we are getting better though-I still think there's some untapped upward potential in Jarray, Hunt and even Dixon

Charleston Pony wrote:We still have a "good" team; they just aren't NCAA worthy based on what they have shown thus far. Doesn't mean they can't reach the NIT and have some post-season fun. Will have to see how we look against the upper division AAC teams before I'm ready to say we have no chance of winning the AAC Tourney and sneaking in...stranger things have happened, but based on this 10-4 start, I'd be happy with a 20 win season and NIT bid...maybe even a 1st round home game?


Continued progression over the next three games would be what I’d like to see. If the shots (layups especially) fall we should be a good.... not great.... team.

Can we go 2-1 in the next three?

Before we start getting too excited remember our NET this week is 132 and our current RPI is 186.

A long way to go but at least we are trending in the right direction.

I’m all for CP’s thoughts on going to the NIT but didn’t the admin say we will not accept anything other than NCAA tourney? I would have to think they will need to rescind that doctrine given the current status of the team and crowd. Anybody hear about this turnaround?

they were talking about the CBI level tournaments-we'd definitely accept an NIT bid

Regular season conference champions get auto bids to NIT if they fail to win their conference tourneys and get auto bids to the NCAA Tourney...no brainer to play NIT if you don't make the dance!

We’re getting better as these guys get more game time together. We’ll know more by January 31.

My bad. That makes sense. Do you think they still deny CBI then?

A win at UConn this week will go a long way toward seeing how far we can go this season. Big game on the road.
