Late Entry Note/29 Jan 09.
Marquette will lose its’ 3 guard Sr led offense and a PF – the majority of its’ offense.
Michigan is quietly falling back in the Big -10, but good experience for next season.
Baylor and FSU are holding serve in their respective conferences and should be better
next season. Excellent talent.
Alabama lost Steele, then fired their coach. Excellent talent. New System-rebuilding next year?
“X” will be strong next season – as usual.
Iona…need to do some research… will be bottom tier at this event
