Blue Ribbon, the college basketball preseason bible, has released their preseason top 25 list, and the top five is about what you should expect.
In fact, if there is an outlet that does not have this top five in some order, then you probably need to stop reading that outlet.
After that, there are some picks here that I disagree with. Wisconsin at No. 6 is a bit high, as is Purdue at No. 9. UConn at No. 15? Butler at No. 16? West Virginia at No. 21? I’m not on any of those three teams this season.
But beyond that, this is a pretty good ranking, and won’t differ from what ours will look like when it is released.
- North Carolina
- Michigan State
- Saint Mary’s
- Florida State
- West Virginia
- NC State
- Rhode Island
