Media Tabs Warren First Team All-SEC, Rebels Second In West

Oct. 18, 2010

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Ole Miss was predicted to finish second in the SEC West, while senior point guard Chris Warren was tabbed to the preseason All-SEC first team in voting by a select panel of both SEC and national media members, it was announced Monday.

Each SEC school selected media members that cover their team and additional writers from across the nation were selected by the conference office to form the voting panel.

The Rebels were picked second in the West behind Mississippi State. The in-state rivals shared the division crown last season.

In addition to being named preseason All-SEC for the third straight year, Warren also received one vote for SEC Player of the Year. As a junior, he was third in the league with 17.2 points per game en route to All-SEC second team honors. The Orlando, Fla., native led all SEC players and ranked fourth in the nation with a school-record 111 3-pointers made, and he is on pace to shatter the Ole Miss career record for treys this season.

Florida was predicted to win the 2011 SEC men’s basketball championship. They earned eight first-place votes, topping Mississippi State which earned three votes. Tennessee and Kentucky each received two votes and Georgia garnered one vote as SEC Champion.

Florida was the media’s favorite to win the East with 110 total points (13 first-place votes), ahead of second-place Kentucky’s 95 points (three first-place votes). Georgia (72 points) and Tennessee (71 points) were separated by just one point while Vanderbilt and South Carolina rounded out the top six.

In the West, Mississippi State’s 118 total points (18 first-place votes) were ahead of Ole Miss’ 84 points (two first-place votes). Alabama was picked third with 82 points. Arkansas, LSU and Auburn round out the top six in the West.

Georgia junior Trey Thompkins was the choice of the media for SEC Men’s Basketball Player of the Year with 18 votes. Warren (one vote) and Kentucky freshman Brandon Knight (one vote) also received votes in the Player of the Year voting.

Thompkins, Warren and Knight were joined on the All-SEC First Team by Georgia junior Travis Leslie and Vanderbilt junior Jeffery Taylor.

Arkansas’ Marshawn Powell led All-SEC Second Team honors and was joined by Florida’s Boynton and Parsons, Alabama’s JaMychal Green and Tennessee’s Scotty Hopson.

Points were compiled on a 6-5-4-3-2-1 basis for each division. Each media member also voted for one team as an overall conference champion and a five-player All-SEC Team.

The 2010-11 SEC Media Preseason Poll tips off SEC Basketball Media Day, Oct. 21 at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Alabama.

Following a Nov. 5 exhibition game against Delta State at 6 p.m., Ole Miss officially begins its 2010-11 season on Nov. 12 when the Rebels host Arkansas State at 7 p.m.

Fans will also have a chance to “Meet the Rebels” in The Grove prior to the Oct. 30 home football game against Auburn.
