The fine folks over at Card Chronicle got their hands on USA Today's college basketball preview, and the paper has UConn in the No. 3 spot behind Syracuse and Pittsburgh. The full rankings are:
8. Notre Dame
10. West Virginia
11. St. John's
13. Seton Hall
14. South Florida

Notice anyone missing? Like you know, Jeremy Lamb? I don't have a problem with Gibbs as the POY, and I wouldn't even object to Lamb being a second teamer, but he has to make one of these lists, especially ahead of a headcase like Scoop Jardine.
