College basketball is right around the corner; if you're not excited, then you need to check your college hoops pulse.
There have been so many dominating freshmen that are returning to their respective teams, making this year a very special one in college basketball.
There will be plenty of great teams, and a good amount of good teams. Every game will determine each team's fate come March.
Speaking of March, this year's NCAA tourney should be one of the most exciting. Instead of one team dominating, there will be many teams with the ability to take home the prize.
Carolina and Kentucky are the front-runners to win it all this year, and should have a combined nine players taken in the first round with five possible lottery picks in the 2012 draft.
This year's draft class (unlike last year's) will be stacked full of talent at each position, and it will be one of the best and deepest draft classes the NBA has seen in a while.
