Preseason Metro Ranking
We’ve covered the preseason All-Americans, Final Four picks and individual team previews. Now it’s time for the fun stuff – the guys who make college basketball so fun to watch. Let the debates begin:
Eugene Spates led four Northeastern players in double-digits with 14 points and preseason All-Colonial pick Matt Janning added 13 points.

It’s not just the under-the-radar high school prospects that end up playing their college ball at non-BCS schools nowadays. 15 out of Rivals.com’s top 150 prospects for 2008 committed to non-BCS schools. Add to that the 18 players from the year before and you’ve got a serious influx of talent for the Davids to help fight off the Goliaths.
