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.

2007 NCAA Tournamenet: All Elite-Eight Team

March 26th, 2007
Georgetown

Best Performance: Greg Oden, Ohio State

One can only imagine Coach John Calipari’s reaction.

Trying to get ready for his Elite Eight showdown with the #1 team in the country, a team on a 20 game winning streak, he opens up the newspaper or turns on the TV and discovers what his star forward Joey Dorsey had been saying about his match-up with Greg Oden:

"I'm going to have a 20-rebound night.."

"I'm Goliath… he's the little man."
