Pasnter already took an L from the WAC in recruiting this post season (Alessandro Lever to GCU). We'll see if Runners have what it takes to hand GT another L, courtesy of the WAC. :)

GIT, TCU, UCF and CSUB ...

CSUB is playing as well as anyone. Frankly I'm betting on the roadrunners. They have been on the road the whole way and are playing awesome hard, start to finish. One hell of a run for the lowest seeded team. I'm super impressed.

As a Cal State grad, I'm rooting for the Bake campus (same system), so some homerism for sure. But dang they are fun to watch, and extremely well coached)

Thx. Agree they're hot...not sure i have your faith, ...yet. Perhaps i need the sermon about faith of a mustard seed.
Fun to watch...when they don't destruct with fouls and scoreless droughts, yes.
For next year, the foul discipline and FT % will absolutely need to be addressed.

Currently mobile....but not necessarily upwardly.

1. New Mexico State - Weir needs to add little more inside depth and possibly a backup point guard
2. Grand Canyon - Majerle needs to sign or develop a replacement for Dewayne Russell and continue to upgrade his roster.
3. Utah Valley - Pope needs to develop team chemistry and develop a better defense amongst his varying levels of talent.
4. Cal State Bakersfield - Barnes needs to recruit to replenish his depth after some key senior departures.
5. UM Kansas City - Richardson needs to find a new team leader after Boyds departure and continue to upgrade his team's overall talent.
6. UT Rio Grande Valley - Hill is in the process of recruiting his type of players to fit his system. A three to four year process.
7. Seattle U. - The new coach must evaluate his team's talent and recruit needs as he will need time to molds a style.
8. Chicago State - Dildy needs to sign best players he can find with limited resources just to stay competitive.

I just don't see CSUB at 4th next season. Barnes is losing some key seniors, but there is still a lot of experience left. In the game against UTA, there two leading scores in the game were Briggs with 19 points and Durham at 18 points. Both are juniors. Wrapp and Aly are also coming back. The style of ball is not going to change. They play tough defense and control the pace of games and that is not going to change. I think Barnes recruits players that fit that system well.

GCU is losing Russell, but not much else and they are adding another three star high school recruit. I agree with a lot of your other points. Seattle is a total unknown, just got to see what they do at head coach.

I think scoring wise, Barnes has a good nucleus of players to build around. However, without "mature" deep who can execute his pressure defense, it will be hard for his team to get the jump on teams like NMSU, GCU, and UVU. All three have very good scorers as well. Barnes will needs some of his new players to execute his defensive system with little drop off. This season, Barnes has the luxury of having a veteran group of quick mature guards...Dedrick Basile, Justin Pride, and Jaylin Airington (and one very quick/athletic forward... Matt Smith). I'm not sure Wrapp and Durham can sustain that defensive intensity without bench support. If Barnes can get CSUB into the top three, that would be his best coaching effort to date.

The thing with Bakersfield too is how Barnes has been able to get transfers. Now a deep NIT run and the tourny appearance last year? Bigger name transfers will take CSUB more seriously and ones who dont need to sit out a year could play a big part next season
