The Southeastern Conference unveiled its 16th annual men’s basketball coaches preseason All-SEC teams Monday, and Tennessee seniors Jordan Bowden and Lamonte Turner were second-team selections.

Turner had previously earned second-team inclusion on the media’s preseason All-SEC team.

Both players enter the season on the verge of joining UT’s 50-man 1,000-Point Club. They are the team’s top returning scorers, as Turner averaged 11.0 points per game, and Bowden averaged 10.6 points per game.

Turner, Bowden and the rest of the Volunteers open the 2019-20 season Tuesday when they host UNC Asheville at 7 p.m. ET at Thompson-Boling Arena. Tickets remain available at AllVols.com.

All 14 schools are represented on the two teams with Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss and Tennessee each having multiple selections. In all, 40 different players received votes for the coaches’ teams.

The coaches’ preseason All-SEC first and second teams consist of a minimum of eight players on each squad, voted on by the SEC basketball coaches. No ties were broken, coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players, and no predicted order of finish was made.
