My goal would be at least 12-13 wins. It all depends on Jarron. If itís Jarron of this year, 10 wins. If itís Jarron of last year, 14-15 wins

Based on what I've seen up to this point I'm going with 11-7 (and needing an automatic bid to make the NCAA tournament). If we improve and play like we have the potential to, I could see us getting to 13-5 (bubble team), but we are starting to run out of time.

Hopefully 10days off will do wonders getting Cumberland more up to speed, getting people mentally straight, and people on the same page. We might not turn it around this year but I think we've seen glimpses and with recruiting seeming to be on the up compared to previous years I think we'll be okay going forward.

I do think this team has been playing somewhat better. I'm still holding out hope they can improve more. Maybe that's crazy, but I would take 13-5 right now. I feel like 13-5 gets us in easy. Too many bad teams this year and they have to get 68 teams.

A 13-5 AAC record alone will not get us into the tournament. At the moment we have 7 potential Q1 games in league play. If we lose 5 of those, our poor record in Q1 games (let's say it's 2-8) will likely not even put us firmly on the bubble for the tournament.

We need to come with a Tennessee caliber effort and execution night in and night out in the AAC to get the wins needed for a potential at-large bid.

I think the inconsistent play that has marred our season so far will still rear its ugly head in conference play and we finish 11-7.

If we can start 4-0 and get some early road wins though, I'd be much more optimistic about our chances in a lot of those Q1 games as they come about.

8-8 seems right with a semis loss in the conference tourney, doesnít mean Iím given up on Johnny brannen, but it will take 2 years til he gets us back to the NCAA tourney

I think 13-5 gets us in easy. Everyone sucks this year.

Iím am very curious how this team can improve over the next 10 days. If Jarron can finally get healthy. Can Harvey not look completely lost? Can MAW continue to improve? We have a tough game to open up conference. After that it gets easier for a few games. UConn is a big one.
