September, 25, 2013

The question at the heart of Insider's College Basketball Future Power Rankings project is simple: Which college hoops programs will have the most success over the next three seasons (2013-14, '14-15, '15-16)?
To come up with the answer, we had our panel of experts rate programs on a 1-to-10 scale in five different categories: Coaching, Current Talent, Recruiting, Program Power and Stability. We compiled the results and weighted the categories (for a more in-depth description of the category weighting and the methodology behind the rankings, see the inline at right or click here) to produce the top 25 rankings you see below.
Our panel: Paul Biancardi, Jay Bilas, Fran Fraschilla, John Gasaway, Jeff Goodman, Seth Greenberg, Andy Katz and Miles Simon. In addition to voting, each contributed to the team write-ups.
Here you have it -- our top 25 ranking of the teams best positioned for success over the next three seasons (including a surprise at the top, at No. 25 and at several spots in between). Click here to read the complete top 25 .
