So a recap to the schedule (im not including dates):
OSU
NKU
Xavier
UCLA
@Miss State
George Mason
Ole Miss/Baylor
@UNLV
NC Central
Western Michigan



Im really really happy with this schedule so far. We only have room for 3 buy games that we can control. And NC Central while it was trash last season, could still be much better next season and its the worst team we play.

Our schedule lines up to our advantage as UCLA and OSU are home games. .We can beat Miss St at their place.

It will be cool if Shaq comes to the game @ UC



I'm sure we are all thinking that our upcoming team wont be as good as the previous two years, but it's still solid. I mean, I would take this team over the SK senior year team, and they ended up #7 in the country at one point. Would everyone agree?

NC Central returns 4 starters from NCAA team and ranked #140 in this preseason poll.

Very happy with this schedule. This is what we should shoot for every year. Obviously we aren't going to be able to have teams like OSU and UCLA at our place every single season, but I like the bump up to 8 from the usual 6 P5/A-10/MWC level teams on our schedule, plus the quality buy games so far.

Biggest "concept" stressed at a Cincinnati practice? NO LAYUPS for the opposition. Play is stopped when someone gives us an easy basket.

another offseason working on defense

Donít you think itís crystal clear UC wont be very good on offense after unexpectedly losing Evans? So instead of working on nothing but offense which has a ceiling based on personnel you instead focus at this teams strength and defense is clearly that. Synergy grades every returning players as very good or excellent defenders.

I don't know. I mean we have had back to back unbelievable seasons with great teams. This year won't be like that but there's still some talent and scorers.

This probably isn't the right thread, but where does everyone think this team will stack up. Top 3 Cronin teams are obviously the sweet 16 year and the 2016-2017 2017-2018 teams, but where would this upcoming year be? Obviously time will tell but lets not act like we are going to be awful.
