Jacksonville was picked first in the preseason coaches’ poll and East Tennessee State was picked first in the media poll.

Lipscomb was selected sixth in the coaches’ poll and seven in the media poll.

Belmont is the defending A-Sun regular season and tournament champion.

The A-Sun tournament will take place at Lipscomb this season. Neither Belmont or Lipscomb had any players selected to the preseason All-Conference team.

Both Lipscomb and Belmont begin practices this weekend.

The A-Sun men’s poll will be released Wednesday.
