21. Xavier Musketeers
Expect a hot start for Travis Steele's team. The Musketeers are very experienced, bringing back four starters and adding two veteran transfers from the Mid-American Conference. Their early-season schedule also looks pretty attractive, opening with four straight home games before heading to the Charleston Classic -- where they will be favored to reach the title game (and likely face Florida). Their toughest true road game before Big East play will be at Wake Forest or TCU. This team should have plenty of momentum entering January.

Looked up every preseason ranking. I found 9 rankings and Xavier was in the top 25 in everyone from 15th to 25th
