2 lists for next year

One is Andy Katz way early top 25. I would include it here, except there's no mention whatsoever of Kansas. Indeed a young and unproven UConn Huskies squad is number 1, even though they lose Charlie Villanueva. Count me among those who aren't concerned about a lack of love from the national media. Preseason polls don't matter and after this year, Bill Self deserves a year to coach with lowered expectations. I will be surprised if we're not in the Top 25 in February.

Also, the Parade All-America Teams were announced today. Julian Wright is 2nd team, Mario Chalmers 3rd team and Micah Downs 4th team. Note that the list also includes underclassmen.
