What is your preseason top 25 poll for the 2010-2011 college basketball year?
Here are my top 25 teams:
1- DUKE- With Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler staying, the Blue Devils will have one of the best duos in the country. Also, they have a strong recruiting class coming in headlined by Kyrie Irving and Josh Hairston. They will still have the depth that they had this year, with Dawkins and Curry coming off the bench. Duke will be the preseason number 1 for the first time since 2005.
2-MICHIGAN STATE- They retain Lucas, Green and Morgan back, Sparty will certainly be a contender for the National Championship. They have a solid set of freshmen coming in and should have enough depth in order to give their starters rest.
3-OHIO STATE- Although they lost Evan Turner, the Buckeyes will be a great team next year. They will still have Buford, Lauderdale and Lighty and they welcome top prospect Jared Sullinger to the starting lineup. Look for the Buckeyes to contend with Sparty for the Big Ten Championship.
4-BAYLOR- Dunn returns, giving the Bears one of the best guards in the country. The loss of Udoh is big, but they will replace him with Perry Jones, a 6-11, versatile forward. Look for Baylor to be a Final Four contender.
5-VILLANOVA- Wayns will follow in Scottie Reynolds' steps as the leader of the floor for Wildcats. Hopefully, Yarou is healthy the entire season, which would give them a better rebounding lineup. NOVA will most likely win the Big East, if they are able to usurp WVU.

you recognize to boot as I that those preseason polls are based merely as plenty on overall performance projections thinking the drawing near schedule than it fairly is taking into attention the previous season. Louisville will play a thoroughly pathetic schedule and the actuality that *if* they performed interior the SEC, or %12, or anyplace they might lose 3 – 4 video games a year isn't very suitable. they are going to be favorite in each and every game they play and can desire to fairly end the season 11 – a million. whether they end undefeated they probable does not earn a niche interior the BCS Championship game over a one loss SEC software. As such, they'll probable end interior the proper 10 whether or not they're between the ten ultimate communities interior the rustic or not. Notre Dame lost their beginning quarterback and can desire to fairly lose 3 – 4 video games this year. 11 is far too extreme, yet they traditionally acquire score and attention they neither deserve or have earned. Ole omit isn't even interior the proper 25 and that i think of they could make some noise this year. They won’t win the West yet 9 – 3 is a threat if the chips fall their way.
