MOVING UP: Andy Katz's most improved teams this season

Five of the eight teams were in Andy Katz's preseason Power 36 rankings, with another under consideration. Here's where they were slotted:

  • 2. Gonzaga: Drew Timme will be a leading contender for national player of the year.  
  • 9. Duke: Jon Scheyer has the best recruiting class in the country.
  • 21. Florida: Colin Castleton and Kyle Lofton will make matchups difficult for SEC opponents. 
  • 22. Purdue: Zach Edey has the middle to himself and that could spell trouble for foes. 
  • 33. Xavier: Sean Miller will have the Musketeers back where they belong — in the NCAA tournament.
  • West Virginia: Under consideration
