CHN Preseason Top 50: 2nd Edition

June 23rd, 2007

Now that players have finalized their NBA plans.. its time to take another shot at the offseason Top 50. My last attempt was April 9th, and besides the Draft decisions, there were also a few coaching changes and player defections that change things as well.

I've left the original comments from April intact but added notes on changes since then in parentheses.

Early Preseason Top 50

April 9th, 2007

1. UCLA - Back to back Final Four trips could yield championship if Afflalo returns.
2. Kansas - Even if one of Rush or Wright go pro, this is a top 5 team.. but there's a good chance they wont win it all.
3. North Carolina - This assumes Wright is gone but Hansbrough returns. This team is still loaded regardless.
4. Memphis - Even without Derrick Rose, Calipari's squad is primed for a Final Four run.
5. Louisville - With continued improvement from Derrick Caracter, there's no limit to the Cards success.

The CHN Top 50 Power Ranking is our weekly ordering of the national picture.  Is the Top 50 Better than the AP or the Coaches Polls?

The CHN Top 50 is brought to you before everybody else on Sunday night!
