looks like this will be a tough season for our guys to win more than 6 or 7 games in conference, but some of you may know better.

Maybe the next 2019 player addition will change that. IMO the only significant loss was Shamorie Ponds and to some extent Justin. The season is a long way off.

Going to be tough sledding in 2019 for SJU. I would like the team to develop into the team nobody wants to play. We’ll see.

25 seems like a bit high for Marquette as well, given their losses.

Eli Wright, Heron, Figueroa and Steere along with Williams will do just fine against most teams. There will actually be depth for the first time in 4 years. It will be the first time in 4 years we have actual coaches. Recruiting is not over. No way we win just 6 games.

I'd agree '72, if we get a seasoned PG to lead us for a year.
And not sure how good of a PG we can get this late, especially if Thornton gets 'lifted' by Gonzaga, which I'm bracing for (if it hasn't happened yet).
So, it 'could' be a year in which we're feisty, unpredictable, dangerous--but are maybe 1 - 2 players 'short', but CMA infuses his style of 40 MOH and paves the way for future success.

"CMA infuses his style of 40 MOH and paves the way for future success."

Add some of DeMeo's 1-3-1 Trap everywhere, Ball screen defense and ICE, and damn by February I'm thinking we'll be real fun to watch.

Could be but...has anyone seen Wright play. I haven’t. Steere (if I remember correctly) might not be immediately eligible and I have never seen him play either. Then their is that glaring hole at experienced PG and recruiting at this late date is tricky. Need someone ASAP. Just so many question marks. As always patience is a virtue we will need lots of.
