Welcome back to College Basketball Daily, where we name the college basketball Players of the Day, every day from the opening tip (tomorrow, Monday, November 8) until the final whistle at the conclusion of the NCAA Tournament in early April.
As usual, we begin with our Preseason Top 25:
3. Kansas St.
6. Michigan State
13. North Carolina
15. Ohio State
17. Saint Mary's
25. Virginia Tech
On Monday, some of the top teams are in action, with Rhode Island prepared for a spanking at Pittsburgh, Illinois playing host to UC Irvine, Seattle at Maryland and Navy at Texas.
With no games Tuesday and Thursday, there are four more on Wednesday, but by Friday there's a full slate of games on tap. National Champion Duke gets its first taste of hardwood on Sunday, when they host Princeton at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
