Ha! Yeah, I did my own Top 25 rankings, and dropped some nice sleepers in there, too. I think that’s pretty self-explanatory:

1. Duke

— Best team ins the country — hands down. The defending national champs bring back two of their top three scorers from last year in guard Nolan Smith and forward Kyle Singler. Also returning are 6-foot-10 brothers Miles and Mason Plumlee, both of whom much is expected from, as well as guard sophomore guard Andre Dawkins, who should be improved with a year of experience under his belt. That alone would make Duke a formidable contender. Now throw in freshman guard Kyrie Irving — who’s drawn Jay Williams comparisons and could possibly the best PG in the country —  and junior Seth Curry, brother of Steph Curry — who’s now eligible after sitting out a year after transferring from Liberty — and you’re looking at a team that is, on paper, far and away the best team in the nation.
