The Way-T-Early Top 25 rankings for next season in college basketball have been updated, and now that rosters are beginning to crystallize, its time to get familiar with each team. Weve already touched on the incoming freshmen to know, the future stars of reality TV and the top NBA prospect. Some learn best through music, so which songs go best with each team??1. Duke Blue Devils: Kids, MGMT (200Coach Mike Krzyzewski welcomes the nations No. 2 recruiting class to Durham, a group that includes No. 1 overall prospect Harry Giles, two other top-10 prospects and four of the top 20. The freshmen, especially point guard?Frank Jackson, will be relied on right away. If the Blue Devils can effectively blend youth with returning talent they will be crawling on their knees toward another national title. -- Sam Strong2. Villanova Wildcats: What We Do, Freeway, ft. Jay Z and Beanie Sigel (2003)While Philly native Freeway spits gritty bars about busted speakers and broken AC units, detailing his life of crime and the desperation that fueled it, producer Just Blazes soul-sampling beat bubbles up like champagne. The first jam of Freeways debut album is both an ode to the grind and a celebration of its rewards. Villanova -- a team haunted by first-weekend tournament failures before it stormed to the national title -- can surely relate. -- Eamonn Brennan3. Kentucky Wildcats: Sorry, Beyoncé?(2016)Two reasons to pick this song. First, the Kentucky fan base, also known as Big Blue Nation, swarms after naysayers just like Beyonces legion of fans known as the Beyhive. Just try to say something bad about BBN. We dare you. Second, John Calipari has an unapologetic style, and hes not changing anytime sn. If any team personifies the line, middle fingers up, put them hands high, it would be the Wildcats. -- C.L. Brown4. Kansas Jayhawks: Triumph, Wu Tang Clan (1997)Its a braggadocios ode to extravagance and success. And its perfect for a Kansas team that will fight for its 13th consecutive Big 12 title in 2016-17, a feat that would match UCLAs record established in the 1960s and 70s. Yes, the Jayhawks lost Perry Ellis and Wayne Selden Jr., but the arrival of elite recruit Josh Jackson, the No. 1 prospect on Chad Fords 2017 board, and the anchors (Devonte Graham and Frank Mason III) will give Bill Self the personnel to maintain their dominance of the Big 12. -- Myron Medcalf5. Virginia Cavaliers: Rags to Riches, Tony Bennett (1953)We had to pick a Tony Bennett song, right? And whats more appropriate for the Cavaliers, who have gone from irrelevant in the ACC to at or near the top of the heap for three years in a row now? Bennett has rebuilt Virginia into a national powerhouse but this season more than a few folks will wonder if he can keep the riches in place, having lost a senior class, anchored by Malcolm Brogdon, that has guided the turnaround. -- Dana ONeil6. North Carolina Tar Heels: Ill Stay Around, Willie Nelson (1967)Roy Williams, North Carolinas 65-year-old coach, wants to make one thing very clear: He isnt retiring, at least not anytime sn. Williams might not follow through on Willie Nelsons promise to stay around till its over, but so far hes making gd on the call me stubborn, but Ill never give in part. Williams response when he caught wind of a rumor that he was preparing to retire in the middle of last season? You have no frickin idea what youre talking about. -- Strong7. Oregon Ducks: Lumberjack, Johnny Cash (1960)A song about a man who lived on a farm out in Iowa before he heard the Oregon timber callin me might as well be about coach Dana Altman, who spent 16 years coaching at Creighton in Omaha, Nebraska, before timber-derived resources at Nike CEO Phil Knights alma mater lured him to the Northwest. Unlike Cashs protagonist, Altmans move -- which just produced a Pac-12 title sweep and a No. 1 seed -- has been an unambiguous success. -- Brennan8. Wisconsin Badgers: All the Way Up (Remix), Fat Joe and Remy Ma ft. Jay Z (2016)When Nigel Hayes withdrew his name from the NBA draft, it kept the Badgers entire starting roster intact, and their top nine scorers from last season return. Hayes and fellow senior Bronson Koenig are poised to contend for a third Final Four appearance. How high is high enough? Till we eye-and-eye with the higher ups. -- Brown9. Xavier Musketeers: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Gordon