randle The Sporting News' 2013-14 college basketball Top 25 is out and your University of Kentucky Wildcats sit atop the preseason rankings. Here's what Mike DeCourcy had to say about his No. 1 squad:
Archie Goodwin turned pro but Willie Cauley-Stein and Alex Poythress are back. Losing Goodwin is not without its costs, but what the Wildcats really needed in order for their overwhelming influx of young talent–the No. 1 prospect in the 2013 class at four of the five positions–to help the team confidently challenge for an NCAA championship was physical maturity in the frontcourt along with at least a hint of veteran leadership. And they’ve got that now.
The rest of the top ten: 2. Michigan State 3. Louisville 4. Duke 5. Arizona 6. Kansas 7. Michigan 8. Syracuse 9. North Carolina 10. Oklahoma State [The Sporting News: College Basketball Top 25]
