Submitted on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 9:38PM EDT
1 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State Even with Landfor out for ? amount of time MSU has a great coach with great players with experience
2 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Calipari has 2 returning quality players along with the #2 class, seems like a good start to try and win back the sec
3 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Kansas may be in trouble soon, but should stay quality, maybe they start a new streak trying to prove the haters wrong
4 University of Louisville Logo Louisville A very strong 6 or 7 players should keep Louisville going after last years surprising greatness after losing pitino
5 Duke University Logo Duke #3 recruiting class and Tre and Coach K sounds like a good start, I know many dont think they look as dominant but maybe they can "sneak"
6 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland Seems like one of the first years in a while Maryland has this high of hopes since moving to the B1G
7 University of Florida Logo Florida Blackshear getting to start this year will help Mike White after getting a top 10 recruiting class as well
8 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina Cole Anthony sounds like he should pick UNC up real high with Williams, everyone is raving about him, hope he doesn't get hurt
9 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga Tillie sticking around should help Few wreck the WCC, a top 15 class is pretty surprising (actually crazy surprising)
10 University of Virginia Logo Virginia Lost a lot and don't have a huge recruiting class, but its Tony Bennett do I have to say much else. Also Diakite should really help & Clark
11 Villanova University Logo Villanova A big recruiting class should help Jay bring Nova back near the top of the pile after last year just being good
12 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall A strongly veteran team should get SEton hall a lot of eyes on them this year (historically know almost nothign of them)
13 University of Memphis Logo Memphis Penny and his #1 class certainly are quite the talk coming into the year, and he did a decent job last year. Should be interesting
14 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech A 16 ranked class, some Grad transfers, and Chris Beard who apparently is the man that can make TTU a strong bball power
15 University of Oregon Logo Oregon A top 4 class? wtf, Altman should do well with them as well as having experience with Payton Pritchard
16 Baylor University Logo Baylor Now we all know Scott Drew is a good coach by now, with doing so well with many injuries and lower ranked players
17 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State Lots of returning players and a top tier class, pretty solid looking
18 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's Supposedly good enough to get close to gonzaga in the WCC, and they get a quick transfer from cincy
19 Utah State University Logo Utah State Ranked high by many folks, and have a star in MErril, low in kenpom tho.
20 Auburn University Logo Auburn MAybe a little high, high kenpom, good coach even if people don't like him, though their 3 best (probly) are gone but still seem quality
21 Purdue University Logo Purdue I believe in MAtt Painter despite Carsen Edwards leaving, but they have some quality behind now
22 Virginia Commonwealth University Logo VCU experienced team at a mid major (read an article today about how you shouldnt say that) that were great and sould be great
23 University of Arizona Logo Arizona Sean Miller is still has a good coach, a top recruiting class, but granted he doesn't have much returning
24 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee while his top recruiting class comes next year seems Tenn should be string with Barnes being a good coach (despite texas fans protests)
25 Providence College Logo Providence I'm leaning on a proven coach with a good player her for sure
