After last season, a lot of talented freshmen left after their first year of college basketball. Some teams were fortunate enough to have players returning for the next season. Here are my preseason top 25:
1. North Carolina
With Tyler Hansbrough staying, without a doubt they are my favorites to win the championship. He will be in his senior this year and with the return of Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington they are the best team in the country.
6. Michigan State
7. Notre Dame
13. Arizona State
20. Virgina Tech
(If they got all of thier expected freshman they would be No. 6) and if Jerryd Bayless didn't leave and their freshman came they would be the favorite to win the championship
