Delaney, Dix, Luvsandorj Selected to Preseason All-Southern Conference Team

Spartanburg, S.C. – Three-time Southern Conference Champion Odie Delaney and two-time champion Turtogtokh Luvsandorj along with Jordan Dix, who finished third at last year's conference championships, were named to the 2012-13 All-Conference Preseason team on Wednesday as selected by the coaches.

Chattanooga picked up four-first place votes and 46 total points to edge out The Citadel by two points. The Mocs, who saw their streak of seven straight regular-season titles come to an end last season, won the tournament for the second straight year and seventh time in the last eight seasons.
