2016-17 College Basketball Season: The Spun Staff Predictions

The Spun's Staff makes their picks.

The 2016-17 college basketball season begins tomorrow. Pretty soon March Madness will be here.

No, we're not trying to rush the season away, but we are excited about what is ahead. There are several loaded teams in college hoops this season, as well as a number of squads brimming with the potential to make the leap from good to great, like defending champion Villanova did last year.

With the season about to tip off, we here at The Spun decided to forecast how we anticipate it will unfold. We went ahead and picked the winners of the Power 5 conferences, our Final Four participants, and the national champion.

Check out our full predictions below:
