Gary Parrish of CBS Sports unveiled his preseason Top 25. Same Big 12 cast of characters as the other Top 25s.
5. Kansas State: Frank Martin's incredible transformation from unknown assistant to marquee Big 12 coach will continue despite the loss of Denis Clemente. The return of Jacob Pullen, Curtis Kelly, Jamar Samuels, Dominique Sutton, Rodney McGruder and Wally Judge means six of KSU's top seven scorers are back, and FIU transfer Freddy Asprilla should make an immediate impact in the frontcourt.
8. Baylor: Ekpe Udoh's early departure will greatly affect Baylor's ability to frustrate opponents with a zone defense. But a duo of LaceDarius Dunn and McDonald's All-American Perry Jones should be electrifying enough to keep the Bears near the top of the Big 12.
12. Kansas: The roster got a boost from the commitment of Josh Selby, a high-flying guard who will be among the nation's most exciting players. Tyshawn Taylor, Tyrel Reed, Brady Morningstar and the Morris Twins will surround the likely one-and-done talent. Together, they'll keep the Jayhawks in the Big 12 hunt.
16. Missouri: Mike Anderson has shown he's capable of doing more with less thanks to a system that's as fun to watch as it is frustrating to play against. He adds a top 10 recruiting class to a core of Kim English, Marcus Denmon and Laurence Bowers. He should add another NCAA tournament appearance next March.
