The cheering fans and excitement filled air are only few of the things that come with NCAA basketball. The electric atmosphere in knowing your team could be knocked out in the next game. Coaches and teams trying to show what separates the good from the great.

The 2013- 2014 NCAA men’s basketball season is highly anticipated by its fans and spectators.

All around college fan, Dan Geary, Freshman, said, “I’m a fan of college basketball because of the intensity of every game and knowing every game counts.”

There are many high valued high school prospects making there way to colleges across the country this year. Teams like the University of Duke, Kentucky and Kansas should have a very respectable recruiting class due to verbal commitments from top prospects and already signed players according to ESPN’s Top 100. ESPN’s number one ranked high school prospect has interest in all three of these schools including Baylor so his decision could put these teams way ahead.

“They’re led by the best coach in the nation,” said Geary when talking about the Duke Blue Devils, “ he knows what to do and how to do it.”

The Blue Devils and Coach K are hoping to make a National Championship run this year after falling short in the Elite Eight to the Louisville Cardinals. They definitely have the potential because of their outing last year, if they can bring in players along with Grayson Allen, shooting guard from Jacksonville, Fla., who is already committed.

Overall the Blue Devils have a pretty fair shot at the title because of so many returners from last season. On the other hand, losing starting point guard, Austin Rivers, could set them back.

Geary said, “We’re alright we’ve been there for years.”

Another team who college basketball should always look out for are the University Of Kansas Jayhawks. Led by Coach Bill Self, AP coach of the year and Naismith College coach of the year, will always make this team great. Self has made a great deal of appearances to the big tourney with two Final Four appearances and even a National Championship in 2008.

After being knocked out by Michigan last season, die hard fan, Connor Lee said, “It’s okay, Self will bring us home next season.”

He said that he’s never worried about Coach Self getting them there, only at how the team will perform down the stretch.Lee also said that the Jayhawks have too much talent carrying over from last year not to be a threat this season. Ben McLemore averaged 15.9 points per game last year at KU according to ESPN’s team statistics and since McLemore left for the NBA, that takes away almost 16 points per game.

A key fit to replace McLemore could be Andrew Wiggins standing at 6 ft 8 in, his size should make him a threat in the paint. He also averaged 23.4 points per game and 11.3 rebounds per game.

Fans can’t forget about the perennial powerhouse Kentucky Wildcats. This year the ‘Cats had one of the best recruiting class according to ESPN insider and even some interest from the number one center Jahlil Okafor out of Chicago, Illinois. Last year’s season doesn’t completely reflect the team that they had because of so many young players.

Lee also said, “ Kentucky has good chances and huge possibilities because of Calipari’s ability to recruit.”

This year should be very exciting since lots of the NCAA’s best players last year entered the NBA this year. And with a lot of new faces coming in to every team this season, many teams should be on the rise.
