Men's Basketball Coaches Poll

It's the ninth consecutive season under head coach John Calipari that Kentucky will begin the season ranked among the top 25 teams in the country, as voted on by a panel of Division I head coaches in consultation with the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

On Thursday afternoon, USA TODAY Sports formally released its preseason Coaches Poll as just a few weeks remain until the start of the 2017-18 college basketball season.

WSU's last preseason top-10 appearance in a Coaches Poll came prior to the 1981-82 season. It's the eighth time that United Kingdom has been in the top five during that span. No. 1 gets 25 points, No. 2 gets 24 and so on. Joining the Wildcats in the top five were No. 1 Duke, No. 2 Michigan State, No. 3 Kansas and No. 5 Arizona.

The Tide, which finished 19-15 last season, also returns its top-two leading scorers from a year ago in sophomore guard Dazon Ingram (10.6 points per game) and sophomore wing Braxton Key (12 ppg), along with 6-foot-9 junior center Donta Hall. Diallo was named to the preseason All-Southeastern Conference First Team on Wednesday while freshman forward Kevin Knox was tabbed to the second team. Rounding out the Top 10 are Villanova, Florida, Wichita State, North Carolina and West Virginia.

Duke led five teams in the poll from the Atlantic Coast Conference, including No. 16 Louisville. The Blue Devils boasted the nation's number one recruiting class, which was headlined by top-ranked overall prospect Marvin Bagley III.
