For fun, predict what seed we’ll be next season in NCAA Tournament
We can revisit and see who guessed right. Obviously a lot depends on what the roster ends up looking like, with the late signing period in recruiting and a possible grad transfer. Then clearly a lot will depend on how Penny and staff mold the talent.

Lets say Penny does a good job at both, putting together a talented roster and getting everyone to buy into their rolls.

Neither of those things are a stretch, good players want to play for him and he just proved he can coach and get players to buy into his system and style. Even with most of the roster not being his guys.

With that said, I think we can get anywhere from a 3 to a 6 seed, maybe a 2.

But my prediction is a 3 seed.

7-11 seed...

Don't see us getting a preferred seed unless Wiseman is a Zion level talent or another one of the guys is vastly underrated.

Now if we get more 5*'s I reserve the right to change this prediction 03-wink

Any of you remember what our seeding was during the Lauringburg Prep freshman class? Dozier, Anderson, Williams, freshman year.

I did say lets assume Penny finishes off the recruiting and puts together a good roster.

I don’t see us being an 8, 9, 10, or 11 at all. Imagine how a number one seed would react to playing us as a 8 or 9. I’d imagine they’d be irked. And rightfully so. But you’re entitled to your opinion. 04-cheers

I think he has a good Roster right now even if he doesn't add another player.

But I just don't expect college Freshmen (minus Wiseman...He's an NBA freshmen) to come in right away and win @ a high level. So there will be losses early that will hurt our seeding.

It takes time to put things together as we have seen this year.

Cinci is 27-6 and predicted as a 7 seed.

Houston is 31-2 and predicted as a 3...Which is ridiculous.

So guessing of course, your saying around a 6 seed.

There might be looses early that will hurt our seeding but we won’t go winless early, so if we split the games early vs good competition, our seeding can’t be harmed that much. We aren’t loosing to every ranked opponent next season. As it was this season we came close quite a few times with less talent than we’ll have next season.

But again, that’s my opinion and gut feeling on the matter.

I’d rather have talented freshmen than second year junior college guys, that mostly are good roll players. That’s just me. Not a knock on them, having good roll players is important, however if you have all roll players with only one star or all conference player, it makes beating really good teams hard. That changes starting next year. Plus Penny will have his guys.

I think thats about right but am curious how the committee will value them. Seems our conference is always knocked a seed or two. If Houston’s season is only worth a 3 seed i think it’s going to be tough to get above a 4-5 as we get the newcomers up to speed and drop a few early games. I feel like we can have a season comparable to cincys this year. With more upside at the end as the freshman come together.

We could have won that game. Both teams played horrible and we were just a little worse.

RE: For fun, predict what seed we’ll be next season in NCAA Tournament
We will still be extremely young next year . . . I think it’s asking a lot to say this is a 2-4 seed . . . I would expect somewhere in the 5-7 and that would be with everything breaking right. We are losing a lot this year and yes the incoming class is great but it’s still a bunch of kids who haven’t played college basketball. How many teams are Fresh/Sophomore heavy like we will be that gets a seed lower then 5? Doesn’t happen very often.
25-8 overall record.
2nd in conference
5 seed.
