Coaches, media pick SU Men’s Basketball to finish #6 in D-I action. 

Cameron Tyson and Riley Grigsby have been named to the Preseason All-Western Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Teams, as voted on by the league’s 13 head coaches.

Tyson was selected to the eight-member First Team while Grigsby was selected to the eight-member Second Team. In what is expected to be a highly competitive conference, Seattle University was picked to finish sixth in the Preseason Coaches Poll and the Preseason Media Poll.

A redshirt junior guard, Tyson is the Redhawks’ top returning scorer, averaging 14.7 points to go with 5.2 rebounds per game in 2021-22. He earned Second Team All-WAC and WAC All-Newcomer Team honors at the conclusion of last season. He led the WAC in three pointers made (105) and attempts (279) and was 10th in the nation in three-point field goals per game (3.2).

Tyson also earned selection to the Media Preseason All-WAC Team, composed of eight members.

Grigsby, a guard/forward combo, returns for a fifth season in 2022-23. He last earned Preseason All-WAC honors in 2021-22 and finished that season as a Second Team All-WAC selection, averaging 17.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Last year, he averaged 12.8 points and 3.6 rebounds per game, while becoming the fifth SU player to reach the 1,000 career-point mark in the modern Division I era.

Men’s Basketball is coming off of a banner year in 2021-22, going 23-9 overall and 14-4 in WAC play to earn its first-ever WAC regular-season title.
