Prognosticators come to their senses

After an unflattering prediction by Rush the Court the other day, Oakland is back on top of the latest previews by Rivals.com and ESPN via Blue Ribbon. For ESPN, Eamonn Brennan breaks down the league in a quick, minute-long video, calling the Summit League Oakland's to lose with the return of Keith Benson. However, the remaining team-by-team content has restricted access.

Said Rivals:
"Frustrated as Keith Benson was that an offseason thumb injury forced him to put his NBA career on hold, the situation couldn't have worked out any better for the Summit League, which is no doubt ecstatic that its marquee player is back for another season."

"Greg Kampe's squad may not be quite as good following the loss of assists leader Johnathon Jones and all-around threat Derrick (sic) Nelson. Still, as long as Benson is in the mix, Oakland will be the heavy favorite to repeat as champion."

Rivals also has Benson as an All-Summit League first-team pick and guard Larry Wright as a second-teamer.
