Dick Vitale Names His Preseason Top 4

Dick Vitale breaks down the 2018 NCAA Tournament bracket.

The NBA draft is in the books and the top talent that left the college ranks is getting their first action during the Summer League. Meanwhile, their former college teams are gearing up for a new season.

Everyone's favorite analyst, Dick Vitale, recently revealed his top four college basketball teams heading into the 2018-19 season.

The ESPN college basketball analyst says he'll be going with Kansas at No. 1. However, it was a close race between No. 1 and No. 2 for Dickie V.

Here's the top four:

  1. Kansas
  2. Kentucky
  3. Tennessee
  4. Duke

Here's his response to Gary Parrish where he revealed his rankings.

Three blue bloods should come as no surprise, but Dickie V likes the Volunteers this year. Tennessee found success in Bruce Pearl's fourth season with the team, so there's no reason to think the Volunteers can replicate that for the upcoming season.

It's a loaded top four from Dickie V. He explained why Kansas holds the edge over Kentucky: "Gary to me the experience / depth , size with multiple versatile PTPers gives [Kansas] the little edge over [Kentucky]."

Still, the Jayhawks are going to be loaded and a popular preseason No. 1 pick. Kansas brings in multiple five-star recruits and has some extreme talent coming back.
