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.
