Two members of the LSU men's basketball team were selected Monday to the 2006-07 Pre-season All-SEC team as chosen by the league coaches.
The team consisted of two
eight-player units, voted on by the head coaches. No ties were broken and
coaches could not vote for members of their own teams.
Glen Davis, the junior forward from
who was the 2006 SEC Player of the Year, was one of four unanimous selections on
the first team. Sophomore Tasmin Mitchell, from Denham Springs, was selected as
one of the eight players on the pre-season second team.
Joining Davis as unanimous selections on the first team were Ronald
Steele of Alabama, Joakim Noah of Florida and Chris Lofton of Tennessee.
The SEC holds its annual media day
on Wednesday in Birmingham. LSU and Florida, the two schools
representing the league in the NCAA Final Four a year ago, are scheduled to open
the event in the first session at 10:30 a.m.
