The Big East is going to be ridiculous. 7 teams right there in the top 25, and Syracuse and WVU very much in the mix.

WVU will probably be in the top 15 at seasons end, Bob Huggins a is leadin them in the right direction and getting very good recruits. the starting lineup should be joe mazzula(key return), alex ruoff(key return), dasean butler(key return), devin ebanks(stud freshman) and either kevin jones(stud freshman) or wellington smith(key return) they will be very good, but coming out of the big east, they could lose a handful of games during conference play, not to mention they play davidson, ohio st. and THE ELON PHOENIX : P

Geez, Duke fans all over! I can't wait to see you guys Dec. 2nd. Mackey is going to be louder than its ever been that game.

I'm suprised Purdue got the credit it was due; #10 sounds about right.

I think Davidson is overrated this year. They lost their unsung hero, Jason Richards. I can't wait to see them against Purdue this year; Curry will feel the wrath of Purdue's oversized guards!

I am surprised that my UCONN team is getting such a high ranking in the preseason poll because you can argue for about 3 other BIG EAST teams that could really make the case for that ranking.

I just can't wait for Big East conference play.

MSU will not end the season ranked as high this year because our schedule is absolutely brutal, I do believe we have the deepest team in the big ten no question and possibly the nation.

Do you mean the regular season? If I'm not mistaken, they do rankings after the tournament, right? In which case MSU would be up there since you're saying they have a good team, just a bad schedule.

Hey Duke fans, you should be more concerned with actually having a good tournament team than receiving more regular season accolades (like where you're ranked).

Dukes fans have to be proud about their rankings preseason and during the season. because come march..they are looking for towards next year. duke being ranked and beat Carolina atleast once is now a good season for Duke. However in Chapel Hill, no seaon is complete without cutting down the nets. Looking like this will be another year of doing that!
