RankTeamReason
1 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State I'm not sold on Cassius Winston being the best player in the country but I am sold on him being a top 5 player and Josh Langford
2 University of Florida Logo Florida Keyontae johnson is my favorite player in college basketball and I believe him and Nembhard are the reason Florida will win the chip
3 University of Louisville Logo Louisville The second Jordan Nwora returned this was a top 5 crew
4 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky I think this is the blend of upperclassman, guard play and elite freshman that makes this UK team really dangerous
5 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina I think Cole Anthony is that good but also I think Justin Pierce is that good and Garrison Brooks will take a big leap
6 Duke University Logo Duke I wanted to rank them lower but I can't because of Tre Jones and the freshman they have in tow.
7 Texas Tech University Logo Texas Tech Davide Moretti will be 1st team all big 12. This is the best team in the B12 and it won't be close
8 University of Kansas Logo Kansas I truly do not think they are that good. I'm mad I even ranked them this high
9 University of Maryland, College Park Logo Maryland Eric Ayala is a huge ex-factor for this team, I love their talent but will they Maryland
10 Ohio State University Logo Ohio State DJ Carton is going to be the best freshman PG in the BIG10
11 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga the WCC favorite but not by as much as one would think. If this team is going to win the title, Admon Gilder needs to be legit
12 Seton Hall University Logo Seton Hall Myles Powell is the best player in the country.
13 University of Virginia Logo Virginia I don't think we see Diakiate take as big as of leap as we think, he's an auxillary piece IMO. Jay Huff, Morsell and Key are the drivers
14 Louisiana State University Logo LSU I love Skylar Mays and Javonte Smart. If they can avoid sanctions I think they make another run
15 Villanova University Logo Villanova if Bryan Antoine comes back and fits into the group as the go to guy next to Bey, I think they have elite 8 level skill
16 Utah State University Logo Utah State This is a very very very good team, I expect them to beat either LSU/Florida
17 University of Colorado Logo Colorado They are deep, they return a lot, tyler Bey is very very good
18 Xavier University Logo Xavier Travis Steele is going to do one hell of a coaching job on these boys
19 University of Arizona Logo Arizona This is a bet on Nicco Mannion and Josh Green
20 Baylor University Logo Baylor I think this will be Scott Drews best Baylor team since the Pierre Jackson days
21 Saint Mary's College of California Logo St. Mary's Jordan ford and Malik Fitts almost beat Villanova and I think they can win the WCC
22 University of Oregon Logo Oregon Payton Pritchard is my favorite PG in the country and I think he makes a comeback after last year
23 University of Cincinnati Logo Cincinnati AAC Favorite, I think they will out grit memphis and Cane Broome is one of the best players in the country
24 University of Memphis Logo Memphis they are all freshman, and I don't know how they'll fit because I don't know how good of a pure coach Penny will be
25 Florida State University Logo Florida State I think i'm 100% in on Leonard Hamilton and MJ Walker and Patrick Williams
