MU Season Preview from NBA Draft Express

A thorough preview of MU appeared yesterday on NBA Draft Express, which is doing a thorough preview of each Big East team. Overall their experts pick MU to finish 12th in the Big East, just behind DePaul and just ahead of Providence. According to Jonathan Watters, "This is one of the tougher teams to figure out in the new Big East. Crean's program has gone through a rough couple of seasons, though it hasn't been for a lack of talent........This year's roster has all sorts of new faces, but the competition level will be a dramatic increase. There is plenty of talent here..."

The preview here is sound and up to date - - - he even notes the recent McFarland visit. Good work.

In their conference-wide preview, MU's Dominic James is the pre-season Newcomer of the Year. Jerel McNeal was selected as a second team all-newcomer.

BTW, since the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel forgot to mention it, please remember that today is Big East media day - - the links from Monday's post can help you view the activities online today, and include a schedule of television and radio appearances by many Big East coaches.
