    2021-2022 Overall Rank: #61
    Conference Rank: #4 American

    The 11-6 record does not look like much, but SMU had a very good season. Their only losses before the NIT came against Houston, Cincinnati and Memphis. On February 8th the Mustangs were sitting at 11-4. They did not play again for over a month, but nearly knocked off Cincinnati in their AAC Tournament opener. They went on the road in the NIT and nearly upset Boise State. Those were a couple tough losses to end the year, but after a month off nearly beating Cincinnati and Boise State is not a terrible way to head into the 2021-2022 campaign.

    Projection:
    Three starters are back and they will form the heart of this team. Kendric Davis was the team’s top scorer last year, averaging 19.0 points, 7.6 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals. The point guard is a consistent outside shooter and can obviously attack the basket and finish or find one of his teammates. Emmanuel Bandoumel led the team with 28 made three-pointers and tallied 10-.2 points per game. Isiah Jasey started 15 games in 2020-2021. The 6-10 forward is not a major scoring threat in the paint, but he is a tough rebounder and a solid shot blocker. Three of the five Division I transfers will join Jasey in the frontcourt. Tristian Clark was a major force at Baylor until a knee injury ended his 2018-2019 season after just 14 games. He has never really gained his pre-injury form, but will get one more chance at SMU. Marcus Weathers spent the last three seasons starting at Duquesne. Last season he averaged 15.3 points and 7.5 rebounds. Franklin Agunanne will add more depth after seeing limited playing with Loyola Chicago. The newcomers in the backcourt have less minutes to go around, but both Zach Nutall and Michael Weathers will still make a big impact. Nutall is a prolific scorer and averaged 19.3 points per game with Sam Houston last season. Michael Weathers will again rejoin his brother Marcus. They began their collegiate careers together at Miami (OH). Michael has since gone to Oklahoma State and Texas Southern before landing at SMU. At Texas Southern last season he averaged 16.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.0 blocks. Coach Jankovich has done a good job of filling the holes on his team and this group should have plenty of depth. But with so many new pieces, another trip to the NIT would be a good season for SMU.

    Projected Postseason Tournament: NIT
    Well this is. clearly wrong. SMU should not have been listed before WSU was listed. Athlon basketball 2021 yearbook picks SMU to finish 3rd in the AAC and WSU is picked 4th. SMU has a significantly better recruiting class coming in this year with high school players and outstanding transfers. The Shocks recruiting is not ranked good.

    As I have stated before, .many fans and the media believe the Shocks got lucky last year because they didn't have to play SMU. They say it was a fluke. Heck the shocks couldn't even guard ALO for Memphis. No way they can guard Kendrick Davis or Emoni Bates for Memphis. . And although Jank is not a good defensive coach, the Drake Bulldogs have shown everyone that all you have to do to beat the Shocks is play a Box and 1 on TE. Game over. !!!!!! Plus with the reputation of our soft Frontline, no way the Shocks can compete with SMU, Memphis or Houston.

    The fairy tale is over. This is the real world . Shocker Coaches, players, and fans must face the facts. We must accept our place in society and be happy we get 1 more year to play in a real league. Bluebloods and Gary Parrish demand that " " WSU has got to know its limitation. "

      College sports Madness hasn't listed WSU yet .. so WSU is ranked higher according to them.

                Looks like a few folks need to recalibrate their meter.
