First, obviously is the Big Sky, where they selected Will Cherry of Montana. Their summaries are the essence of non-descript, but still interesting to see an outsiders view of the conference:
The Grizzlies are going to really rely on this versatile backcourt leader.It will certainly be interesting to see who the coaches and/or media select at the Preseason Player of the Year... I am thinking it will certainly be either Cherry or Damian Lillard of Weber State. That will be a litmus test to see how well followers of the League think Lillard's recovery is going.
Cherry can do it all and will have a break-out season as a junior.
Also of the note is the Great West, and they have future Big Sky performer Troy Huff of North Dakota as their preseason pick for Player of the Year.
Troy Huff is already considered one of the best players in Fighting Sioux history and he's just getting started.
The long, skilled combo guard finished up his freshman year by scoring in double figures in 16 of his last 18 games.
