It’s never too early to start thinking about the next college basketball season.
With nothing to do but wait while NBA teams rest their stars in preparation for the playoffs and watch replays of “One Shining Moment” daily (or is that just me?), why not take a stab at analyzing next year’s college basketball season?
Some pre-pre-pre-pre-season polls have already been released, and sports lovers across the country are voicing their opinions as well.
But of course, not everyone is correct. And it’s my job to set them straight. (There’s an off-chance that I’ll get some things wrong here too, but don’t hold it against me. What else are we supposed to do with our time?)
The Kentucky Wildcats just proved that there is no discounting teams with a lot of young players. But that one upperclassmen leader does seem to be a must.
So who makes the cut? Who will fail to live up to the hype?
Let’s take a look.
