Defending Southeastern Conference champion Kentucky is picked to win the league's men's basketball title again.

A panel of SEC and national media made the Wildcats the preseason favorite. The preseason picks were announced Wednesday at the SEC Tipoff event. Kentucky was followed in order by Florida, Texas A&M, Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Auburn, Mississippi, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Tennessee and LSU.

Voting for SEC preseason player of the year resulted in a three-way tie featuring Georgia forward Yante Mate, Missouri forward Michael Porter Jr. and Texas A&M forward Robert Williams.

First-team all-SEC selections included those three players as well as Florida guard KeVaughn Allen and Kentucky guard Hamidou Diallo. Second-team selections were Alabama's Collin Sexton, Kentucky's Kevin Knox, Ole Miss teammates Terence Davis and Deandre Burnett, Mississippi State's Quinndary Weatherspoon, Texas A&M's Tyler Davis and Vanderbilt's Matthew Fisher-Davis.
