A HUGE thing people donít Consider: AJ Davis is top 5 in the country In defensive win shares. Which is elite.

Itís not just tacko, the whole of UCF have become elite defenders

I don't doubt that one bit. However, Tacko allows for UCF to play D in ways most other teams cannot. They don't need to worry about getting beat off the dribble as much. They might even want to get beat off the dribble when he is in. I remember when we had Kmart...we didn't mind funneling players into the lane.

This looking like a two bid league.

I can't see that happening. They would have to do that and run the table in the league which they won't. The AAC is just too weak on paper. If you UC get another unprotected seed you can thank the league again.

I agree, especially if they can beat any 2 of SMU, Wichita and UC at home.

SMU or UCF have a decent shot of sneaking in but I don't think both will.

I would love to make that bet! Will get swept by both UC and Witchita. Then what, Best wins against Arkansas and Wake. On paper their resume is putrid.
