BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WKYT) - The Kentucky men's basketball Wildcats have been selected by league media members as the preseason favorite to win the SEC title.

This is the 15th time since 1998-99 that UK has been picked to win the conference championship.

UK has won 48 SEC regular-season titles. Coach John Calipari has won the league championship in 2010, 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Three Wildcats were named to the preseason All-SEC teams. Sophomore Ashton Hagans was picked to the All-SEC first-team, while freshmen Tyrese Maxey and sophomore EJ Montgomery were voted to the second-team all-conference squad.

Hagans also received at least one vote for SEC Player of the Year.
