The 2017-18 men's college basketball season isn't over yet. We still have three more games to play.

It's already time to start looking ahead to 2018-19, though.

Who are going to be the country's top teams?

Noted statistical guru Ken Pomeroy has released his initial top 10 (it's actually a top 11) for the 2018-19 season. His projections assume everyone in the top 40 of DraftExpress' NBA Draft rankings will leave school.

The rankings also take into account the top freshmen and transfers.

Here it is:

  1. Kansas
  2. Duke
  3. Villanova
  4. Auburn
  5. Kentucky
  6. UNC
  7. Nevada
  8. West Virginia
  9. Gonzaga
  10. Virginia
  11. Maryland

Two of these teams are still alive in the 2017-18 season.

Kansas and Villanova are set to meet in the Final Four on Saturday night. The winner of the game between the Jayhawks and Wildcats will play the winner of Michigan-Loyola in the national title game.

Who do you like next season?
