ANNVILLE, Pa. – The Middle Atlantic Conference released the MAC Commonwealth men's basketball preseason coaches poll Tuesday. Stevenson University was selected eighth of nine teams.
Lycoming College was picked as the preseason favorite with six of nine first place votes to outdistance Lebanon Valley, which garnered a pair of first place votes, and Albright, which received the other first place nod.
Stevenson returns five players from last season's squad. Sophomore Kyle Wooldridge is the Mustangs' leading returning scorer after connecting on a team-high 35 three-pointers a season ago. Stevenson also welcomes back junior Sean Mayberry, who averaged 13.3 points per game as a sophomore in 2015-16.
The Mustangs open the 2017-18 schedule at home on Wednesday, November 15, when they host Elizabethtown in an 8:00 contest at Owings Mills Gymnasium. Stevenson's MAC Commonwealth opener is set for Wednesday, November 29 at Albright.
