  • 2021-22 Expectations for Shocker Basketball – “Summertime Edition”

    So what do we know today, less than 100 days from the "Official Start" of the season:

    who left (players/coaches); who stayed (players/coaches); who arrived (players); what AAC teams have we been paired with for home/away games & who do we only play once; and who are most of our non-conference games against (still 3 to go).

    13 Non-Conference Games
    18 Conference Games
    1+ Conference Tournament Games
    ?+ Post Season

    So what kind of expectations do you see at this point?
    67
    Very Low: 18 wins or less
    0%
    0
    Low: 19 to 21 wins
    1.49%
    1
    Medium: 22 to 24 wins
    40.30%
    27
    High: 25 to 27 wins
    56.72%
    38
    Very High: 28 wins or more
    1.49%
    1

    The poll is expired.

        We are going to have to consistently shoot way better. We can't have games where we struggle to get to 40 or even 30%. That's what has held us back for a really long time.

            I am going with:

            9-4 Non-Conference Games
            14-4 Conference Games
            1-1 Conference Tournament Games
            ?-? Too soon to say if we can get a win in the Post Season (NCAA)

            24-9 Overall

            Go Shockers!!!

              KenPom offensive and defensive ratings the last 6 seasons

              Year, Offensive Efficiency Rating, Defensive Efficiency Rating

              2021: 61, 84
              2020: 117, 8
              2019: 135, 44
              2018: 4, 111
              2017: 13, 13
              2016: 67, 1

              I would love to see a top 30 defensive team and much better rebounding. If we do that, I think this team will be better offensively and the results will follow.

                What is the plus or minus for the number of game we actually get in. Last year we played 22 (13 in AAC play).

                      Noted. When we make the S16, I'll make sure everyone on SN knows that it was in fact you who threw out this seemingly improbable prediction.

                        If their past predictions are any indication we won’t sniff the NIT next year let alone Sweet 16.

                              But doesn't "Should be a great season and I trust at least a second week in the Big Dance for the Shockers." mean you predicted they would make it to the round of 32?
