UNI Men picked 2nd, Tuttle named to preseason first team

Posted: Updated:
 The Northern Iowa men's basketball team has been picked to finish second in the preseason Missouri Valley Conference poll.

UNI senior forward Seth Tuttle has also been named to the preseason All-MVC squad. Tuttle earned first-team All-MVC honors last season after leading the Panthers in scoring (15.4 ppg), rebounding (8.0 rpg) and blocks (1.1 bpg).

Following a record-setting season which saw Wichita State climb as high as No. 2 in the national polls and reel off 35-straight wins before a loss, pollsters are picking the Shockers to win the 2014-15 Missouri Valley Conference men's basketball crown.
