Lindy’s, one of the most respected college basketball publications out there, is about to release their pre-season guide and Kentucky comes in at No. 5 in the rankings.
The defending national champs are rated behind rivals Louisville (No. 1) and Indiana (No. 2). Michigan and N.C. State, who both boast stellar recruiting classes and elite returning players, are Nos. 3 and 4, respectively.
The rest of the top 10: No. 6 Ohio State, No. 7 Duke, No. 8 Creighton, No. 9. St. Louis and No. 10 UCLA.
The magazine should hit newsstands Tuesday.
