BOCA RATON, FL - Sophomore Raymond Taylor was named to the preseason all-conference team and the Florida Atlantic men's basketball team was picked to finish 2nd in the Sun Belt's Eastern Division by the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook.
The Blue Ribbon Yearbook is a prominent preseason publication that will soon be printing its 30th edition. Taylor was named to the All-Sun Belt Third Team last season after finishing 11th in the nation in assists with 5.9 per game and was second on the team in scoring with 14.2 points per game. Taylor was joined on the preseason squad by Sergio Kerusch (Western Kentucky), Tim Williams (South Alabama), Josh White and George Odufuwa (North Texas).
FAU returns nine of its top-10 players from last season's team that finished 10-8 in Sun Belt play. The Owls were picked only behind Western Kentucky. Middle Tennessee, FIU, and Troy rounded out the picks in the East.
The Owls will begin the 2010-11 season on November 4th, when they host Northwood.
