    Don't know if this COLLEGE HOOPS PRE-SEASON TOP 25 was posted anywhere else. I almost posted it the other day.

    Thought it made sense to put it here since it was also from NBC Sports. X gets talked about a bit at the 45:47 mark of podcast (for those who do not want to listen to the entire podcast) which is found bellow #2 Kentucky on the page.

    Thanks for the fast forwarding stuff! Does sound most understand what we have returning as a team and now have legitimate back up vs last year. Also, seems like some think Steele finally got his legs underneath him towards end of season. From a coaching perspective, should be an interesting development to watch this year.

    Just wish he knew how to pronounce Kyky’s name. Guess it’s a Xggsvier thing?

    To be honest, I'm not surprised, if you think about All-Americans and what it takes for someone to have that accolade, it's pretty tough, our last All-American was Tu if I remember correctly right? Coming off a 19.7 ppg, 5.4 apg, and 1.4 spg season. We know how talented Naji is, and we know how high his ceiling is, I genuinely do believe Naji can be an All-American at the end of the season, but there were stretches throughout last season he wasn't at that caliber. I do think he's going to have a monster year for us, but I can totally understand how he's not an All-American, now All-Big East is kind of another story

    There is a loose interpretation of an "all american"

    David West won some versions of Player of the Year vs I believe TJ Ford.

    Tu might have been honorable mention. 4Trevon was 3rd team .

    Please correct my errors if at all.

    That was a little funny to hear- "KI-KI Tandy has a chance to be really good."

    I don't know how long beyond the Xavier mention on the podcast you listened, but I found odd a little later when talking about All Americans (at the 102:51 mark) the same guy mentions X and seems like he is about to mention Naji as a sleeper pick for All-American when the other dude (Rob) cuts him off and it never gets brought up again.

    The weird thing is that reags is from Kentucky and I think still lives in cincy although maybe he’s moved after getting full time at barstool. Still you’d think he would’ve been exposed to kyky a little more.

    D west won every player of the year award except the wooden I think. That’s the only poy award ford won instead of west. Kinda wild.

    Tu was a third teamer I think and Trevon made the second team
