ALBANY, N.Y.—The America East Conference held its preseason basketball media day on Tuesday afternoon at SEFCU Arena. The site of this season’s conference basketball championships welcomed all 18 head coaches, including Tommy Dempsey and Nicole Scholl of Binghamton.
The event was punctuated by the revelations of the men’s and women’s preseason polls and preseason all-conference teams. Defending men’s champion Vermont and women’s champion Albany were picked to retain their titles. Binghamton was ninth in the men’s poll and eighth in the women’s predictions.
SEFCU was also announced at the title sponsor for the championships, which will be held March 8-10.
Dempsey and the Binghamton men’s squad open up their season Nov. 9 at Loyola while Scholl and the women tip off their 2012-13 campaign the following day at St. Bonaventure.
