CAA Preseason Picks

October 18, 2011

Drexel — Courtside’s pick to win the Colonial Athletic Association — was the popular choice, as the Dragons have been selected first in the official CAA Preseason Poll.

Returning six of their top seven players, the Dragons are the only team to have a player represented on both the preseason first and second teams (senior forward Samme Givens and junior guard Chris Fouch, respectively).

JMU, which finished sixth last year, was picked to finish fifth, with point guard Devon Moore as a Second team selection. JMU hasn’t finished a season in the top five since 1999-2000, when it tied for first.

Moore might not be academically eligible to play during the first semester, but he would only miss one conference game if that’s the case. Last year, after returning from a tore knee that wiped out his entire 2009-10 season, the 6-4, 180-pounder averaged 11.3 points and 4.2 assists per game. He leads all returning CAA players in assists.

Here’s are the official  lists…
