There's a narrative that exists and suggests that "preseason rankings are worthless" in college basketball. But it's not actually true if the goal is to know in advance which teams are most likely to be really good.
Gary Parrish, Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello discuss Kentucky-North Carolina, why Syracuse's Tyler Ennis and Kansas' Joel Embiid were underrated recruits, the emergence of UCLA's Zach LaVine and get into some TV shows.
We are now just days away from the start of college basketball's regular season, and I realize you're probably so distracted by football that you haven't had a chance to comb through everybody's schedules to figure out when and where the best non-conference games will be played.
That's why I'm here.
