Memphis holds on to No. 1

The early-entry decisions affected a few teams in my Top 25, notably Georgetown and Marquette.

Still, it's hard to move Memphis. So in my fourth pre-preseason Top 25, the Tigers hold on to the top spot for the second time. (Florida was No. 1 immediately after the Final Four. Kansas moved up to No. 1 in a revised ranking nine days later. Memphis was No. 1 the first time after the NBA draft declaration deadline.) This should be the final pre-preseason ranking until the preseason edition in October/November.
