The CSU Men's Basketball team has been picked to finish fourth in the preseason Mountain West Conference media poll published yesterday. This is the highest preseason ranking for the Rams since they were picked to finish third coming into the 2003-2004 season. New Mexico was picked to finish on top.
The Big Sky Conference preseason Men's Basketball polls are out, and the defending champion UNC Bears are not favored to repeat. Northern Colorado has been picked to finish 3rd in the media poll, and 4th in the preseason coaches poll. Weber State was the top pick in both polls.
