AAC Media Day

It is tomorrow in Philadelphia. Mick, Gary and Troy will be representing UC.


@American_MBB
The action starts early as the preseason poll and preseason awards will be announced at 7:30am ET #AmericanHoops

I'd expect Troy and Gary to be on the first team and Jacob Evans be on the second with a possibility of Washington

I think pat Birt should be in there somewhere probably between him Evans and Moore for the last spot on the second team.

Tulsa is suppose to be bad this year but he will have one of the highest ppg in the league

Troy Caupain named preseason Co-Player of the Year and First Team All-AAC
Gary Clark named First Team All-AAC
-Both are unanimous

Wow, Caupain getting some serious love. Great to see, hopefully he follows up on the attention.

Also, let's all hope UC does better than the last time they were picked to win the conference!

Great Troy is getting that kind of respect, but how does Evans get left off completely. Hopefully a huge motivator for that young man this year.

POY: Dedrick Lawson (Memphis) (Caupain was Co-POY)
DPOY: Amida Brimah (UConn) -- guess they don't do this award?
Newcomer: Aterique Gilbert (UConn)

1st team: Troy Caupain (UC), Gary Clark (UC), Daymean Dotson (UH), Rodney Purvis (UConn), Dedrick Lawson (Memphis)

2nd team: Rob Gray (Houston), Jacob Evans (UC), Shake Milton (SMU), Ben Moore (SMU), Amida Brimah (UConn)
Overall I did quite well. UC and UConn were only separated by 1 vote. I am surprised Purvis didn't even make 2nd team but Jalen Adams did. The picks of the McMurry and Tyson were sympathy picks to bottom tier teams.

Mick can't help himself:

Neill Ostrout @NeillOstrout
Mick Cronin: "It takes some people two-and-a-half seconds to count to point-8."

This stuff annoys me to no end. #DumpMick
