Just what the thread title says…how far away are we from success on the court?
I’ll put three different questions out there, would like to see the boards opinion…
- How far away are me from an NIT berth?
- How far away are we from an NCAA berth?
- How far away are we from a top 25 ranking?
In my opinion we will be an NIT squad next year, assuming DJ Newbill doesn’t get hurt. This team desperately needs a shooter, and I think a guy like Newbill adds a valuable second (or third) scoring option for us next year. He shot 53% from the floor and a whopping 43% from three as a freshman. For a team like ours, that’s exactly what the doctor ordered.
I think we’re 2 to 3 years away from an NCAA berth…likely when Geno Thorpe gets here.
Top 25…depends on how Chambers can recruit in the next 5 years.
