    If the Big East is the Big Pee, pray for whatever the Pac-12 is.

    No doubt.

    They are in the wrong time zone for starters.

    In terms of performing relative to their recruiting, the PAC is easily the worst conference in America. Almost every school except Washington State recruits at a high level but their performance is well below what it should be.

    DiVincenzo and Spellman declare for the draft. I think they'll get 1st round feedback and be gone.

    Can't say I'd be too upset. Can't be too greedy.

    Can't blame DiVincenzo for testing the waters but I think he's one of those great college player types who may find his skill set limited in the NBA. Regardless, you can't blame him for wanting to grab all the cash he can get as his draft stock will never be higher than it is right now IMO.

    Wojo continues to prove why you gotta be patient with him as a coach

    He’s a goddamn savage out there recruiting. If he can get us back to being a top flight BE program on the court. There’s no telling who he may get.

    Got his second man in McEwen. Hopefully the kid works hard defensively in his year off.

    2019-2020 should be a top 10ish roster assuming the roster is what’s expected.

    how about Xavier not being able to split against 'Nova? They looked like they played really tight in the first matchup.
    During the tournament, I had them winning their first 2 games. no more JP Macura.

    Their whole team is back.

    It’s 1 of many great games on this years schedule.

    Also, Xavier loses another key player

    Xavier had the worst couple months of any team not named Arizona.

    Choke in the first weekend, lose their seniors, lose their coach, lose Gates.

    If Xavier has a new head coach, I would not be too surprised! That team should have done better last season!
    Can Creighton bounce back after a disappointing season?

    Can will have a solid team. Getting Krempjl back will be big. But they are lose their two big time scorers as well.

    McDermott doing well reloading.

    This year is gonna be a cluster. Good thing nova is probably losing DD and Spellman cuz otherwise they murder everyone.

    The battle for 2nd could be real entertaining

    DD apparently killed the combine. Looks to be gone.

    Spellman maybe 50/50.

    I've seen DD as high as 18 in mocks. I doubt he was even getting a 2nd round draft grade heading into the tournament. His stock has gone up significantly in the last 2 months.

    He wasn't even a Top 100 recruit and I don't think his stock is going to get higher.

    I see his peak as a poor man's, shorter JR Smith. Sounds bad, but I'm sure he'll take that in a hearbeat.

    Part of the reason is that there's no more allure to staying with the smaller local school. NYC and Chicago are also no longer heads and shoulders above the rest of the nation in talent.

    If you notice the glory years of their programs, they were built with local talent. The model has changed and they need to give recruits a good reason to come to their school.

    That said, both schools have had horrendous coaching.

    SJU is a complete dumpster fire. Mullins can’t keep a roster

    DePaul did just shock the world and get a 5 star

    Doubt he ever makes it to campus tho lol
