Preseason power rankings: Power forwards

Notre Dame senior Luke Harangody arguably is the nation's most outstanding player. He undoubtedly is the most indispensable.

Without Harangody in the lineup, Notre Dame might struggle to finish as high as 12th in the Big East standings. With Harangody, the Irish are legitimate NCAA tournament contenders.

Harangody enters his senior season with 1,036 career points and 540 career rebounds, which puts him 369 points and 162 rebounds away from becoming the Big East's career leader in each of those categories.
