Didn’t make it up to Bethlehem, Pa., for the Patriot League’s media day, but just passing along the preseason poll from the league’s coaches and sports information directors (none of whom were permitted to place their own team anywhere on their ballot).

American was picked fifth in the league, while Navy was picked seventh. Midshipmen guard Jordan Sugars was also on the preseason all-league team.
