Preseason top 10
give me yours for for next year for college basketball.
Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, Michigan State, Purdue, Kansas
It's almost impossible to tell, but from the people that committed, I'd say
2. Michigan State
3. Ohio State
7. North Carolina
Depending on who returns: Butler, Illinois
Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State, Purdue, Illinois, Mizzou, Kansas State, Baylor, Ohio State, Texas.
The Big 12 and Big 10 are gonna be loaded.
every1 forgot butler lol
mwardia, you think butler is top 10 without hayward?
I don't like Butler being a top 10 team without Hayward. I have legitimate questions about whether they can win their conference without him and the emergence of Detroit University's 2011 roster.
Dont forget Valaparasio, they return a lot of talent, and Jay Harris is gonna be a beast and if Hayward declares they might win the conference.
my bad, i forgot hayward declared, whoops lol
Don't sleep on Temple, they were ranked #12 last year and are returning 3 starters and returning the a-10 6th man of the year, plus a good recruiting class.
Temple has let me down the past 2 years. I'm starting to think they're a "pretend" good team.
I don't think Syracuse should be in the Preseason Top 10.
There losing 3 starters. I say 15-25 is a good range to start them out. I go to most of thier games, alot of people believe Joesph will be a excellent replacement for Johnson- Not the case.
do you think Missouri is a potentiol final four team? they have 11 players who i think can contribute, and i think Rattliffe will be this years Wesley Johnson Aubrey Coleman, and Darrington Hobson are just a few of the junior college players who have had a lot of success.
I believe Mizzo will be one of those teams who end the season in the top 10.
I'm interested to see Tony Micthell because he should be a main piece inside along with Kardeem Green.
Kim English, Marcus Denmon and Micheal Dixon will be a much improved guard rotation who could lead Mizzu to a BIG 12 Title.
This is in no particular order Duke, Memphis, Kansas, Michigan State,Ohio State, UNC, Kansas State, Purdue, Mizzou, and Illinois.
Kentucky shouldn't be in any top 10 list they are losing 5 players to the NBA and Darnell Dodson will probably transfer and there losing 3 seniors.
Sorry double post.
Jeff...There getting 4 NBA players in thier incoming recruiting class. Kentucky should be in the top 10
Who are the 4? Knight and Kanter? That's two. Lamb isn't a guaranteed NBA player right now even though he could be. They are losing way to much to even be considered to be a top 10 team in the preseason. They should be no earlier than 15 and that's probably a little to early.
Lamb is a future NBA player. I played with the guy- He's real. He might be a 2-3 year guy.
Kentucky should add Terrance Jones, C.J. Leslie and Chris Hill as well. Jones and Leslie are potential NBA guys as well. Trust me- Kentucky should be good.
I do agree with you- Memphis should be Top 10.
I think they might add one but im pretty sure they wont add both Leslie and Jones. Jones has been rumored to go to Washington. And Leslie has been rumored to go to NC State. Im not saying they wont get either but they wont get both. They could be good next year im just saying they shouldn't be ranked in the preseason top 10.
I believe they will because they will play Kanter at the 5. He came in at 6-10 so I believe they will play him at the 5 to allow Leslie to be the 4 and Jones or Ross to be the 3.
Not sure Memphis has the inside help to be top 10. They'll have good guards in Jackson,Barton, and Kendrick, but don't have much help downlow.
Just wait and see who they get for the rest of the year. They might not get Jones, Leslie, or Ross. Im thinking Jones and Ross are going to Washington from reading a few things today. CJ Leslie might go there or he might go to NC State.
Memphis should be fine in the front court. Angel Garcia was out almost the entire year with a ACL tear he should be back at 100% next year. And Will Coleman wasn't great in the beginning of the year but late in the season he really played well there both potential NBA prospects imo . Plus Wesley Witherspoon can play the 4 and the are bringing in Tarik Black and Hippolyte Tsafak(I hope i spelled that right lol) so they should be fine.
Inside sources telling me Marquis Teague is going to UK
Not really breaking, it was assumed he was going to Kentucky for awhile now, nonetheless, him and Gilchrist will make a dynamic duo. Also he's a junior so it's not going to affect the top 10 at all.
On a side note, Pitino is probably pissed off, he's losing all his in-state recruits to Calipari.
Mizzou is going to be a problem in the Big 12 next year. A full-fledged problem. And this is from a rival fan. Mizzou and Baylor where the 2 teams I hated we were playing last year, but I think both have chances at the top 10 next year. Especially Mizzou
