The 2020-21 NCAA basketball season begins in just two weeks, and ends with an AP poll. Gonzaga is number one in the preseason rankings, followed by Baylor No. 2 and Vilenova No. 3. The Bulldogs brought back Joel Aye and Corey Kispert, ending 31-2 in the short season of the 2020 epidemic. Gonzaga is not withdrawing his short non-conference schedule as he will face No. 6 Kansas, Uburn, No. 2 Baylor and No. 5 Iowa before starting play at the West Coast Conference.
The ruling NCAA Champion Virginia Cavaliers starts the season at No. 4, and Iowa checks at No. 5, with the Big Ten leading all conferences with seven ranked teams, followed by the Big 12 with five and the ACC with four.
Kansas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Dick and Kentucky are ranked 6-10, respectively.
Houston is the only representative of the AAC, and the No. 18 Arizona State PAC-12 teams are naked – No. 20 Oregon and No. 22 UCLA – are second – in the preliminary rankings. Despite a 26-11 upset in 2019-20, North Carolina’s Tar Heels is poised to return to No. 16.
