It is safe to say this writer forgot to perform any due diligence thus throwing his credibility into question. Hopefully Shaq appeals and wins but absent that he will not be playing. His overall outlook on Cincinnati was fairly accurate. They could finish top 3.
"Rakeem Buckles (6.8 ppg) will be the man in the backcourt."
Buckles in not a backcourt player. He is a 6-8/210 forward who scored 20pts against Cal in the 1st round of the NCAA tourney the year before last. He also grabbed 9 boards in that game. This writer is awful. JMHO of course.
Louisville could be a #1 seed in the tourney. Maybe in Boston.
