Two Florida Gators were selected by the media this week to represent the school on the Southeastern Conference’s preseason All-SEC teams.

In men’s basketball, seniors point guard Scottie Wilbekin and center Patric Young were both named to the Second Team All-SEC; the Gators did not have a representative voted onto the first team.

Florida (five first-place votes) was also picked to finish second in the entire league to Kentucky (21). Tennessee (1) was the only other team to receive a first-place vote.

The Wildcats had freshman forward Julius Randle picked as the SEC Player of the Year and a First Team All-SEC member. Kentucky also boasted four players on the second team including F Willie Cauley-Stein, guard Andrew Harrison and C Dakari Johnson.

    Can’t wait for basketball. I look for Florida to win the league this year, by multiple games.

    In any other year, I would pick UF to win the league going away, but this season, UK is a beast, potentially one of best college teams ever with returnees from last season and new players….still made Randle didn’t come here, but I suspect end of season all-conference players are likely to look very different when they see our transferrs in action and Kasey Hill will be at worst 2nd team, maybe 1st team. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Young end up first team as well

      The UK freshmen will ultimately be revealed as overrated, and UFs transfers will ultimately outplay their expectations, in my opinion.

    Cauley Stein? He is way over rated.
