Louisville Starts Season At No. 1 In Pomeroy Rankings

Streeter Lecka

Statistical guru Ken Pomeroy has released his first set of rankings for the 2013-14 season, and he has Louisville at No. 1 by a relatively wide margin.

Although no preseason ranking means anything, this is still a bit comforting since the KenPom rankings were more bullish on the Cardinals than any other throughout last season, faith which was ultimately rewarded.

Here's your first dose of KenPom:
