Honestly SLU and Dayton will be the teams to beat. SLU has Collins and Perkins returning and Dayton returns basically everyone from one of the best squads of freshmen in the nation. I think we can compete with them for a title but it really depends on how well this team gels early on. I think some of the things they’re doing off the court (like attending the Loveday games together) are really good for chemistry.Hard to argue that SLU and Dayton will be the heavy favorites. I hope we gel and surprise. If we do not finish top 4 I think we need to start taking a look at the coaching/support areas (not necessarily MR). With all the talent we supposedly bring in I am a bit concerned that we keep getting leap frogged by other teams.
