    I have not seen this team. They are a one loss top 10 team.

    Contenders or Pretenders?

    Contenders. Really experienced, really well versed in their system, and good talent.

    Isn't just about anyone a contender this year? Good luck with your brackets.

    They are very solid. I've seen them a couple of times.

    They're solid and really fundamentally sound. A contender? Absolutely. Now with as much parity as college basketball seems to have this year, there are a load of contenders for a national title at the moment.

    Contenders for sure. They have two above average playmakers in Baldwin and McDermott and then everyone else knows their role. They defend and rebound well and they don’t beat themselves with fouls and turnovers. They’ll win the big East and be a 1 seed.

    Big east is pretty stacked this year. Butler, nova, seton hall are all obv legit and teams like Marquette, St. John’s, gtown, Xavier, and providence are pretty decent as well.

    Sadly they will probly have more tourney teams than the acc this year. But who knows they are liable to cannabolize themselves and knock each other off the bubble
