If we can go 12-4 in conference we need to win 8-of-14 OOC games to pull that off.
That would be best case scenario with some favorable bounces, and is admittedly a bit optimistic upon further review.
17 or 18 wins is more realistic…which is 3-4 more wins than last season (14).
BUT, the most important games obviously take place in March, and count head and shoulders above the rest.
Regardless, we should do MUCH better in the SBC tourney…will be making plans for that gig, and hopefully - if things go well - the one after that ;)
Rick saidI got my hand slapped in an interview a while back when asserting the possibility of a 20 win season…Coach wasn't in favor of the notion, asking "where do you see 20 wins" in response.
Jarvis is a pro… under promise, over deliver.
Looking at your schedule I think 16-18 wins is about right. †If things go well 20 is not out of the question.
We need to get back on D quicker.† We tend to admire our shots and immediately are out of position for defense and after we do something great on O, we quickly give it right back to the opponent with our D.
I would say 16-18 games is about right.† If we play both ends of the court, who knows?
NCowl saidI am expecting Sweet 16 to make up for the football season!
We need the Final 4 to make up for this football season.
If I had to rank the likelihood for each team, I'd break it down like this:
North Texas - 30%
Western Kentucky - 20%
Arkansas State - 20%
Florida Atlantic - 15%
South Alabama - 15%
I really like your team this year. At the start of the summer, I was borderline on picking FAU to win the east over Western. I don't know that I'd say I expect it to happen, but it certainly wouldn't surprise me.
