BEARS PICKED EIGHTH IN PRESEASON SOUTHLAND POLL

HOUSTON, Texas _ The University of Central Arkansas men's basketball team was picked eighth in the Southland Conference preseason poll released Wednesday as part of Southland Conference Basketball Social Media Day held at the Toyota Center in downtown Houston.

The home of the Houston Rockets is where all 26 head coaches from the league's men's and women's programs are previewed the upcoming season Wednesday. Coaches participated in Q&A sessions, media interviews, social media activities and one-on-one segments. The season is bookended in the Houston area, starting with the preview event and ending nearby at the Merrell Center in Katy, Texas, with the Southland Conference tournament on March 13-17.

SLC Social Media Day can be followed on the Southland's Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts and will air on ESPN3 tonight at 6 p.m. The ESPN3 telecast will be archived.

The Bears, in their fifth season under head coach Russ Pennell, are coming off their best NCAA Division I season, one in which they reached their second consecutive SLC Tournament and also won their first national postseason game at the D-I level, beating Seattle in the CBI Tournament last March. The Bears finished the 2017-18 season with an 18-17 overall record and a 10-8 mark in league play.
 
UCA returns 10 letterwinners from last season, along with four new freshman and one redshirt freshman. The Bears open the season on Nov. 6 against the University of Missouri Tigers in Columbia, Mo. Also on the UCA schedule this year are Power 5 schools Louisville, Oklahoma State, Indiana, Pittsburgh and New Mexico.
   
The 2018-19 SLC season begins Jan. 2 on the road at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
