NEW YORK (AP) — Xavier is the preseason favorite in Atlantic 10 Conference men’s basketball.

The Musketeers, who have clinched at least a share of the regular-season title the last five years, received 18 first-place votes on Thursday from the league’s head coaches and members of the media.

Temple, which has won three of the last four A-10 tournaments, was second with the other four first-place votes.

Saint Louis was third followed by St. Bonaventure, Richmond, Dayton, St. Joseph’s, George Washington, Duquesne, Rhode Island, Charlotte, Massachusetts, La Salle and Fordham.

The preseason first-team is all seniors: Xavier’s Tu Holloway, last season’s player of the year, St. Bonaventure’s Andrew Nicholson, Temple’s Ramone Moore and Juan Fernandez, and George Washington’s Tony Taylor.
