LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The New Mexico State University men’s basketball team was voted to win the Western Athletic Conference title in both the WAC Coaches’ Preseason poll and the media poll.
NMSU received eight of the nine first-place votes in the coaches’ poll and all 24 first-place votes in the media poll.
According to the voting done by the leagues’ coaches, Seattle University is picked to finish second, Bakersfield third with Idaho and Utah Valley tying for fourth.
“Anytime we get selected at the top it creates a challenge to try to defend the target that is on our back,” said head coach Marvin Menzies. “We have to be able to use this for motivation and at the same time we need to make sure we have our humility intact.”
Also for the Aggies, junior guard Daniel Mullings was selected as the Preseason Player of the Year in both polls.
Mullings finished the 2012-13 season as a second team All-WAC honoree while posting 13.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.
