With the start of Kansas State men's basketball practice just weeks away, expectations for the upcoming season are at an all-time high with the release of several preseason top 25 and All-American teams. K-State has been listed in the top 10 in several preseason polls, including No. 4 by Lindy's Sports, No. 5 by Athlon Sports, No. 6 by The Sporting News and No. 10 by Blue Ribbon Yearbook. Each of the publications has the Wildcats predicted to finish in the top two of the Big 12, including Lindy's, which predicted the team to win the Big 12 crown in 2010-11.
