    Crawford and Moore did the same for Wake. The new rules are extremely friendly to guys who don't really have a shot at getting drafted, but would like feedback.

    Robinson is listed as a 2019 1st rounder on nbadraft.net.

    I do think Robinson has the potential to be a 1st rounder this year, so I get why he's doing what he is. I don't think Bowman does though. That would be just a huge blow to a program finally gaining some momentum.

    I think Bowman is coming back, he's just going to get an evaluation.

    Robinson could leave, which would be a huge blow for BC. I'm not as high on them as you are, but they have the potential to be an NCAAT team next year.

    I think if they both return they'll make it with relative ease. They were only a couple wins away from getting there this year IMO. They had no bad losses this year, and with another year of experience and bringing in a top 50 guy, I think it all sets up for them. I think they have Clemson type potential as far as a team from last year performing to that level the following year. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they ended up on the 5 line. But that is probably their ceiling.

    They're terrible defensively, and their offense isn't consistent enough for me to think they're a lock for the NCAAT.

    I think their ceiling is an 8 or 9 seed in the NCAAT, while their floor is NIT. and tbh, the middle and bottom of the ACC wasn't very good last year. I'm not sure if it will be better next year, but it is worth pointing out.

    I actually think the league will be better/deeper next year. Teams like Virginia Tech, Louisville, FSU, BC, and NC State will be better IMO. And Duke/UNC/UVA/Miami could all be top 15 good. That could help BC next year because they played decent at home this season, outside of the ND game. But the defense does concern me, but man those 2 guards are so good and chatman is a good 3 point shooter in his own right. If Popovic takes another step forward I truly do think that's what their capable of.

    Bennett had a great 2017 class and then he added little in 2018 and 2019.


    He needed to keep it going. UVA could have been a title contender next year if they had recruited better the last 2 classes.

    He has a bunch of recent CB's to UNC.

    Wake also had a recent in-home w/ Wendell Moore. Highly doubt he ends up in Winston, though. Probably UNC bound too.

    Bruce Brown is staying in the draft.

    Should be noted that transfer Miles Wilson from Mt. St. Mary's will be eligible for Miami next year. Averaged 11.8 PG on 44% shooting as a freshman.

    It'll be interesting to see how he plays. Huge step up in competition from the NEC. The year off probably did him good though because he needed to bulk up. Talented kid though. Watched him a good bit at the Mount, with that campus only being about 25 minutes from me. Has a really smooth game.

    I'm always nervous about counting on freshmen to contribute, but Hoard may break that habit:





    Think he'll be a huge upgrade over Terrence Thompson. Believe Wake will be an NCAAT team if Crawford and Moore comeback. If they don't, then 2018/19 will probably be DM's last year.
