Sporting News announces Missouri as the No. 10 NCAAB team

From the University of Missouri

Missouri's men's basketball team has been named the number 10 NCAAB team within SN's Pre-season Top 25, presented by Gillette Odor Shield.

Coach Frank Haith has assembled what might be the best transfer class ever, headlined by center Alex Oriakhi.  How this group comes together will determine whether the Tigers make a deep run into the NCAA Tournament or struggle through an uneven season.

Sporting News' College Basketball awards are decided on by the Sporting News editorial staff in consultation with coaches and scouts around the country.
