Sports Illustrated released its season preview and gave Akron a bid in its NCAA Tournament predictions.
According to my favorite magazine of all time, Akron is the nation's 47th best team because ...
"LeBron's old running mates from St. Vincent-St. Mary, PG Dru Joyce and PF Romeo Travis, form one of the best duos at any mid-major."
I think No. 47 is pretty fair. And you?
