No. 1: Duke F Kyle Singler
We continue our countdown of the top 50 players in the nation. We'll unveil the top player Nov. 7, the day before the season begins. 'Top' doesn't necessarily mean the most pro potential or even the most talent. Rather, it's a combination of what the player has accomplished and how we think the player will do this season. But production does trump potential.

No. 1: Duke F Kyle Singler
THE PARTICULARS: 6-8/230, Sr.; South Medford (Ore.) High
THE BUZZ: Only time will tell if Singler outshines a star-studded freshman class, but he clearly is the most accomplished of the nation's returning players. Singler was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four after leading Duke to the national title last year and has earned All-ACC honors each of the last three seasons.

Rankings determined by basketball writers David Fox, Mike Huguenin, Jason King and Steve Megargee and recruiting analysts Eric Bossi and Jerry Meyer.
