With the NBA possibly missing its entire season, the only basketball we're guaranteed to see next season are of the college kind.
This college season is shaping to be one of the best in years, with many top players electing to return, an impressive collection of recruits arriving and some of the top teams last season losing few of its core.
Grabbing one of the top four overall seeds for the NCAA tournament is obviously not an easy task. In order to accomplish such a feat, mid-major teams can lose maybe one or two games, while the FBS schools can probably get away with four or five losses.
This means there can be no growing pains; these teams must be incredibly consistent from game one to game 35.
Keep in mind that top seeds don't equal championships or even Final Four appearances, so this is not a list of favorites to win it all, though certainly, most teams that will be mentioned are viewed as the favorites.
The list is in reverse order, and No. 4 should surprise everyone.
