The Kansas City Star
Brown was previously chosen as an all-SEC second-team player in the preseason media poll. MU senior guard Earnest Ross was chosen to the coaches’ second team.
Alabama senior guard Trevor Releford, a Bishop Miege grad, made the coaches’ first team and Kentucky sophomore forward Willie Cauley-Stein, an Olathe Northwest grad, made the second team.
The coaches did not vote on a predicted order of finish and each team consisted of eight players. The media chose the Tigers to finish fifth.
