Entirely depends on which Bone shows up for them I believe.

The one who looks like a backup that Mike D'Antoni would want on his team? Or the one who looks like he wouldn't start for a good D2 school?

If bone can get more games like the first compared to the latter, we will be a nearly impossible to guard team at all positions.

I see many people doubting we can repeat this years results next year. They think we are overrated being in the top ten next year. I think thatís because we tend to win with defense and that can look ugly or seem lucky. I feel a team that wins with D is a more consistent team.

I think we will be just as good in D next year as we were this year. The question is will our offense improve? I think it will as we have several players with room to grow.
Remember we lost several games early in this past season. That wonít happen again. And surely we can find a backup for Alexander.

I see another great season coming. I would like to see us get a post defender and top notch scoring point to add to this team.

Even Barnes knows there are no guarantees. Has stated such.
similar situation in 14-15, returns everybody and brings in Miles turner.
Barely made the tourney and lost in the first round.
Hoping for the best but, who knows.

Let the hype begin (or continue)....

I think this is a little high (although our ranking is more realistic than Auburn's). Unlike another former Memphis beat writer (cough..Wolken..cough), Parrish is fairly impartial towards UT.

I think the team should be in the 12-15 range for the following reasons:

1. Guard play isn't good enough for Top 5 ranking
2. SEC is really tough and we will unlikely have the favorable draw with our league schedule 2 years in a row (we played the bottom 4 teams twice).
3. How do we play as the hunted vs. being the hunter (The Loyola game we were favorites and we had a 30 minute stretch where we looked awful).

Let me know what ya'll think
Agreed. Way too high. When you see what Duke and UK are bringing in, UT doesn't even compare. Kudos for playing over their heads and a heck of a coaching job. It's pretty clear that Barnes is not going to fish in those waters. UT will continue to be a scrappy, pain in the ass. Works for me.
