Hampden-Sydney was picked 8th in the ODAC preseason poll and will look to move up in the standings behind strong veteran leadership and a large and talented freshman class. Five upperclassmen and four sophomores dot the roster, led by senior post players Guilherme Guimaraes, Hunter Kuehn, and Nick Chase. Several freshmen will be competing for starting spots and reserve roles, highlighted by potential starters Jake Hahn, Raheem Anthony, and Will Sparks.
Davidson, the alma mater of former NBA MVP Stephen Curry, was picked sixth in the Atlantic 10 Preseason Poll, while Peyton Aldridge was tabbed preseason all-conference. The Wildcats return four starters and 12 letterwinners from last year's team that finished 17-15 overall.
