Basketball Preview

College basketball season starts soon. In fact, Duke beat Drury today. Last night in an exhibition game, Kentucky beat Transylvania, a small college here in Lexington.

Kentucky is ranked #1 in both the AP and USA Today/ESPN polls. Michigan State, Louisville and Duke all got first-place votes as well. Ohio State is 11th in the AP, 10th in USA Today/ESPN. With Michigan ranked higher, the pollsters expect the Buckeyes to finish third in the Big Ten.

On the women’s side, Connecticut, winner of eight national championships, is nearly the consensus #1. Kentucky is #7 in the AP, and #8 in the USA Today Coaches poll. Ohio State is unranked under new coach Kevin McGuff, and will be rebuilding this year.
