The Stony Brook men's basketball team has received significant attention from multiple media outlets during the preseason as the 2011-12 regular season rapidly approaches. Many publications have picked the Seawolves atop the America East after the team came within two points of winning the league title last season.

The Sporting News College Basketball Preview magazine lists the Seawolves as the favorites to win America East and also named senior Bryan Dougher a preseason All-America East player, junior transfer Ron Bracey the conference's top newcomer and head coach Steve Pikiell the conference's top coach.

The Lindy's College Basketball Preview magazine also named Stony Brook the preseason favorite to win the league, selected Dougher as an All-Conference player and named junior Tommy Brenton the league's top rebounder.

In the CBSSports.com Conference Preview, Jeff Goodman has also picked the Seawolves as America East's top team and named Dougher to the All-Conference team.

Lastly, Lindy's College Basketball Preview magazine had the Seawolves second behind defending champion Boston University and named Brenton to the preseason All-Conference team.

The official America East preseason rankings and All-Conference team will be revealed on Thursday, Oct. 13 at the league's annual media day.

Pikiell, in his seventh season as the head coach, returns 12 letterwinners from last season's team that reached its first-ever America East Championship final and came within two points of winning the title. The Seawolves will open preseason practice Oct. 14 and will play their first game Nov. 11 at Indiana. The home schedule begins Nov. 13 against Mount Ida. Individual game and season tickets are now available through the Stony Brook Athletics ticket office. For more information, visit GoSeawolves.org/tickets or call (631) 632-WOLF.

RTC Conference Review puts the Seawolves Tied for #1 with Boston. They go farther ahead and predict a #15 Seed... Oh boy. I don't even know if our team is as good as this Preseason reviews are making it seem. I hope we can live up to the hype

I really think we need someone to have a break out season if we are going to win the conference. Imo several guys have 1st team all conference potential so hopefully one or more of them have big years.

Very true. Should be an intriguing season.

Hopefully  either Mayo or Mac Allister  step up their  games. If they can start  scoring on a consistent  basis we will be in good shape.

I'm convinced that one day it will click and MacAllister will realize that he's the most athletic big in our conference and start playing with some confidence.

Coley, Mayo, and MacAllister all have ceilings as high as anyone in the conference. That could be a special class if they can figure it out.
