OK, with the Niners’ season over and done with, I figured I would share what I believe to be realistic expectations for next season.
First of all, I would expect our overall record to be around 35 and 4. I know, I know, 4 losses sounds like a lot, but with the loss of Leemire, I think it’s possible that we lose 3 or 4 games.
I would expect to go about 15 and 1 in conference play. Again, I look like a pessimist picking us to lose a conference game, but without Leemire leading the way, I think a loss is possible.
As for individual play, I see Lamont Mack emerging as our #1 scoring threat, averaging around 35 ppg. I also think he has the national POY award locked up. It’s pretty obvious that Bowden will average about 25 ppg or so, and run away with national freshman of the year. I see Coley getting about 12 rpg and 7 bpg, and Gaby and Phil each getting around 10 rebounds and 6 blocks per game. Ian will continue to improve, and average around 15 ppg, and the Dijuike Harrity pg combo will average around 25 assist per game.
Bobby Lutz will be the unanimous choice for national coach of the year.
As for the postseason, I see us getting the overall #1 seed in the East regional. A clean sweep of the tourney and a National Title is to be expected.
I see Halton Arena selling out each and every game, and in a non-basketball related note, Norm the Niner Will punch Chapel Hill Phil in the nose, and Take over as Chancellor.
What do you all think of my predictions/expectations? Am I being too pessimistic, or do you think I’m spot on?
Is it November yet!?
