Maryland basketball No. 1 in ESPN's preseason top 25
ESPN's Earmonn Brennan updated his preseason top 25 Wednesday morning, putting Maryland atop of his rankings with all of the off-season dust finally settled. He notes that with the return of Trimble and Layman, the addition of Rasheed Sulaimon, and having Robert Carter eligible, Mark Turgeon has assembled one of the nation's top rosters. North Carolina checks in at No. 2, potentially setting up an early season 1 vs. 2 showdown when the Terps travel to Chapel Hill for the B1G-ACC Challenge. Still hard to believe how far this team has come over the past 12 months.
