Duke has 5 of the 20--not bad at all!

slight corrections. there are only 19, and these are the last 19 college basketball season preview covers, not the 20 best ever!!!!

Those were fun to see again. I hated the Wojo cover because I'm "old school" and that cover was too much about the painted fans and not enough about the team.

And I hated the McCants cover, because I never could stand Rashad.

When I saw the Wojo cover it gave me a brief glimpse into why teams hate us so.

Wow, I remember that Felipe Lopez/St John's cover from back in the day. He was the latest next-Jordan as I remember it, after Harold "Baby Jordan" Miner didn't pan out as predicted.

It's interesting that though Shane Battier is on the 2000-2001 cover, they picked Arizona as number 1 (look under "Top 20 Scouting Reports"). So they didn't pick it right that year.
