The University of Cincinnati's Basketball team has been picked 5th in the pre-season Big East Media. This coming on the heels of the Bearcats first trip to the NCAA since the Bob Huggins era. UC did not pick up any first place votes.

(First place votes)
1. Connecticut (7) 209 points

Yancy Gates is the only Bearcat who landed on one of the preseason all league teams. He is on the second team along with Alex Orihaki, Peyton Siva, Scoop Jardine and Maalik Waynes. And here is the normal warning that pre season polls are precisely worthless.
