Composite 2012 NCAA basketball preseason rankings

Rob Carr

Here is a composite rankings between the AP, Coaches, KenPom and Dan Hanner.

SB Nation's Gonzaga blog, The Slipper Still Fits put together the composite preseason rankings from the AP, Coaches, KenPom and Dan Hanner preseason rankings. There are some surprises from KenPol and Hanner. Before we get to those, the four rankings are in agreement of where UNLV should be ranked, and the average has them at No. 16.

The surprise is that New Mexico comes in at No. 24 and San Diego State is 25. KenPom likes New Mexico at 21 and Hanner places them at 15, whereas the AP and coaches poll do not have New Mexico ranked. While San Diego State is not ranked by KenPom or Hanner.

Here are the composite rankings:
