Conference Standings Predictions
NMSU 13-3 I would say there's more top parity in the league since it's been reformed. Still though, I feel it starts and stops with NMSU. Bold prediction- NMSU loses a conference home game.

UVU 11-5 BOLD- UVU will lose to a team under .500 on the road

Seattle 10-6 BOLD- Seattle will be swept by someone not named NMSU.

GCU 10-6 I don't think this is an indicator of GCU but more so just a better conference. Winner of Thurs UVU/GCU game will have the inside track for the #2 seed. BOLD- GCU won't win a game in the tourney despite the great crowd that travels with them to Vegas.

UTRGV- 7-9 All of these teams are interchangeable. BTW, I always like 16 games. I feel it makes teams more comfortable for conference tournaments and upsets/better basketball is played. BOLD- Varner WONT be their leading scorer in conference play (not too bold I know)

Bakersfield- 7-9 BOLD- Barnes will not coach Bakersfield next year.

Cal Baptist- 7-9 BOLD- I will learn something about them by the end of the reg season.

UMKC 6-10 BOLD- Road W vs a team with 10+ wins AND will win a game in Vegas.

Chicago St. 1-15. That's the bold prediction. 1 win. As long as it's not against UVU or UMKC (which seems most likely) I'm good with a CSU win.




Whatcha got?

RE: Conference Standings Predictions
NMSU-14-2 Losses on the road to Seattle and UVU
Seattle-11-5 Loss at home to Southern Utah still haunts me
Utah Valley 10-6 Better than everyone expected
GCU-9-7 They are not good, GCU fans will finally start doubting their Messiah Majerle this after this year.
CBU-9-7 Better than everyone thinks
CSUB-8-8-Dangerous but not a top tier WAC team anymore
UTGRV-6-10-Not as good as everyone thinks
UMKC-Will beat Seattle and GCU at home
Chicago State-2-14
WAC regular season and tourney champs-NMSU

Sweet lord I hope UMKC does better than 3-13. I imagine anything less than 6 wins will probably cost Kareem his job, especially with a new AD.

"BOLD- Barnes will not coach Bakersfield next year."

I'd say that's a fair comment. No, I'm not privy to any info on this topic. I personally feel like he's taken these guys as far as he can. I'm not much of a BB coach, but seems this team has more talent than they are producing.

RE: Conference Standings Predictions
NMSU- Will probably win both conference and wac tourny. Likely a first round exit in the ncaa tournament again.
GCU- Not sure why everyone is so down on gcu. They had the toughest schedule and really put up a fight in all the losses (except for 1).
Utah Valley- They can really beat up similar skilled teams. Are really bad against teams that are better than them.
Seattle- Not sure how to evaluate seattle. They had a really easy schedule.
CSUB- Pretty much average.
UTRGV- Our defense is finally decent but our offense really sucks. We can upset a team or 2 but that's about it.
CBU- Higher on them than at the start of the season.
UMKC- Meh.
Chicago State- Things will get better eventually.

RE: Conference Standings Predictions
Here are my predictions:
(1) NMSU (14-2) - they are still top dog until proven otherwise. However, they have no wins over a top 150 team yet so it is hard to tell how good they are. [Hanging tough with Kansas was very impressive though]
(2) GCU (13-3) - 7 of their 13 OOC games were against top 150 teams (based on KenPom.com). They only won one of them but they hung tough in several of the other games. I think the tougher OOC schedule will help the Lopes as they enter conference play.
(3) Seattle (12-4) - In the games I watched they looked impressive. They never left the West Coast though and their best win was probably the away game at California (which isn't that good).
(4) UVU (11-5) - I should probably rank them higher due to their win at Fresno State (#62 on KenPom) which was probably the best OOC win of any WAC team, but I think they are too dependent on just a couple players. They have the potential to beat anyone but also lose to anyone as well (except perhaps CSU).
(5) CBU (9-7) - They will be tough at home with a good fan base. CBU is following the GCU blueprint to a tee. I predict they upset one of the top four WAC teams.
(6) CSUB (8-8) - Not enough offensive talent to challenge the top four teams in the WAC.
(7) UTRGV (5-11) - Seem to be improving but so is the rest of the WAC.
(8) UMKC (4-12) - Rebounding is going to be their Achilles Heal.
(9) CSU (1-15) - The Cougars surprise someone at home!

I agree except I think both UTRGV and UMKC tie at 6-10 and CBU and CSUB tie at 8-8. I think GCU has 5 loses but still finishes in 2nd. 2-8 is going to be anyone can beat anyone kind of WAC this year. Tough to get road victories.

Based on today's results, it certainly does seem like it will be tough to get road wins. UVU, SU and NMSU all went down on the road. Should be a very, very interesting WAC season. Looking forward to it!

At the midway point, my predictions are way off when it comes to Seattle (currently 1-6) and CSUB (currently 6-1), but the rest is fairly accurate. CBU did get a victory over one of the top four WAC teams, and NMSU/GCU seem to be the top two teams. Still waiting for the Cougars to surprise someone at home though. Hope it isn't GCU!
