Hope & Rauf presented by Heat Check CBB: Brian and Connor break down the preseason AP college basketball top 25 that was released on Monday. Who is ranked too high and who is ranked too low? UCLA, Illinois, and Maryland’s respective rankings lead that discussion.

Then they get into previewing both the West Coast Conference and Mountain West Conference. Gonzaga – preseason #1 for the second straight year – will have to deal with an improved WCC that could send three or more teams to the NCAA Tournament. The same could be said for the Mountain West with Colorado State, Nevada, and San Diego State all expected to be formidable.

What are Brian and Connor’s bold predictions for both the WCC and MW? Find out in the latest episode of Hope & Rauf presented by Heat Check CBB!
