Men's Basketball preseason rankings

How the preseason Top 25 might look
Times reporters Bud Withers and Bob Condotta compile their early Top 25 for next season. Ohio State's Greg Oden and Texas' Kevin Durant are presumed to be early NBA entries, aside from those like Duke's Josh McRoberts who have already declared for the pros.
Team Comment
1. UCLA All you need is Love, and Kevin's coming
2. North Carolina Wright, Hansbrough returns might make them favorite
3. Kansas If Rush, Wright back, roster comes back intact
4. Memphis Starters in place, plus prep star G Derrick Rose
5. Tennessee 7 of top 8 back, including Chris Lofton
6. Georgetown Hibbert sounds like he's had enough college
7. USC Arrival of O.J. Mayo will stir pot; is Young staying?
8. Ohio State Was awfully good, even when Oden sat
9. Louisville Cardinals' late-season roll should continue
10. Marquette Team is back, but Crean could be swayed by Kentucky
11. Michigan State Adds 2 primo guard recruits to big nucleus
12. Washington State Something new for Cougars to handle: expectations
13. Indiana Prep A-A Gordon should contribute immediately
14. Texas Talented, but adjusting without Durant would be key
15. Duke Led by Kyle Singler, reinforcements on the way
16. Georgia Tech Might be second-best to Carolina in ACC
17. Stanford Lopezes will dominate, but can Goods play point?
18. Alabama If PG Steele is back, Tide should rebound
19. Texas A&M Law gone, but 6-10 recruit DeAndre Jordan softens blow
20. Oregon Dynamic of Brooks' departure will be interesting
21. Kansas State Touted F Michael Beasley joins Huggins show
22. Mississippi State Returns most of a 21-14 team
23. Georgia After the Harrick mess, Felton finally reaps rewards
24. New Mexico State Looks like Theus will be back for another year
25. Davidson Don't laugh; 29-5 in '07, and roster pretty much back
And keep an eye on: Arkansas, Auburn, Gonzaga, Southern Illinois, Washington.
