The Associated Press put together their preseason top 25 college basketball teams earlier today and the Oregon Ducks landed in the #15 spot with a total of 742 points. The only other PAC-12 team that was listed in the poll was the #21 Arizona Wildcats. The Washington Huskies, Colorado Buffaloes, and USC Trojans received votes but didn’t make the cut.
Last season, Oregon was picked #14 in the AP preseason poll. This is Oregon’s sixth all-time appearance in the AP preseason poll.
