BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Rhode Island was picked ninth in the 2013-14 Atlantic 10 Preseason Poll and senior guard Xavier Munford was named to the Second Team Preseason All-Conference team in an announcement made at the conference's annual men's basketball media day, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  

Munford is the league's top returning scorer (17.4 points per game).  He was a 2013 USBWA All-District I selection a season ago and will serve as one of two team captains for the 2013-14 campaign.  Joining Munford on the second team are Sherrod Wright (George Mason), Isaiah Armwood (George Washington), and Langston Galloway (Saint Joseph's) and Ronald Roberts (Saint Joseph's)

VCU tops the preseason poll, voted on by the league's 13 head coaches and selected media, followed by Saint Louis, La Salle, Massachusetts, Saint Joseph's, Richmond, Dayton, and George Mason.  George Washington was picked 10th, followed by Fordham, St. Bonaventure, and Duquesne.
