Sporting News picks Louisville third

A sure sign that sportswriters are tired of writing about conference realignment.

Making pre-season college basketball top 10 predictions as summer nears.

The Sporting News has picked the University of Louisville as the third ranked team in the nation next season. No indication of whether that’s at the end or the beginning of the season.

U of L is ranked behind Indiana and UCLA, first and second, respectively. Ohio State is fourth and Kentucky fifth (even though UK lost five players in the draft?).

Michigan is sixth, North Carolina State seventh, Duke eighth, Syracuse ninth and Arizona tenth.
