University Basketball Rankings: Malachi Flynn Joins NBA Draft, San Diego State Slips into Top 25 and Top 1

0
100


Malachi Flynn was the star of the college basketball breakout team last season – a junior point guard who averaged 17.6 points, 5.1 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game for the state of San Diego, who finished 30-2 and placed sixth at KenPom. Understand, the Aztecs started 97th at KenPom. So they blew up all reasonable expectations. And Flynn was the most responsible player.

Now he’s gone.

The consensus of the second All-American team, which would have been a consensus of the first All-American preseason team if it had returned to the State of San Diego, announced Friday that it entered the draft of the NBA 2020 and renounced its last year of eligibility. This is undeniably a big blow for the Aztecs, who will now be deprived of three of the top five scorers of the squad that has just won the regular season title of the Mountain West Conference by five games. It’s such a damaging development, in fact, that I dropped San Diego State from 16th place in version 8.0 of the Top 25 and pre-season CBS Sports 2020-21 to version 9.0 of the Top 25 pre-season CBS Sports 2020-21 And 1.

Arkansas replaced the state of San Diego.

The Hogs standings depend on the return of Isaiah Joe.

As noted earlier, what I have done here is to assume that all consensus first round picks will go into the NBA project, make informed assumptions about the other subclasses, project relevant uncommitted perspectives – like Greg Brown, for example – to register where 247Sports currently plans allowing them to register and omitted all traditional transfers. Needless to say, when I have to settle, I will settle. Version 10.0 is probably around the corner. But, for now, Mark Few’s Gonzaga Bulldogs remain # 1 in the Top 25 and 1 based on the idea that anyone who can return from a team that finished 31-2 will return from a team that finished 31-2. If this happens, the Zags will be led by All-American Filip Petrusev, will have three of their top five goal scorers and will benefit from a top 10 recruiting class highlighted by 5-star guard Jalen Suggs.

(NOTE: For those who asked, right now Florida would be # 27, Indiana would be # 28, Louisville would be # 29, and Michigan would be # 30 if it was the Top 25 and 5.)
