CBS College Basketball writer Gary Parrish says this will be one of the hardest years to come up with a preseason All-American list. While Parrish said there were many under consideration he did have Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell on his list of five.

Gary Parrish’s Preseason All-Americans

G Fred VanVleet Wichita St.
G Marcus Paige N. Carolina
G Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Arizona
F Montrezl Harrell Louisville
F Jahlil Okafor Duke

 

One thing I do agree on with Parrish is, there is a plethora of talent in College Basketball this season. What I don’t agree with is that all five of these guys have a possible replacement.

Can Louisville still get a #1 Seed?

The Cards finished their regular season yesterday and well………..they are good. With UC, Memphis, SMU, and UConn the Cards finished with about as hard a stretch as anyone in the country. Due to a coin flip we know the Cards will be the #2 seed in the AAC Tournament but where will they be in the NCAA? The one question everyone wants to know is can the Cards get a #1 seed still?

RPI ranking: 21 | Record: 26-5
Top 50 wins: 6 | Top 100 wins: 7

If they can add two more top-50 wins in the American tournament, they might have a shot at getting a No. 1 seed for the second straight season.

Regardless of the seed the Cards are looking like one of the favorites to be in Dallas but a 1 can’t hurt.
