We've reached the number one spot in my preseason rankings. The Duke Blue Devils sit at the top after bringing in an amazing recruiting class. Coach K is still the best in the business, and he knows how to win with both veterans and underclassmen.

Kyle Hunter's 2016 College Basketball Top 25: #3 Kansas Jayhawks

Rock Chalk, Jayhawk! It's one of the better chants in college basketball, and the Kansas Jayhawks come in at number three in my preseason rankings. This Kansas team is going to look a whole lot different than last year's version, but once again they will be extremely good.

Kyle Hunter's 2016 College Basketball Top 25: #4 Oregon Ducks

Oregon hasn't been known as a top notch college hoops program like the rest of my top five, but Dana Altman is doing a great job building up this program. Altman has been named Pac 12 Coach of the Year in three of the last four seasons. Will this be the year they get to the Final Four?

Kyle Hunter's 2016 College Basketball Top 25: #5 Kentucky Wildcats

As they always do, Kentucky lost a bunch of talent to the NBA, but they brought in another great recruiting class. Rinse and repeat.

Kyle Hunter's 2016 College Basketball Top 25: #6 Virginia Cavaliers

it's good to remember that Virginia is 89-19 in the last three years. The Cavaliers are a national power. I don't think that changes anytime soon. Can Virginia make a Final Four run this year? Let's take a closer look.

Kyle Hunter's 2016 College Basketball Top 25: #7 Wisconsin Badgers

This will be the only team preview in my Top 25 where I can say they had no key losses. Wisconsin returns everyone from last year's team. This is obviously one of the big reasons they are ranked so highly.

Kyle Hunter's 2016 College Basketball Top 25: #9 Xavier Musketeers

The Musketeers have been a young team the last couple years, but now it is time to win. Xavier is no longer the young team who has a bright future, rather this is the team who is built to win now. Can they do it?

Kyle Hunter's 2016 College Basketball Top 25: #10 Arizona Wildcats

Sean Miller's Arizona Wildcats are #10 in my preseason rankings. Miller has a 188-61 record in seven years at Arizona. Still, Miller manages to catch heat in a few circles since he hasn't been to the Final Four with the Wildcats.

Miami (FL) at Duke College Basketball Pick, Odds & Prediction

21st January 2017 by Adam Burke

This is an important game for both teams. Miami has a chance to grab a signature win in a hostile road environment and Duke has a chance to get back on track after consecutive losses to Florida State and Louisville. The Blue Devils should be able to do that as a 9.5-point favorite with a total in the low 140s.
