17-14- I think we pull off the win at Memphis and easily win at Witchia State. Possible that we lose to Memphis and beat Temple once but either way we will be 17-14 and in the NIT. I'll take it.

Assuming a Gilbert return, I think we win one of the SMU or WSU games on the road in addition to ECU. WSU was really terrible. I'd also like to think that we win one more of the home games, either Cincy or Temple, but I'm less confident of that. So I'll go 16-15, maybe 17-14.

Based on our overall improvements in play over the past few games, I think the most likely outcome is we go 2-3 in that first group of five games and 2-2 in the second group of four games. Final record 17-14.

The optimist in me says we steal one additional game and end up 18-13.

My bet is 1 tournament win, so... I think 20's doable. Might not quite get there, but a 20 win season in year 1 of a pretty significant rebuild is fine by me.

Wow you are kind of pessimistic.
KO would have been expected to have done better than that with 10 returning guys.
Or I would have been calling for him to be fired and I have a soft spot for coaches.
If that happens than it’s an epic fail by Hurley there is no other way to spin it.
(I’m assuming a healthy Gilbert and Adams hasn’t quit the team. )
Every single game on the schedule is winnable. There is not one power team in the AAC especially in road games.
Even Houston or Cinncy at Home are 50-50
I think 19-20 wins is doable.
We have 13 wins
Hold serve we ‘re at 17 than either 2-3 or 3-2 on the road that19 or 20
That’s still not enough for the NCAA without a big AAC run ( finals)

I hope that UConn finishes above .500 so NIT invite is very probable
But they could easily end up 15-16 and with AG and SW, TS that would be no better than the last 2 years except for the fact that the team is much more engaged - which is huge
WSU and SMU are both road games and at places where the home team plays very tough - everyone thinks those are wins, I can only hope
Next year can't come quick enough....

Win 4 of the 9 and go 1 and 1 in the tourney. End the season at 18-15 entering the nit.

A win at Temple tomorrow would be huge. I have it as an L.

Not saying its going to happen but say they went 7-2 with losses to either Temple or Memphis and Houston and picked up 2 wins in the AAC tourney would that be enough to make the big dance?

Huh? No way. They’ll win 18.. I say 5-4 over final 9, sneak 2 in AAC and head to the NIT

I feel we can steal a win at Temple. Memphis and WSU on the road however that sold out hostile crowd now that will be the challenge

The bubble will be really soft so who knows. We'd probably get dinged for lack of quality OOC wins though.

Like the thought, but we are decidedly too far gone at this point for an at large bid. Either way, in your scenario, I don't think we are even in a bubble conversation on selection Sunday without beating Houston twice...regular season and once in the AAC tourney.

No chance. I'm not sure if we went undefeated and lost in the first or second round of the AAC we'd make the NCAA. Performance OOC just doesn't cut it.

I agree with you. It would be HUGE. I am figuring a loss. Temple is very fast. AND, they can drop three's on the run. I hope it is not the case. Heads will spin during the game and wondering why we beat ECU so bad. This may be a nightmare. Especially at their house. Also, this is Fran's last season.
