UConn men’s basketball ranked No. 24 in AP Preseason Poll

The Associated Press released its annual preseason poll Monday, with UConn men’s basketball coming in at No. 24, receiving 161 votes. Gonzaga ranks No. 1 after receiving 55 of 63 possible No. 1 votes.

This marks the first time UConn has been ranked in the AP Preseason Poll since 2016, when the Huskies were No. 18. That team went on to finish 16-17 in a season that was Kevin Ollie’s second-to-last as head coach.

The Huskies join Villanova (No. 4) as the only Big East schools ranked in the preseason AP Poll.
