Fresh off a trip to the NCAA Tournament after winning the Missouri Valley Conference tournament, and a share of the 2008-2009 MVC regular season crown, the University of Northern Iowa men's basketball team has been tabbed as the favorite in the Valley among the many preseason publications.

Senior forward Adam Koch and junior guard Kwadzo Ahelegbe has been named to the preseason all-Valley first teams by The Sporting News and Athlon. Koch was also named a preseason first-teamer by Lindy's. Ahelegbe is a second-team pick in Lindy's, while senior center Jordan Eglsder is a third-team honoree in Lindy's.

The UNI men will have its first official practice Fri., Oct. 16, before opening its exhibition season, Oct. 31 against Upper Iowa in the McLeod Center. UNI will open the regular season Nov. 13 at Denver.
