Nope. He took a pay cut for the nicer location

In a very surprising bit of news, Houston's Armoni Brooks is STAYING in the draft which means they have now lost 4 of 5 starters from last year's team.

Hopefully the bottom of the conference will be a little better this year.

Tulane brought in KJ Lawson (Kansas), Jordan Walker (Seton Hall), Christion Thompson (Rhode Island), and Nic Thomas (Norfolk St) along with four freshmen. They also get Ray Ona Embo back.

East Carolina is completely overhauling their roster with 11 new players around AAC freshmen of the year Jayden Gardner and Shawn Williams.

And they landed a 7ft center who we were also at least checking in on

American Conference teams ranked by percentage of returning scoring for 19-20:

1. South Florida (92.4%)
2. Temple (66.1%)
3. UConn (65.1%)
4. Cincinnati (58.2%)
5. ECU (56.5%)
6. Tulsa (52%)
7. Wichita State (50.8%)
8. SMU (47.2%)
9. Houston (39.4%)
10. Memphis (26.7%)
11. UCF (19.7%)
12. Tulane (13.1%)


Can't necessarily predict the league's standings based off this but it at least gives a point of reference for what other teams return compared to us.

What I read from that is the top 4 isn't going to be Houston/Cincy/UCF/Wich St at all.

Teams that have't finished top 4 in the last 4 years include Memphis, UConn, USF - one of them surely will be top 4, maybe 2 of them. I think USF wins 11-12 games this year in conference.

I agree with your second statement a little more than your first. Memphis, UConn and USF will assuredly finish higher in the league standings next year than they did in 18-19. It's reasonable for each of those teams to legitimately aspire to reach the NCAA tournament next season.

Of the other group, I think UCF is the only team you can really count out at the moment. Houston still returns a very solid core from last year that should make an adequate step up into larger roles. For us and Wichita, I think both teams will improve their collective talent compared to last year despite both losing 5-6 scholarship players. Both teams have as good of arguments for top 4 as any other.
