Can't wait too. 

What do you think about the next draft ? I read everywhere it's a weaker draft, with no superstar. 

Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, Cameron Reddish, there are 3 superstars just at Duke

 

This years draft may be even better than last years. Very solid upper-classmen as well

There's no obvious prize like an Anthony Davis, Lebron, Durant/Odom to tank towards, but plenty with star potential.

 

Reddish probably can make an immediate impact as a pure scorer but everyone else seems like a project.  Zion is an athletic freak but very raw.  Nassir Little can develop into a two-way beast.  RJ Barrett looks promising too.  There will probably be some frequent allstars from this group, but it's gonna be a riddle for the GM's to figure out who

Welp, Duke is really, really good.  So that sucks.

 

And Florida wasn't just bad tonight, they're completely unwatchable.  They don't try and run any offense.  They just pass the ball around the perimeter and throw up 3's.

Michigan just destroyed the Defending National Champions! This could be a fun team to watch this year.

The Big Ten is off to a pretty good start with that win, Indiana beating Marquette, and a handful of other quality wins over teams like Cincinnati, Xavier, Utah, etc.

B1G has ten teams in the KemPom Top 40 and 12 in the Top 50.  That's more than any other conference.  The ACC has more Top 30 teams (7-6).  

 

Since the RPI is gone, road wins are getting more emphasis.  

 

And Villanova lost their top 4 scorers.

FYI, Friday's Binghamton/Northwestern game on ESPNEWS will have Kornheiser and Wilbon on the call as it's a game with their alma maters.

Well, expect Memphis to get another visit from the NCAA.  Class of 2019 #1 recruit and East Memphis HS center James Wiseman, commits to the Tigers and his grasswoods coach, Penny Hardaway.  

Is there a 2 year rule now for coaches signing players from their former high school?

The NCAA has had the two year rule in men's basketball since 2010, but that bylaw states that the coach is not supposed to recruit that school for a two year period.    However, the Team Penny association seems to run afoul Bylaw 11.4.2.

Moe Harkless was basically under the same situation when committing to St. John's in 2011. He was ruled eligible.

Wiseman makes the sixth Team Penny player to sign with Memphis.

If Gonzaga just does what they typically do, there gonna get the #1 seed in the West. Plus, their returning leading scorer is out until January.

 

That said, this was the first loss for Duke in Maui ever, they won the tournament the previous six times. Let's not get it twisted, Duke was never gonna go undefeated in the ACC.

The NCAA is introducing a new ranking tool called the 'NET' or NCAA Evaluation Tool. The first ever rankings for this tool is out and the first team to be #1 here is...

 

Ohio State.

 

There are a few other oddities here like Loyola Marymount at #10.

I'm a Buckeye fan and even I know that's not right!
