CANMORE, Alta. — The 2017-18 season tips off on November 10th, which means the final month without college basketball is finally upon us.

Fans all across the country are gearing up for another exciting college basketball season, and with the recent scandal involving the FBI and several power conference programs across the NCAA, the level of anticipation is through the roof.

Conference preview pieces are starting to circulate from various media outlets, and conferences are hosting their annual media days and announcing their preseason polls and award winners. It’s always interesting to see how coaches and media rank teams in their respective conferences.

With the season right around the corner, we are starting to release our Preseason Player of the Year awards for each conference, along with three All-Conference teams. Picked at random, we will release two sets of awards each day.

Coming into the season, the narrative surrounding the Atlantic Sun Conference is consistent across the board. It’s Dunk City, and then everyone else. While the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles are the top team in the conference on paper, anything can indeed happen come March.

The Atlantic Sun tournament is no different, as we have seen our fair share of upsets over the past couple of seasons in the single-elimination event. In 2017-18, the conference is chalked full of talent, including several up-and-coming stars who are ready to step in for graduating seniors.

Below, take a look at who we have selected as our Preseason Atlantic Sun Player of the Year, along with who factors in where on our Preseason All-Atlantic Sun teams!
