Hope & Rauf presented by Heat Check CBB: Connor and Brian are joined by Jeff Goodman of Stadium and The Field of 68 to discuss the top college basketball teams in the country going into the 2022-23 season.

Gonzaga, Houston, and North Carolina seem to be the consensus top three at the moment. Who should be #1, and what has to happen for each to live up to expectations? Then the trio discuss teams outside that top tier who are the most equipped to break into that group.

Finally, Connor and Brian break down the entire HeatCheckCBB Way-too-early top 25, including a look at why San Diego State may actually be underrated at #15.
