Too early to start a 2018-19 Basketball thread?

I see more question marks than some of the season previews and rankings I've seen.  Not saying we can't be a top 25 team, but I need to see some pieces to fall into place before I feel confident that we are at that level. 

 

Glass half full: This is the most talented roster we've probably ever had.  

 

Glass half empty: In tough situations last year, it was very often Kenrich or Vlad that came through in the clutch - on both ends of the court.  Replacing their intangibles will be very tough.

 

My outlook: Fisher, Bane and Noi absorb most of the scoring punch lost from graduation, and especially with the double-barrelled PG action back in effect the Frogs can score with just about anyone.  But it'll come down to what the new big guys can do on defense.  I think they all have pretty high ceilings, but I don't know how ready any of them are for the meat grinder that is the Big 12.

If TCU plays Georgetown, I literally do not know for whom I should root.  We Hoyas used to really hate that Jamie Dixon villain.  I hope we (Frogs) get St. Johns or Nova and then there won't be a problem.

TCU basketball trivia:

 

Who is the only TCU basketball coach since 1935 to have 4 consecutive years with a winning record in conference play? Answer might surprise.

 

 

 

Good question.  Iba don' Moe the answer...

One of our favorite former S-T TCU beat reporters has a story about KW in Sptspage today.

 

TCU | Carlos Mendez
Enjoy the Kenrich Williams story
Enjoy the Kenrich Williams story. The next TCU player to reach the NBA probably won’t have that kind of tale.
