Hard to believe but we are rapidly approaching college basketball season. The USC Trojans do not tip off until Friday, November 11th, when they host Montana but the Coaches Poll has just released their preseason rankings. The Trojans are on the outside looking in as they are not in the preseason top 25 but are in the top 40.
In total eight of the 12 teams in the Pac-12 show up in the poll with the Oregon Ducks coming in at 5th and Arizona ranked 11th. UCLA is ranked 20th despite being dreadful last season. The Cal Bears are just outside the top 25 at 28th. The Colorado Buffaloes were just behind USC, with Washington and Utah also receiving votes. You can see the full poll below.
