With the start of the college basketball regular season now less than three months away, several preseason hoops publications are beginning to hit newsstands.

And Indiana senior Robert Johnson will be prominently featured on a regional cover of three different preview magazines: Athlon Sports, Lindy’s Sports and Street and Smith’s.

The 6-foot-3 Johnson is the leading returning scorer for Indiana and should surpass the 1,000-career points mark early in his senior season.

Along with their cover releases, Lindy’s Sports and Street and Smith’s revealed their preseason top 10 teams and Athlon Sports revealed a top 20.

Indiana will play three teams in the Lindy’s top 10: Michigan State (1), Duke (4) and Louisville (9). Michigan State is No. 2 in the Street and Smith’s preseason top 10, Louisville is No. 3 and Duke is No. 4.

The Hoosiers will play six teams in the Athlon Sports preseason top 20: Michigan State (2), Duke (4), Louisville (5), Minnesota (16), Purdue (18) and Seton Hall (20).
