http://collegebasketball.rivals.com/content.asp?SID=1146&CID=735519

i pulled some of the "big" names from the Belt and rivals.com's rankings for them:

54. WESTERN KENTUCKY
NBA scouts have their eye on wing Courtney Lee (17.3 ppg).

58. SOUTH ALABAMA
Ronnie Arrow, who coached at USA from 1987-1994, replaces John Pelphrey (now at Arkansas).

127. LOUISIANA-MONROE
Sun Belt's 2006-07 coach of the year Orlando Early has every starter back.

173. FLORIDA ATLANTIC
Junior Carlos Monroe (18.4 ppg, 9.4 rpg) is the Sun Belt's best post player.

177. NORTH TEXAS
Guards Calvin Watson and Kendrick Davis, who led the Mean Green to the 2007 NCAA Tournament, are gone.

interesting…

not in the polls:

WKU is OVERRATED, and so is Lee.

USA has a new coach, poll allocates no time considered for new system, leadership style, etc…they will not be there at seasons end.

As usual, we fall victim to the "paradigm" of thought all media has towards FAU at the beginning of the season…only to prove them all wrong at season's end…

Great motivation for our guys to hang thier hats on once again!

GO Owls!!!

early season competition; just goes to show you if we can compete with WKU we can play with the rams and eagles

56. Rhode Island
Rams are full of offensive weapons. Defense is the big question mark.


75. Boston College
Underrated coach Al Skinner won't let Eagles fall too far down ACC standings.

URI has a weak defense, even in their preseason games against d2 schools they were letting up 60+ points but scoring over a 100.

BC is young and all over the place. there's no reason we can't beat them.

…and Doherty is a heck of a coach.  I know some think he dissed us, but he did great things for our program in one single season.  That guy can coach.
