1. Kentucky
2. Michigan State
3. Louisville
4. Duke
5. Kansas
6. Arizona
7. Michigan
T-8. Oklahoma State
T-8. Syracuse

Re: 2013-14 College Basketball Thread

I think Michigan should be real good again. Hardaway and Burke were big losses but i expect my boy Stauskas to break out and Mcgary to continue his play from the ncaa tournament once hes healthy.



Oh yeah and im sorta looking forward to watching Kansas with WIGGINS

Re: 2013-14 College Basketball Thread

Michigan and to perhaps a similar extent Indiana look like they are on the verge of revolutionizing the Big Ten's style. These are teams with great athletes that want to stretch the floor in half-court sets and throw outlets/run after defensive rebounds. Michigan St and (slowly) Ohio St are heading this direction as well.

For those who have seen too much Bo Ryan slopball dictating the pace of the league, it's a great sight.

Nice to see Notre Dame at 21. Hopefully they adjust well in the ACC.

Re: 2013-14 College Basketball Thread

Lots of people straight laughing the Canes off. Rion Brown dropped 20 in the exhibition against Fla Tech. I think he has a legit chance at the ACC scoring title this season. People don't realize we have another 10 year senior returning in Garrius Adams. Jekiri the 7 footer added about 30 pounds. Swoope's another solid senior on the wing. I think we're going to be a grit and grind type of team this year and surprise a lot of people, in the same mold of UVA last year or FSU recently. Don't doubt Larranaga.

The ACC is going to be insane with Pitts, ND and Cuse this year. NBA like. Could see 7 or 8 teams make the big dance from the conference.

Re: 2013-14 College Basketball Thread

Deonte Burton coming back for his senior season, look out. Dark Horse MWC POY for sure.

Nevada is probably as deep as anyone in the country at 1-3, the problems is the 4 and 5

Re: 2013-14 College Basketball Thread

The Mountain West was very competitive last year. New Mexico returns a lot of their core while Colorado State and UNLV lost a lot of firepower, though still have some pretty good talent to fill in. Nevada lost their leading scorer but returns Burton. They had an abysmal season last year but the MWC won't be nearly as good this one. That alone should see them make a big turn around.

Don't look off Pacific, your season opener though. They won the Big West last season and while they lost an explosive player in McCloud, I think Sama Taku is prime to have a big senior year. Should be a good test to open up the year.

We play Pacific almost every year, it's a good series.

Re: 2013-14 College Basketball Thread

Just remembered that Pacific joined the WCC this year. They're going to be really pumped this season. On the flip side just hand Long Beach the Big West title right now.

I'm going to be following the MAAC closely this year. I think Rhamel Brown has a legit shot of being drafted in 2014 out of Manhattan. He's a 6'7 Ben Wallace.
