Based on incoming recruiting classes...who is your preseason Final 4?
Here is mine
Texas- Bradley and Hamilton are beast and both should start as Freshman
Kansas- Aldrich and Collins are coming back and they will get either Stephenson or Henry
UNC- Ed Davis returns and they get 5 McDonald's all-Americans.
UCLA- With or Without Holiday. They bring back alot of talent and there also in the mix for Stephenson..
Give me your Final 4. Tell if you agree or disagree
I agree with Texas Kansas and UNC , but id choose a different team than Ucla. How about Minnesota Theyll be really good next year?
I agree with Kansas, and Texas. UNC is my team but I don't see them returning, unless Lawson and Ellington both return. I don't think UCLA will be better than they were this year. I would put Villanova and Michigan State (they return almost everyone back).
I like your choice in texas they should be a solid team next year. II like UNC and also Kansas. I predict Texas to win it all(because i live in texas). But the final four will be like this
Texas, Kansas, UNC, and Villanova
Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, Wake
KU has shown they are a legit tourney team and Sherron Collins is going to have a Lawson-like season.
UK has Patterson returning along with great recruiting class that could still be highlighted by adding the great John Wall.
Duke isnt losing much(Henderson, Paulus) 4 returning starters and great frontcourt freshman class adding some height.
Aminu will compete for Nat'l POTY now thatr he doesnt have to share the ball with JJ and Teague still may return
I think Duke will be good during the regular season but just like in recent years they will choke in the tournament.
I dunno. I wanna change UCLA with Kentucky but cant. I think UCLA will be one of those teams will like " 8 to 10 players averaging between 13 to 8 ppg"
UK will be good...i think more elite 8 than final 4.
Michigan State - They don't lose anyone.
North Carolina. Yea they lose Ellington, Lawson, Hansborough and Green but they will still be killer. They have Larry Drew II at point, Marcus Ginyard, who would have started this year if it wasn't for injury, Deon Thompson and Ed Davis who might be on of the best front court duo in America, plus Tyler Zeller who will be a beast as well.
And #4 is up in the air for me.
I think Texas is too young. Purdue is killer on paper but they lack toughness. I wish Scottie Reynolds would stay for Villanova cuz they would be a lock in my opinion for the Final Four.
I would love to say Michigan.... They're my team and I think they can make it far in the tournament with Sims and Harris but its not going to happen. Maybe Sweet 16 and possibly Elite 8.
kansas- collins and aldrich
texas- I think bradly will be 2nd in voting for freshman of the year under john wall and they have hamilton coming. Also, james and pitman are back.
Michigan state- don't lose anyone and made it to championship last year
kentucky- wall, henry, and patterson best trio in college and callapari is coach
Kansas: Aldrich Collins, Morris Twins
Villanova: Return most of final 4 team plus great recruiting class. Look for 4 guard offense w/ Yarou at center.
Texas: Pittman, James, and Avery Bradley
North Carolina: Davis, Ginyard, Thompson, Henson, Larry Drew 3
Henry is going to Kansas not Kentucky.
I think he meant to say Cousins
I think i wanna change my Final 4
Those are my new Final 4
Are you kidding me? They go from the NIT to the Final Four. I don't think so. I don't care who they have coming in and who there coach is. We've never seen Wall or Cousins play in college, they might not live up to the hype. I do think if Meeks and Patterson come back that they have a chance to win in the TERRIBLE SEC and to get in the tourney but the Final Four is just pushing it.
Listen..KU was a couple of wins from a NCAA tourney bid
If Wall, Cousins and Orton are legit, they will be a Final 4 team.
texas - they wont have abrams shooting 4 - 16 anymore and atchley wont be sucking d*** all over the court anymore
kentucky - calipari had the best recruiting class of the year, quit his job and went to another school and still brought in the best recruiting class. enough said
kansas - much as i hate them the big 12 champ will prob determine if texas or kansas gets the number 1 seed
villanova - reynolds is a great leader, they have a great bench, their only significant loss is cunningham, i think they beat unc in the elite 8 to make it to the final four.
Georgia tech is a very good team in my mind they lost no one and added Derick Favors i dont see how u can leave them out of the mix here??
