A few things worth noting...
hjelp is the heavy preseason favorite, having a 47.8 point lead over # 2, davervinsucks. It is the largest point margin between any other ajoiningly-ranked players in the tournament.
The Big 12 and the Big East / AAC appear to be the conferences to beat, occupying 8 of the top 11 spots. The Big 12 has teams 4, 5, 6, & 7, while the Big East has teams 3, 8, 10, and 11 (as well as teams 16, 17, & 18, respectively). All together, they occupy 11 of the top 25 spots. Yikes.
Conversely, the ACC, Pac 12, and SEC have only 4 teams in the top 25; the Big 10 has only 2.
Stay tuned - games will begin soon!
