Early 2014-15 Polls ranking Villanova in top 15

Jared Wickerham

The 2013-14 NCAA Basketball season has ended, but basketball writers are already putting out their Top 25 for next season.

Of course these rankings will shift as transfers are announced and, more importantly, early NBA entries are declared. Here is the start.

Villanova is probably in the low double digit rankings. Seth Davis of SI and Rob Dauster of NBC Sports are the outliers; the former putting 'Nova at #4 and the latter placing the 'Cats at #18.

No other Big East team is noted in any of the rankings. What do you think?
