Kansas Sits Atop First Basketball AP Top 25

Kansas is the runaway choice for No. 1 in The Associated Press'
preseason college basketball poll.
The Jayhawks return all five starters and welcome one of the
country's top recruiting classes. They are coming off a 27-8 season
that ended in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
Kansas received 55 first-place votes Thursday from the 65-member
national media panel to easily outdistance Michigan State, which
was No. 1 on five ballots. The Spartans return seven of their top
nine scorers from last season's national runner-up squad.
Texas, Kentucky and Villanova round out the top five. North
Carolina, a unanimous preseason No. 1 last season that won the
national title, was sixth. Purdue, West Virginia, Duke and
Tennessee complete the top 10.
