Michigan is ranked 19th after a national runner-up finish to Villanova last season, and Purdue is 24th in the preseason ranking, after a sweet 16 loss to Texas Tech in March. Kansas is the preseason number one, with Kentucky at two and Gonzaga at three. Duke and Virginia round out the top five, with Tennessee, Nevada, North Carolina and Villanova making up the second five – before Michigan State at #10.
