Dickie V loves these five teams heading into the college basketball season.
The 2017-18 college basketball season is still a few months away. However, with the latest developments of college stars either leaving for the NBA, or announcing their returns, now is a great time to talk about the upcoming season.
Kentucky lost three of its freshman stars from the 2016-17 season, but got a huge boost when Hamidou Diallo announced his plans to return to the team rather than enter the NBA.
That decision looks like it got Dickie V's attention. The longtime college basketball analyst released his preseason top-five.
Michigan State also received good news when Miles Bridges announced he would be returning for another season. Arizona, Kansas, and Louisville round out the top-five, meaning every major conference has a team on Dickie V's list.
