Pre-Preseason Top 25

Congratulations are in order for the 2006 and 2007 National Champion Florida Gators, the first back-to-back title winners since Duke in the early ‘90s. What about next season, though? As soon as "One Shining Moment" ended, true college basketball fans were still high off of the Final Four and wanted more basketball. What better way to quench your thirst for college hoops than to take a look at possible teams that can make a run in the 2007-2008 season.

Obviously, these rankings are definitely going to change over the next few months, with early-entries, coaching changes, etc. I will have a fresh set of revised rankings after the NBA Draft, but, until then, this is what the college basketball scope looks like heading into the offseason.

1. Kansas
3. North Carolina
4. Memphis
5. Georgetown
6. Louisville
7. Tennessee
8. USC
9. Michigan State
10. Washington State
11. Ohio State
12. Duke
13. Marquette
14. Georgia Tech
15. Indiana
16. Stanford
17. Texas
18. Arkansas
19. Oregon
20. West Virginia
21. Alabama
22. Washington
23. North Carolina State
24. Kansas State
25. Mississippi State

Ten Other Teams to Watch
- Davidson
- Gonzaga
- Villanova
- Texas A&M
- Butler
- Xavier
- Syracuse
- Pittsburgh
- Nevada
- Clemson


  1. Kansas is so good they are ranked twice ! ;)

  2. Southern Illinois should at least be in top 30. Major omission

  3. Is this a joke? Indian has a better than ever D.J. White as well as #2 recruit Eric Gordon. I would put them 10 at worst possibly 7,8

  4. I do not understand how Wisconsin dosen't make it on ethier one of lists. Davidson!! Your telling me Davidson is better then Wisconsin, come on wake up! Wiscosin has both their 6-11 big men back, great defensive guard Michael Flowers, Marcus Landry, great talent in Treven Hughes, and 3pt sharp shooter in Jason Bohannon! To me Wiscosin is a top 25 team!

  5. O and also the Badgers have one of the Best coaches in all of NCAA Basketball, Bo Ryan!

  6. nc state and washington state are way better than on that poll. With the new additions nc state should at least be in the top 10. washington state only lost 1 player last year and is way better now with the more experience and should be wayyyy more

  7. How is Kentucky not ranked in the top 25 after getting the recruits we got after Gillispie came to the rescue.

  8. In regrads to the kentucky hombre.... You probably wish that Tub o goo stayed your head coach because you fokers blow ass this year bro
