could we win the BET even if Napier doesnt hav a great year?
Winning one tournament, even when you have the best team depends upon a lot of factors, including a little luck.could we win the BET even if Napier doesnt hav a great year?
If bazz is bazz we could win. This is a pretty stupid question. It's not like the dude is gonna flat out SUCK. Even if he has not as good of a year as we expect we can still win because we have enough guys+Boatright. It's not like the monstars are just gonna come and take away his skills or something. The only logical question on whether or not we will win the BET is "Will we be better than Lville, Pitt, ND, Syracuse, Marquette, etc... come the nights that the Big East tournament is being played?"
I look forward to reading your posts just to see how you will fit Pitt into them. I also think the rest of this post is insightful.I agree with everything in the post above. I think we will find out how good we can be without a senior leader at the PG spot for the first time in a few years. I am hoping that the PGs only need to take care of the ball- not break down defenses like Kenba did last year. We should have two excellent options with one of the best front courts in the country- and with JL,RS,DD we have players that can get into the paint or shoot over smaller Gs. It will be a completely different team and how well we execute JC's game plan will determine how far we go.
We should crush the earlier season matchups- hit some bumps when we play the Quse's and Lvilles of the world and hopefully get it all together by March. That is why we are not Pitt- they are good- stay good- but do not get that much better as the year goes on (and they of course are now scum).
I can't believe that no one mentioned Ryan Boatright in this thread. By the time the BET is played, he will no longer be a freshman. I expect that he will grow a lot under Napier's instruction, just as Bazz did under Kemba's. I think Ryan will also be a GREAT player for us!