Lightft (1976)Hopefully the Gordon Lightft folk song doesnt ring true for the Musketeers. They need their Edmond to avoid the gales of November. And December, January, February and March. After being done in by a bad knee two seasons ago and a frightening on-court fall in December, the baby-faced Edmond Sumner was sensational last season, averaging 11 points. Hes a big part of the equation -- and expectations -- for Xavier this season. -- ONeil10. Michigan State Spartans: Un-Break My Heart, Toni Braxton (1996)Its the perfect ballad for a talented Michigan State squad that must move forward without its Valentine ... Denzel Valentine. This is a Spartans group that should compete for the Big Ten championship and more. Eron Harris is back. The squad will also add a pair of talented recruits in Miles Bridges and Josh Langford. But Valentine was a special player for this program. No matter what the Spartans achieve next season, theyll probably miss their former star and leader. -- Medcalf11. Indiana Hsiers: Lk At Me Now, Chris Brown ft. Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne (2011)Indiana coach Tom Crean sat squarely on the hot seat going into last season, and he knew it. Instead of allowing his detractors to get their wish, Crean and the Hsiers shk off an ugly 5-3 start to the season and marched into the Sweet 16, where they fell to North Carolina. Now, Crean returns proven scorer James Blackmon Jr., talented big man Thomas Bryant and explosive guard?OG Anunoby. So yes, as Chris Brown foretold, Crean dont see how you can hate from outside of the club Lk at him now, hes (still) getting paper. -- Strong12. Arizona Wildcats: True Love Waits, Radiohead (2001)Radioheads most pined-after, btlegged and illegally shared track was first played live in 1995, about a year before Arizonas lone national championship under former coach Lute Olson. After some down seasons, Sean Miller has since returned the program to Olsons heights, but despite his success he is still waiting for his first trip to the Final Four. (In 2016, Radiohead finally released an album cut of True Love Waits. Keep the faith.) -- Brennan13. Louisville Cardinals: Lets Talk About Sex, Salt-n-Pepa (1991)Lets face it. What else do people want to talk about when it comes to the Cardinals lately? Their great defense? No, that ship sailed amid the sordid scandal that broke last year about strippers and sex and players and dorm rms. The salacious details painted in a bk penned by a former escort cost Louisville its postseason a year ago and will hang over the Cards until the NCAA eventually weighs in with the penalties. -- ONeil14. Purdue Boilermakers: Shake It Off, Taylor Swift (2014)Last year, Purdues season ended with a heartbreaking loss to 12-seed Arkansas-Little Rock in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. That loss followed a season of inconsistency that concluded with the departure of center A.J. Hammons. But the Boilermakers should listen to Taylor Swift and Shake It Off.?Caleb Swanigan and Vince Edwards are back. Isaac Haas is a monster inside. Spike Albrecht?will join the program next season, t. If Purdue reaches its potential, Boilermakers fans will sn forget last seasons embarrassing finish. -- Medcalf15. West Virginia Mountaineers: No Problem, Chance the Rapper ft. 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne (2016)Over the last two seasons, the Mountaineers have led the nation in defensive turnover percentage, and their Press Virginia style isnt letting up anytime sn. Although forward Devin Williams departure left them thin in the frontcourt, the strength of Bob Huggins team will be its backcourt. As the song proclaims, You dont want zero problems, big fella. -- Brown16. Gonzaga Bulldogs: (Its a) Departure, The Long Winters (2006)Its familiar, but not t familiar, The Long Winters John Roderick, a Seattle native, sings, before an immediate second-guess: But not t not familiar. Its a fair enough way to describe the 2016-17 Bulldogs, who lost Domantas Sabonis and Kyle Wiltjer, the beating heart of their Elite Eight run last March, and who need to integrate a host of new players around return stalwart Przemek Karnowski. Its a familiar roster, but not -- well, you get the idea. -- Brennan17. UCLA Bruins: Holding Out for a Hero, Bonnie Tyler (1984)When