Preseason Top 25 rankings released in Episode One of the CCR Podcast

Miles Bridges and the Michigan State Spartans topped a pair of our Preseason Top 25 Rankings.

CANMORE, Alta. — August 1st marks the start of a fresh month, which means a fresh start for many things in this world.

It also marked the launch of the CCR Podcast, powered by College Court Report.

Nico Wright, Ryan Scarfone, and myself, Tyler Bennett, took an introductory approach to the inaugural episode of the podcast. We each recorded our own introductions, providing insight into our basketball experiences to date, while also touching on how we all came together to launch the podcast.

Admittedly, it didn’t come without some hiccups and some wrinkles that need to be ironed out over the coming weeks. Some names were pronounced incorrectly, while the volume on some parts were higher than others. It all comes with unfamiliar territory.

However, we are fully committed to providing listeners with a high-quality product that is insightful and engaging.

At the end of our intros, we all released our Preseason Top 25 Rankings. There were some surprises along the way, but there were several teams that were constant across the board.

Here are our Preseason Top 25 Rankings, in their entirety.
