UCLA is ranked about #14-19 on most of those polls. Since 1985, about 76% of those teams on the AP poll have made the NCAA tournament (but last season only two of the six did).

From 2006 to 2017, #15-19 preseason teams have won an average of exactly one NCAA tournament game. Last season they won an average of 0.5 games.

Last season we were ranked #18 on the AP preseason poll.
