Mid December Other 5 hoops report

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.
