Heels On Top Of AP Poll
So I'm feeling even better about myself now that the AP released its preseason Top 25 earlier today, and as I predicted last month in my own preseason rankings, North Carolina stands for now as the No. 1 team after receiving 1,728 votes, including 29 first-place tallies.
UCLA, with No. 1 recruit Kevin Love coming to Westwood, took second in the poll with a total of 1,710 votes (24 first-place votes), while Memphis, who returns four starters from last season's Elite Eight run, followed in third and received 18 first-place votes from the writers.
