  • AAC Predictions For The Shockers This Coming Season

    Is Lindy's Sports correct on picking the Shockers only 8th? Only Kenny Photo was mentioned to make the 3rd All Conference Team. The Shocker player they mentioned to "keep an eye on" was Jacob Germany. Brian Mull thought Paul Mills should restore the Shocks back to prominence in the ACC, but not overnight due to loosing 4 of our top 5 scorers.

    Lindy's top 8 picks 1. FAU 2. Memphis 3. UAB 4. Tulane 5. N. Texas State 6. E. Carolina 7. SMU 8. WSU

    Soon I will have my top 8. Who are yours??

    Starters. 1. Pg. Cortes or Bell 2. Colby Rogers 3. H. Beverly 4. KP 5. J. Germany
    Shocker basketball will forever be my favorite team in all of sports.

      We're a high ankle sprain from not being able to handle D1 pressure, ball handling wise. I actually think we're capable of competing against most of the AAC (not FAU and Memphis) fairly successfully other than that point.

      I will consider 7 conference wins very good.

        I'm sticking with top 4.

        Pohto and Germany should be significantly better than Pohto and whoever was at the 4 last year. Rojas had some good games late, but he was fairly limited. Should have a significant upgrade at SG. Walton is hard to replace, but Beverly and Rignald should be adequate and probably have better attitudes. Downgrade at PG, but Cortes is a different type of PG than Porter and possibly a better passer with better court vision.

        Coaching looks like a HUGE upgrade. Defense against the Shox shouldn't be "let them shoot 3's" this year.
        The future's so bright - I gotta wear shades.
        We like to cut down nets and get sized for championship rings.

          I like your optimism But as Doc pointed out we are very thin at the point.

            We've been thin at PG ever since Armstead graduated.

                The Almanac, another CBB preview document put together by many contributors, picked the Shocks to finish 6th in the AAC for what it's worth. They also named Colby Rogers to their second team all-AAC lineup.

                Their predicted AAC standings:
                1. FAU
                2. Memphis
                3. UAB
                4. Tulane
                5. North Texas
                6. Wichita State
                7. East Carolina
                8. Rice
                9. SMU
                10. Temple
                11. South Florida
                12. Charlotte
                13. Tulsa
                14. UTSA

                    1. FAU, best of the 3 Owls teams in AAC

                    4. UAB

                    5. WSU 10-8

                        It’s all gonna come down to PG play for us. We have no clue what that’s gonna look like, but if XB is expected to play a significant role at the point, I am concerned.

                          I am clueless this season, but I have high hopes for the following season. That could be a very interesting season indeed based on seniority and an additional recruiting season to close gaps where we are exposed.

                            I think BC will prove to be a fine PG.

                              If Colby had played last year, we would have won more games and not had a new coach. Somehow, the NCAA was looking out for us.
