The first Power Rankings of 2010-11 are siding with Duke. There's a time for making shock-value picks, and there's a time for acknowledging when one team -- even if it has a freshman point guard -- is far superior to the rest. The other No. 1 candidates are hardly neglected, though: Michigan State, my No. 2, receives an ode to its unsung point-forward; and Kansas State, my No. 3, receives a ludicrous (but fantastic) court-design proposal. It should suffice as consolation.
