Ranked 12th in the Big Ten in this recent ranking.
Roster looks under whelming for this typically strong program. On paper it appears we have a legit shot.
I don't think the direct link was ever posted here. We are the top rated BW team. A good summary to look at...only error is Tobias is still listed.
For our team stats, four glaring weaknesses, 3 pt shooting was horrible as was team FTs, turnovers as usual way too high, and team defense. I get it with the opened up offense we'll give up plenty of points and have our share of TOs, but I hope Jadon is fully healed up his perimeter defense should help, and his 3 pt shooting yeah he's hot and cold but should be a 35%+ guy. Messiah and Silva can hopefully tamp down the TOs, I feel much more confident in them compared to outta control Tone.
Who else besides Jadon can seriously hit 3's? Tsohonis has an uncanny knack to get his line drives to fall but shouldn't take more than 4 a game. Messiah has decent stats, same as Silva but none of them are 3 pt killers. Polynice? I hope he can hit 2 or 3 a game that would be a nice weapon.
#1 improve the team defense, this is something achievable, and LA I hope is the coaching key to defense. Next work like mad on FT shooting. Hope as a team we can hit 3's. Let er rip on offense and hope to TOs don't add up as much. The rebounding should be top 25, the Traores the top rebounding duo on the nation. Scoring offense should be a no brainer top 25.
#78? I don't know about that. UCSB #106 is next, UCI #127 next. List only goes to #59 currently. I don't see any of our non conference opponents in it, yet. Love the high rating, but just hoping at least around #100 and get hot at the end instead of withering up when it counts.
