The Buffs also were one of three teams to receive a first place vote.

The 2013-14 Pac-12 men's basketball preseason poll has been released and the Buffs come in at third, one point behind UCLA. The Arizona Wildcats are picked to finish first.

Arizona, led by junior guard Nick Johnson (11.5 ppg/3.6 rpg/3.2 apg), tallied 21 first-place votes and is the clear favorite of the media to claim the 2013-14 Pac-12 title. Defending regular-season champion UCLA, guided by sophomore guard Kyle Anderson (9.7 ppg/8.6 rpg), earned one first-place vote and edged out Colorado for the second spot by one point.

This is another bellwether moment for Tad Boyle and his Buffaloes program that continues to create new milestones. Check back in with us at 11 for Pac-12 Media Day coverage.
