OT - General College Basketball 

Post#1 » by PkrsBcksGphsMqt » Thu Oct 18, 2012 11:38 am

The Coaches Poll was released yesterday. Wisconsin starts out at #21 and Marquette receives 8 votes which would put them at #36. Five B1G teams ranked in the top 25, with 3 in the top 5. I think five is about the right number to have in the top 25, but I think the top of the conference is overrated with three in the top 5.

Rank School (first-place votes) 2011-12 record Points Last year's final ranking
1 Indiana (21) 27-9 761 13
2 Louisville (5) 30-10 738 4
3 Kentucky (5) 38-2 718 1
4 Ohio State 31-8 617 3
5 Michigan 24-10 605 22
6 North Carolina State 24-13 581 20
7 Kansas 32-7 563 2
8 Duke 27-7 516 14
9 Syracuse 34-3 502 5
10 Florida 26-11 422 9
11 Arizona 23-12 411 NR
12 North Carolina 32-6 401 6
13 UCLA 19-14 396 NR
14 Michigan State 29-8 391 7
15 Creighton 29-6 325 21
16 Memphis 26-9 307 NR
17 Missouri 30-5 289 11
18 Baylor 30-8 266 8
19 UNLV 26-9 203 NR
20 San Diego State 26-8 196 NR
21 Wisconsin 26-10 191 12
22 Gonzaga 26-7 166 NR
23 Notre Dame 22-12 122 NR
24 (tie) Florida State 25-10 61 15

The looming question this year is, "Can Mbakwe petition for a 7th year?"

Yeah, it's starting to get a little ridiculous with him. I used to be a huge fan of his, but it's getting to the point where I'll be happy when he's finally moved on. The team doesn't need him, we're as deep as we've been since I've been a fan. This year's success will depend largely on the development of Andre Hollins more than anything.

Marquette is now in the lead for JaJuan Johnson, consesus Top 100 player (SG). Also have Jeol Embiid in this weekend. If they end up with those 2 guys, they will have a Top 3 recruiting class.

With an already impressive recruiting class already lined up for 2013, Marquette coach Buzz Williams added another huge piece Thursday when coveted high school shooting guard JaJuan Johnson committed to the Golden Eagles.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pounder from Memphis chose Marquette over Miami and Alabama and announced his choice at his school.

Johnson joins top 100 recruits small forward Deonte Burton and point guard Duane Wilson, as well as top junior college recruit power forward Jameel McKay, in Marquette's class of 2013.
FOX Sports national basketball recruiting analyst Evan Goodman tweeted that with Johnson “Buzz Williams and Marquette now have the fifth-best recruiting class in 2013.”

Just realized Marquette opens up against #4 OSU on Friday. It's part of the 2nd annual Carrier Classic where they play on the aircraft carrier.

Looking forward to this.

I root for Marquette and Wisconsin equally, but how can a "coveted high school" recruit choose Marquette over Alabama and Miami?

EDIT: Meant why no UNC, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky. Heck no Memphis and he's from there neck of the woods.

He's saying why would a "coveted" recruit not have offers from UNC, Duke, Kansas, UCLA, etc.

As someone who just graduated from MU and has tons of debt, it really hurts to see a guy like Mayo just throw it away. He's 21.5 years old and has tutors and advisers on his side, yet he is unable to find a few communication and theater classes to keep above a 1.9? Adios.

The Carrier game just got a ton tougher.

Insert comment about Wisconsin's "boring" and "slow" team not having problems like this.

Wow. That's a shocker. You really have to almost TRY to get below a 2.0 if you're taking the right classes.
I've got a feeling it is gonna be a tough season for both UW and Marquette.

Not sure if they should have gone with the baby blue color for the cammo uni's. Can't wait for the game though.
