Jason King picks Louisville to repeat as champions

In his Top 10 things he's excited about for the 2013-2014 season, Jason King over at ESPN has a Cardinals repeat as his #10:

For the first time in eons (OK, maybe ever), the team I picked in the preseason to win the national title -- the team I stood by all season, no matter what (this is documented) -- ended up cutting down the nets. So thanks, Louisville.

Now I'm picking you again.

I believe the Cardinals could be even better in 2013-14 than they were last season. Junior college transfer Chris Jones -- the top-ranked juco recruit in the country -- could be an improvement over departing senior Peyton Siva. The loss of Gorgui Dieng will hurt down low. But my guess is that Chane Behanan, Montrezl Harrell, Luke Hancock, Wayne Blackshear and others will make big enough strides to overcome it.

Kentucky will no doubt be the most talented team in the country. But Louisville's experience -- it's been to two straight Final Fours -- and cohesion under newly minted Hall of Famer Rick Pitino will keep the Cardinals at the top.
