22 wins minimum. 12 wins OOC 10-8 minimum big east. Sweeping Depaul and Seton Hall and gives us room for a double loss to a Nova potentially but I dont even think that's going to happen but it's still Nova so I'll assume the worst. Also wouldnt be surprised if we swept Providence this year. I could actually see us getting to 24 wins potentially

If Heron plays we are stacked. 2 of the best players in the big east. Simon top 15ish so basically we have 3 of the top 20 players in the big east all older plus an improved Clark. That's not even throwing in Fig and I'm expecting solid contributions from Dixon too

This is the year we bust out on the court

Reasonable guess. Concerned that 22 wins puts us only on the plus side of the bubble given weak OOC schedule. I think it would get us in, but 20 wins may not. Hoping we can pull 11-7 in conference, which would make us pretty solid in terms of a bid.

There are not many easy outs in conference, so winning away games in conference is not an easy task. 10-8 feels right, but I also feel we are due for something better.

Depth of roster should help a ton. We have to avoid serious injuries to our front line players, but witht his roster we may be able to endure the type of injury that keeps a top player out for 1 or 2 games.

I agree that 20 wins wont get us in because of the week ooc.

Without Heron 12 - 1 OOC and 10-8 in Conference 22 - 9 with one win in the Big East Tournament making us 23-10 and a bubble NCAA team which probably doesn't get a bid due weak strength of schedule.

With Heron, going out on a limb here, 13-0 OOC and 11-7 in conference with two wins in the Big East Tournament making us 26-8 and an NCAA berth. Strength of Schedule doesn't matter due to high finish in the Big East and beating Duke on the road.

Should have added my total doesn't include big east tourney and I think we get 1 win minimum and most likely more

26 wins going into Selection Sunday. Some complain about seeding but because of OOC, we really shouldn't gripe. Seth Greenberg has us in his Final Four. Survive first game. Beat crap out of opponent in second game. Crystal ball is hazy beyond that.

I am not going to do the number of wins.

I think we make the NCAA's and Advance to the Sweet 16.
I really think this is a big year for us. We need to win this year...

I just don't see these lofty win totals from this team. Its a big jump. Don't know about Heron, expecting a lot out of Figeoura, lack of size, etc. I'm still not sure this coaching staff is capable of the number of wins everyone is posting about.