your head coach decides to give back a year of a contract extension that was already inked because angry fans wouldnt stop flying banners or driving billboards around campus demanding he be fired, its safe to say you need a hero much in the same way Kevin Bacon needed to win that game of chicken in Ftlse. The Bruins are hoping their white knight upon a fiery steed is freshman Lonzo Ball, the top-ranked point guard in the 2016 class. -- Strong18. Maryland Terrapins: Public Service Announcement, Jay Z (2003)The Terps began last season as our preseason No. 1 team but never quite lived up to expectations. With the bulk of that team now gone including freshman center Diamond Stone, the Terps have to redefine themselves. Junior guard Melo Trimble is the main player who will be stating, Allow me to reintroduce myself, after watching his shting percentages decline as a sophomore. -- Brown19. Saint Marys Gaels: Down Under, Men at Work (1981)OK yes, its obvious but with six Australians on the roster obvious seems a gd route to go. Even better than the song is the band that sang it -- Men at Work. Thats what these Gaels need to do, find some hardhats and get some work done so they can get out of their three-year NIT skid. -- ONeil20. Creighton Bluejays: Dont You (Forget About Me), Simple Minds (1985)The Bluejays deserve more love and attention this offseason. Three of Creightons top four scorers -- Maurice Watson Jr. (14.1 points per game), Cole Huff (11.3) and Isaiah Zierden (10.2) -- return in 2016-17. Plus, former Kansas State star Marcus Foster (12.5 PPG in 2014-15) will be eligible next season. So, in the words of Scottish rock band Simple Minds, Dont You (Forget About Me). It would not be wise to ignore this program in the buildup to 2016-17. -- Medcalf21. Rhode Island Rams: Better Now, Collective Soul (2004)The Rams will be favored by many to win the Atlantic 10 this season, and they were supposed to be in contention last season t before star guard E.C. Matthews tore his ACL. During the 2014-15 season, Matthews scored nearly 17 points and grabbed 5.6 rebounds per game. After a lengthy rehab process, Matthews is set to return, newly calibrated, all shiny and clean. You heard Collective Soul, let the word out, oh Im (hes) feeling better now.?-- Strong22. Cincinnati Bearcats: Ace of Spades, Motorhead (1980)There is no larger thematic significance here other than that Ace of Spades is the best fighting soundtrack ever, and Cincinnatis preferred style of play can best be described as organized bar-brawl. -- Brennan23. Florida State Seminoles: Cl It Now, New Edition (1984)Florida State hasnt reached the NCAA tournament since 2012. Leonard Hamiltons team boasts the talent to end that streak in 2016-17. Dwayne Bacon (15.8 PPG) and Xavier Rathan-Mayes (11.8 PPG) are both back. Jonathan Isaac, the No. 12 prospect in the 2016 incoming class per RecruitingNation, will join the fold, t. Its all there for Florida State. The program should take New Editions advice, however, and Cl It Now. Florida State finished 41st in adjusted tempo but committed turnovers on 18.6 percent of its possessions in league play (12th in the ACC), per KenPom.com. -- Medcalf24. Connecticut Huskies: Scenario, A Tribe Called Quest (1992)The Huskies have embodied Phife Dawgs classic line, Weve been known to do the impossible like Broadway Joe. UConn put together two of the most improbable title runs this century led by Kemba Walker in 2011 and Shabazz Napier in 2014. Just like those teams, on paper, UConn this season doesnt automatically lk like a national championship contender. But at this point we should not be surprised if coach Kevin Ollie summons his inner Namath. -- Brown25. Syracuse Orange: Happy, Pharrell Williams (2013)Wait. Thats not the first word that pops in your head when you think of coach Jim Boeheim? Well the Hall of Famer ought to be downright giddy this season. The mess of an endless NCAA investigation is behind him, his team somehow made it to the Final Four a year ago, and though losing Malachi Richardson to the NBA was a blow, the Orange will have a talented roster mixed with old and new, that should make for a gd season. Buy the man a Pharrell hat. -- ONeil Nike Air Max Plus Rabatt . Wdson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars.

Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured.
