Darger, Cage and Roberson in the frontcourt

Size will be an even bigger issue that it was this past year, having no player taller than 6’8″. I would expect to see Lon really experiment with the line-up a ton in the early season. I predict a really slow start to this team, not becuase I don’t think they have the talent, ability, or the heart to play well. But rather becuase it won’t be until around early to mid-Jan until Lon can figure out the right line-up and rotation.

Without seeing the schedule, here’s my early prediction:
22-12, including a win in the Mtn. West championship
9th seed in the NCAA’s with a second round loss to Georgetown

Feel free to chime in
