Submitted on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 9:40PM EDT
1 University of Kansas Logo Kansas Between what they return and who they add, Kansas seems to be an easy pick to start at #1
2 Duke University Logo Duke Duke brings an impressive class and is always able to compete. I expect more of the same this season.
3 Gonzaga University Logo Gonzaga A surprising end to their run at the hands of FSU shouldn't put a damper n this season. The Zags are loaded and a key contender.
4 University of Kentucky Logo Kentucky Like Kansas, Kentucky returns or brings in a lot of talent. But can they work together effectively?
5 University of Nevada, Reno Logo Nevada The Martin twins and others choosing to return makes Nevada a top team. It will be tough to go farther this season but Nevada has the means.
6 University of Tennessee Logo Tennessee Outside of Kentucky, the Vols look like the best in the SEC. My final four pick last season may have been a season too soon.
7 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Logo North Carolina
8 University of Virginia Logo Virginia
9 Villanova University Logo Villanova The defending champions loose a fair bit, but I think Nova is here to stay and should prove capable of reloading and jumping right back in.
10 Auburn University Logo Auburn
11 Kansas State University Logo Kansas State Another team bringing back key elements, Kansas State may be the biggest threat to Kansas, if the B12 is willing to change that is.
12 Michigan State University Logo Michigan State
13 West Virginia University Logo West Virginia
14 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Logo Virginia Tech
15 Clemson University Logo Clemson
16 Florida State University Logo Florida State
17 University of Oregon Logo Oregon
18 University of Michigan Logo Michigan
19 Syracuse University Logo Syracuse
20 Marquette University Logo Marquette At the moment I think Marquette is Nova's biggest threat in the Big East.
21 Texas Christian University Logo TCU
22 San Diego State University Logo San Diego State Likely the second best team in the mountain west. They are out of Nevada's range, but should still reach the tourney.
23 University at Buffalo Logo Buffalo The Bulls bring back much of last year's team and should be easy favorites in the MAC. This is a solid team and march was no fluke.
24 University of California, Los Angeles Logo UCLA
25 Louisiana State University Logo LSU
