The AP has released their first iteration of the top 25, and right there at No. 1 are the very UNC Tar Heels that staring down the barrel of NCAA sanctions.

Anyway, here’s the full preseason top 25 for your viewing pleasure:

1. North Carolina (35 first-place votes)
2. Kentucky (10)
3. Maryland (14)
4. Kansas (5)
5. Duke
6. Virginia (1)
7. Iowa State
8. Oklahoma
9. Gonzaga
10. Wichita State
11. Villanova
12. Arizona
13. Michigan State
