Brigham Young University's men's basketball team has been picked to finish second in its second season in the West Coast Conference.
In a preseason poll of the WCC's nine head coaches, Gonzaga received seven first-place votes and 63 of 64 possible points. The Cougars received one first-place vote and 55 points, followed by defending champion Saint Mary's College, with 52 points.
Senior center Brandon Davies is the only BYU player on the WCC preseason all-conference team, also selected by the coaches. Davies averaged more than 15 ppg last season.
