UVM’s men’s basketball team trails only Boston University in the America East preseason coaches’ poll, a sentiment shared by several publications — except one.
The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com placed the Catamounts as the top dog in its America East preview.
Here’s a snippet from the Web site’s America East outlook: Vermont hasn’t won the past two America East titles, but, somehow, the road to that crown always seems to have to go through Burlington. It also has to go through Marqus Blakely. Yes, the 6-5 (and that may be a stretch) giant, is back, again. He’s a two-time conference Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year. he will be missing sidekick Mike Trimboli and useful part Colin McIntosh, but this is a team that again has to be mentioned in the mix for the conference title.”
