College basketball season is almost upon us, and with it this year comes preseason rankings high on the Oregon Ducks.
CBS Sports has released its top 25, which has Dana Altman’s team at No. 7:
The Ducks will likely start the season without Dillon Brooks, which means they'll likely start the season without their leading scorer from last season who is now recovering from foot surgery. But as long as he's back in time for Pac-12 play, Oregon should be the favorite to win the league for the second straight season.
Duke lands the top spot, followed by Kentucky, Kansas, Villanova, Xavier and North Carolina.
The other ranked Pac-12 teams are UCLA (No. 11), Arizona (13) and Cal (22).
