2012-13 NCAA College Basketball Preseason Rankings: Top 25
USA Today and ESPN released their NCAA Basketball 2012-13 preseason rankings today. Indiana is favored to win it all. The Hoosiers are joined by the Louisville Cardinals and last year’s champions, the Kentucky Wildcats, as the only schools receiving first-place votes.
According to USA Today, this poll, the “Coaches’ Poll” is voted on by “The USA TODAY/ESPN Board of Coaches, made up of 31 head coaches at Division I institutions.”
The Associated Press (AP) will release it’s preseason rankings before the end of October (last year it was October 28th).
I can’t believe it’s time for college basketball again. Seems like I just posted last season’s AP preseason poll.
Below, take a look at this season’s rankings, along with how they finished up in 2011-12.
