Seven programs have advanced to the Final Four on double-digit occasions in the history of the tournament.
They are: Duke (16 times), Kansas (14), Kentucky (17), Louisville (10), North Carolina (19), Ohio State (11) and UCLA (18).
Five of those teams are in our Top 10 this preseason.
Another, Louisville, is No.11.
Of the seven, only Ohio State is excluded from our poll vote.
That may not sound like very courageous picking, and it's not.
But it is usually correct, and odds are it will be again this time around.
And isn't getting it right the idea, after all?
Here is our Associated Press preseason Top 25.
Enjoy the next six months.
