The 2010-11 NCAA basketball season has come and gone, but it is never too late to look forward to next season. Here is a look at several teams that can expect to see their AP Poll ranking increase to start the 2011 ? 12 seasons.

1. Connecticut Huskies ? After winning the NCAA National Title, Connecticut sees its AP ranking increase steadily, from a top 20 to first overall seed in the nation. Despite losing Kemba Walker to the NBA draft, the Connecticut Huskies are a team that could be good for several years to come, as some of their starters were only freshmen in 2010-11.

2. Kentucky Wildcats ? Despite losing in the final four semi ? final round of the March Madness tournament, the Kentucky Wildcats will once again be ranked in the top five of the NCAA basketball rankings. With Brandon Knight expected to return for another season, the Wildcats have the potential to enter the 2012 March Madness tournament as a possible number one seed. What’s more, the Wildcats knocked off Ohio State in the elite eight round of this year’s tournament. Meaning to say, there strong defensive play is what should set them apart from the rest of the NCAA when they enter the season ranked as a two seed.

3. Ohio State Buckeyes ? The Buckeyes entered this year’s tournament as the best school in the entire NCAA. With Jarred Sullinger returning for another season, the Buckeyes look to be ranked rather high again. As well, the Buckeyes similar to Kentucky should once again be considered a possible top seed in the March Madness tournament, as they return roughly the same looking team as the one that failed to reach the final four this season.

4. Butler Bulldogs ? Going into 2011-12, we expect the Butler Bulldogs to finally get the respect they deserve from the NCAA. Essentially, last year the Bulldogs weren’t even ranked going into the 2010-11 season, as many experts believed their run to the final was a fluke. Considering they returned their this past week, the Bulldogs will probably be ranked as the fourth seed in next year’s opening AP poll, just because two consecutive berths in the finals can’t be disregarded.
