Five SEC Squads Make Vitale’s 2012-13 Top 40

Ready for a pre-preseason poll?  Dick Vitale is.  ESPN’s longtime basketball analyst released his Top 40 basketball teams for next season yesterday afternoon.  Five Southeastern Conference teams make an appearance:


2.  Kentucky:  ”John Calipari simply reloads as Big Blue Nation welcomes Nerlens Noel and the top class in America.”  (Cat fans probably won’t like the fact that Vitale has UK #2 behind Rick Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals.)

19.  Florida:  ”The Gators would be higher if Bradley Beal returned to school.”

24.  Missouri:  ”Frank Haith has a ton of talented transfers coming in. The addition of Alex Oriakhi is a big plus.”

28.  Alabama:  ”Last season’s issues will turn into a surprising plus. A number of youngsters got better with more playing time.”

33.  Tennessee:  ”The Vols really bought into Cuonzo Martin’s system and it paid off late last season.”
