The college basketball season is going to provide us with unique freshman talent, a re-emergence of blueblood powerhouses, the best parade of big men the sport's seen in a decade, a Gonzaga team that's good enough to finish what last year's group couldn't, the send-off season of Mike Krzyzewski, the first FULL season of games in two years, a stream of surprises and another or-so fun storylines that will emerge over the next six months. But before we can get to that, we've got to wrap up the business at hand. It's time to take the cover off the top of my rankings.

Below you will find the 68 projected best teams in men's college basketball in Whereas the first Looking for top guy fun installments went from ranking the better teams at the top and worked their way down, we're going to flip this and do a true countdown here, starting with No. Without further ado! San Francisco : Let's get this rolling with a small surprise. It's a backcourt duo that could realistically combine to average 40 points, 10 boards and eight assists, thus giving USF its best team this century.

If Golden's guys can tighten up their defense, they'll have an outside shot at making their first NCAA Tournament since UCF : Johnny Dawkins' team deserves a tad more attention than it has received. UCF also ended the season with a record. The middle was murky, which is why UCF ended with an mark.

But C. WalkerDarius Perry and Brandon Mahan are the key three for a team that has the coaching capability and the nucleus to finish in the top four of the American Athletic Conference.

The Billikens were a No. Its ceiling is that of a double-digit seed Pause here. Look away, think, then come back. I know. It's kind of wild. Know that Brad Brownell handled last season well and beyond expectation. One reason was his change in 3-point philosophy. The Tigers are 31st in 3-point rate the past two seasons per KenPomyet in his prior 17 seasons the teams he coached averagedand it's even lower if you only take his Clemson career into. Cheers to adaptability. No Aamir Simms means Clemson will launch away all the more.

Do I hear 30 treys a game? Georgia Tech : I will put some respect on Josh Pastner's name in this capsule. Reminder: Pastner is the Ted Lasso of college hoops. Though these next two aren't as collectively big and small as Wright and Alvarado were, the new dynamic duo Pastner will rely upon is guard Michael Devoe and forward Jordan Usher.

Also: Bubba Parham hasn't popped since transferring from VMI two seasons ago, but the bonus year allows him to fulfill his potential. Creighton : A Sweet 16 team in March, the Bluejays can't avoid dropping back in the herd. Greg McDermott's team is one of just a handful in the power conferences that does not return a starter. This squad is going to be three Ryans and Rati: Ryan Hawkins, Ryan Kalkbrenner and Ryan Nembhard will contribute behind anticipated top scorer Rati Andronikashvili, a Georgian-born combo guard who missed last season due to a knee injury.

I'm interested to see how much McDermott can tweak and rejig his program in the months ahead. Colorado : If I gave you 12 guesses as to which school has the No. Guess what: It's No. The Buffs have the No. So the future is bright. Also, CU lost one of those incoming freshmen for the year because of hip surgery. Evan Batteythe big man with the big heart, will be the spiritual center for the Buffs. With an assist rate of The Mustangs managed only 17 games in ', going Now Looking for top guy fun Jankovich has eight new bodies.

Projecting this group based off ball from eight months ago is hard. I think making the NIT is the floor, though. Jeenathan Williams Mballa is one of the best rebounders in America and Williams is considered the dude of all dudes in that league. Quiet, determined, takes no BS. Segu does just enough to set up the other two for success while still getting his own. The Bulls are not anticipated to be a deep team, but so long as they're healthy they'll wind up being one of the toughest, most physically challenging opponents for every team they play this season.

Iowa : Jordan Bohannon comes back for the bonus year, and Iowa will need him to be better than ever, but it's going to be Keegan Murray who will be the breakout player in Iowa City, Iowa. The Hawkeyes have the unenviable task of having to replace the best player in school history Luka Garza. There's … no … really … doing that. This team was a No. Hey, at least the football team might make the CFP! Utah State : Ryan Odom made a life change that pretty much only a person in coaching would undertake: he moved from Baltimore to Logan, Utah.

Now he takes over a program that was revived for all three seasons under Craig Smith. Fortunately, Odom will inherit one of Smith's guys -- and one of the best players in the Mountain West: Justin Bean He'll be set up by Utah point guard transfer Rylan Joneswho should fit brilliantly in Odom's offense.

Don't think they'll break through, but the NIT is always a win at Northwestern. Chris Collins is in his ninth season and has a group Looking for top guy fun primary minutes-getters almost entirely composed of juniors and seniors.

Maybe the best of the bunch doubles as one of the five best names in the sport for Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back Boo Buie! If Bennett wasn't so insistent on winning games in the mids, SMC would have a chance to have five guys averaging double figures. The formula works, though: the Gaels were No. Providence : Ed Cooley normally doesn't build his teams around an interior, bruising player, but that will be the case with center Nate Watson. Here's an early tip: Watson is one of the five best players in the Big East. He'll be helped by key returnee A.

There are eight new faces in Providence, with Indiana transfer Al Durham expected to be a big-time Friar within the first few weeks of the season. Nevada : This remains a program thriving off the transfer market.

Credit to Steve Alford, who was bequeathed a good situation a few years ago via Eric Musselman and hasn't let the Wolf Pack drift. The Mountain West will have a small chance of being a four-bid league this season, and if that's a possibility come March, Nevada should be in that quartet. Wisconsin : It's been a bumpy offseason for Wisconsin.

Former assistant and former really good player Alando Tucker left the program after good local reporting revealed some not all that unusual internal strife with some players and coach Greg Gard. This looks like a transition season five frosh, three transfersbut a reminder to the skeptics uh, that now includes me?

Brad Davison 's something of an enemy in the Big Ten, but although he's the most well known player, Jonathan Davis is Wisconsin's best. Chucky Hepburn is the future. The freshman point guard is likely to start from the get-go.

Washington State : With the football program in a bit of a mess, now's the time for Wazzu hoops to have its best season in more than a decade. It's taken Kyle Smith three seasons; I'd say that's a year ahead of schedule, considering the gig and all the challenges WSU presents. I'd have the Cougars top if not for the loss of Isaac Bonton. Still, there's a flashy new freshman, Mouhame Gueye, and a quality default scorer in South Alabama transfer Michael Flowers.

Junior wing Noah Williams should take a jump in efficiency, which will be what gets the Cougars into the top half of a competitive Pac The team was fortunate enough to play 33 games last season, which was more than almost any other in college basketball.

That will have a carryover effect. Then there's the incoming batch of transfers, the reason Mississippi State enters this season with more optimism than it's had in almost a decade. It's been a good while since the Bulldogs were interesting.

You can no longer hold that against them. Notre Dame : Can this season mark the end of the worst four-year run of Mike Brey's tenure with the Irish?
