Other5= AAC, CUSA, MAC, MWC, & SUNBELT
AAC- SMU handled Michigan easily, but their banned from the post-season. Memphis has been slowly recovering with strong efforts from KJ Lawson and tonight’s Ol Miss game will show if they’re going to hang tough this season. Temples terrible start is a head scratcher.
CUSA- WKU and Marshall have stumbled more than I anticipated. La Tech has some easier games to recovered from the Ol Miss spanking. Perrin Buford and his fellow MTSU Blue Raiders appear to be serious contenders.
MAC- Akron & NIU remain steady in pre-conference games. Kent St faces SMU Dec 22. Can Kellon Thomas lead them to an upset win?
MWC- New Mexico has struggled against the stronger conferences . Its two losses are to USC and Purdue, and they face auburn Dec 22. Maybe Fresno St who played Arizona tough takes the conference?
SunBelt- I’ll stick with Ark-LR and UTA as pre-season favorites with a passing nod to Ethan Montalvo and the Tx StBobcats.
