The 2022-23 college basketball season tips off on Monday, November 7, though you’ll have to wait a few days for the first big clash (Gonzaga vs. Michigan State on November 11).  Below is Hoops Prospects’ preseason top 60 teams for the upcoming season, with brief descriptions for the top 25.

In the chart below, we have tallied the number of prospects on the HP Draft Board for each team, grouping the players by ranking.  For example, UNC has a total of 11 prospects on our draft board, starting with two being ranked between 26 and 50.  We have also included the teams’ rankings in both the preseason AP and Coaches’ polls.

For more in-depth analysis, listen to our special two-part episode of the Hoops Prospects Podcast. In episodes S02-E05 and S02-E06, we detail, HP’s preseason top 25, discuss possible breakthrough teams, and make our predictions for the season:  the Final Four, the National Champ, the Player of the Year, the Freshman of the Year, and the Coach of the Year.
