The Sporting News is putting out their preseason top 25 for the upcoming basketball season. The Bearcats come in at number 18. Here is the write up.
|This is one of the deepest and most physical teams in Division I. Having a warrior such as Jaquon Parker to play small forward shows how rugged this team can be. He averaged 5.6 rebounds and pulled down double figures against Florida State’s nasty frontcourt. Becoming a serious Final Four contender will require juicing the offense. That will start with pushing the ball more frequently in transition and using the abundance of solid bench players to great effect. — Mike DeCourcy|
Louisville at number 2 and Syracuse at number 7 are the only Big East teams ranked above the Bearcats. Notre Dame was the only other BE named picked for the list. Basketball season is quickly approaching. It's going to be a lot of fun. I can not wait.
