Big 12 Preseason Poll: 1.  Kansas got all 9 first-place votes, then it gets interesting. 2.  West Virginia 3. Texas 4. Iowa State 5. Baylor 6. Oklahoma T7. Oklahoma State T7. Texas Tech 9, Kansas State 10. TCU. I'm a bit worried about Texas' point guard situation and have them lower.

No-Longer-Way-Too-Early Top 25 in college hoops

College basketball season is about a month away. So it's no longer "too early" to determine the best of the best. Argue all you want about Nos. 2-24, but No. 1 remains a no-brainer: Hello, Duke.

Philly coach Brett Brown made it clear after Joel Embiid's debut last night that he wants the skilled big man to do more work in the post moving forward -- rather than relying on his perimeter game so much. The difficult thing for Embiid is that he can score in so many different ways, and right now it's easier for him -- while shaking the rust off -- to take turnaround jumpers and perimeter shots. Crazy thing was that Brad Stevens actually double-teamed Embiid last night in the second quarter.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Joel Embiid's final line in his first game in 948 days: six points, four rebounds and two blocks in 13 minutes -- all in the first half. He was on a minutes restriction. Embiid obviously still rusty, but he showed flashes of a guy who could be an All-Star -- IF he stays healthy. Can score in so many different ways, at all three levels, and is also a major factor on the defensive end with his ability to alter and block shots.

Joel Embiid on his emotions -- and whether Brett Brown gave him the green light to shoot 3's -- just a few hours before finally making his NBA debut.

Joel Embiid out here drilling 3's before his return tonight. Will play his first game since Kansas. Guy is so, so skilled.
