The Atlantic 10 Media Days are complete, with the men’s side meeting in Pittsburgh last week and the women’s side congregating in Richmond yesterday. Polls were conducted by a group of select media members and the league’s coaches to determine the preseason predicted order of finish and all-league teams.

Because the media members the conference selected were all professionals, The Intrepid decided to conduct a student media preseason poll made up of student media members from across the A-10.

Seven of the league’s school newspapers contributed by submitting ballots of their men’s and women’s predicted orders of finish and their top male and female players for all-league teams.

The newspapers that participated were: The Intrepid- St. Bonaventure, The Good Five Cent Cigar- Rhode Island, The Duquesne Duke- Duquesne, Flyer News- Dayton, The GW Hatchet- George Washington, The Commonwealth Times- VCU, The Davidsonian- Davidson
