This Labor Day Weekend brings Athlon Sports, a college basketball preview magazine, dropped their preseason top 25 with Kentucky and Duke leading. Its not surprising that Kentucky has the top spot as they have a heavily talented freshman class.
North Carolina and Maryland are ranked in the 3rd and 4th slot, but the Blue Devils’ position is a bit unexpected.
Duke are the reigning national champs but they have lost their core four and are lacking depth on the court. Duke will have to rely on freshman, Derryck Thornton, at guard to lead them to another successful season.
With Coach K leading them again we will see how the No. 2 spot, Duke, will do against other teams that are leading the recruiting circuit.
