Basketball Conference Games - W Prediction

Postby GreenLantern » Tue Nov 14, 2017 5:47 pm

Go on record with your bold prediction. Winner gets a trip to Didneyland. Loser (worst prediction) gets GOTULA.NET BASKETBALL GOAT-OF-THE-YEAR AWARD and widespread scorn from everyone.

I predict that we have one win and one loss against: Tulsa, Memphis, Houston, and ECU; we sweep USF; we lose all other games for a total record of:

W 6- L 12
NIT - NO
NCAA - NO

No it's not good. Yes, it's a seachange.

I think we squeeze out 10. My hope is based on how the team played down the stretch last season. They gave everyone fits. I think this team is way more advanced than that one. How they handle adversity like a bad stretch of games will be key. I'm hoping to have a similar finish and maybe steal a game or 2 late.

I picked 7-8 conference wins. We may have an NBA offense (which I dislike, as I hate the NBA) but we also have an NBA defense, in other words, very little D. This team has a tendency to heave up a 3 way too early in the shot clock and doesn't threaten the rim nearly enough. We're a big team, but don't play big. Some nights we'll look good, other nights we're going to get our jock straps handed to us.

I went with 7-8. Another 7 non-conf wins, so a 14 win season. Definitely an upward trend.

This is going to be — probably — the toughest league schedule we have played in 15 years maybe, since pre-2003 CUSA with Louisville, Marquette, Cincinnati, etc.

Losses: @Temple, SMU, @Memphis, @SMU, @ECU, Temple, @Tulsa, @Houston, Memphis, @wichita, Cincy, @UCF
Wins: Tulsa, UConn, Houston, USF, ECU, @USF

I’d note that the line between us being good enough to win 6 games and good enough to win 11-12 is actually pretty thin. It all depends on how tough we play on the road, and maybe weather our perimeter shooting can get us a home upset against Cincy, SMU, or Temple. But I’ll say 6 for now.
