The preseason college basketball coaches poll is out and a panel of 32 Division I head coaches believe Kentucky is the fourth best team in the country. First is Duke (predictably), followed by Kansas and Villanova. Despite the #4 ranking, it’s worth noting that Kentucky did receive two first-place votes, the second most of any team on the list.
