    Default Preseason rankings (basketball) OSU powers up

    Feel like not a lot of people actually click on the Basketball sub-forum so I am just putting this here. That is 4 B1G-10 teams in the Top 10. Could get interesting:

    1. Indiana
    2. Louisville
    3. Kentucky
    4. Kansas
    5. Michigan
    6. Baylor
    7. NC State
    8. Ohio State
    The Buckeyes have never disappointed under Thad Matta. This team is a consistent winner that is always near or at the top of the Big Ten and in title contention. Next season won't be any different. The big news from the past week wasn't losing Jared Sullinger. That was expected. But getting Deshaun Thomas to come back means they have a go-to scorer in the frontcourt, even if he likes to score more facing the basket. And the Buckeyes still have Aaron Craft doing all the things Aaron Craft does, and Lenzelle Smith Jr. and LaQuinton Ross are going to be studs.
    9. Florida
    10. Michigan St.
    11. North Carolina
    12. Syracuse
    13. UCLA
    14. Memphis
    15. Duke
    16. San Diego St.
    17. Arizona
    18. Creighton
    19. Notre Dame
    20. Gonzaga
    21. Texas
    22. Wisconsin
    23. UNLV
    24. Minnesota
    25. Missouri

    They have a description for each team if you would like to check it out.

    QRoss needs major minutes next year, probably even needs to start. This team is going to struggle to score big time.

    If Ross or Smith (or both) can pick up the slack and Thomas continues to score like he did this season (and especially in the tournament, up until the Final Four) then I honestly don't think scoring is going to be a huge problem. I think both of those guys need to average double digits in scoring, though. And as long as they remain as defensively sound as they were this year I think they are going to be a force to be reckoned with.

    That being said, I don't see a repeat Final Four appearance happening, but stranger things have happened.

    2013 will be Thad's big year. Don't care what people think but I think this team has the potential to be a top 5 team. I like this team better than the
    Ast two years teams.. Dst is a player of the ear candidate. Yes I said that.
