So, at the beginning of last year I said that the 2010-2011 year was “tourney or bust” as far as ED as a head coach goes. ED succeeded and got our school back to the NCAA’s (finally). So he’s bought himself a few years to build up our squad…and seemed to nail a very solid transfer and decent recruiting class as well. Next year, we begin life without Talor, Drew, DJ and Jeff…basically a whole new starting 5 with the notable exception of Timmy. On the surface, this looks like a rebuilding year which could be quite painful at times. After some thought however, and the transfer of Juwon Staten to go with really solid recruits like Ross Travis and Trey Lewis…I do not think it is unreasonable to expect some form of post season basketball next year. The year after, I believe we should be a definite post season team with Staten on the floor.
NCAA tournament is probably very unlikely. However, I do not think it is out of the realm of possibility to expect a CBI/lower NIT seed next year. What are your thoughts on the team? Do you have any expectations for the them?
