Ok. What makes us a bubble team? Better bigs. Better depth. Loss of AR is huge. No doubt

But we will be top half of big 12. Thatís not bubble.

Way better than a bubble team. Borderline top 25 IMO
Going to be excellent defensively.

Honestly I project a similar outcome to what we saw this year. I think this team has the potential to be more consistent then last year. So they will likely finish a little better in conference/nationally and be a 2nd round/sweet 16 team.

Looks like a huge win for Moser's first year to me.

If we get Bryce Thompson all bets are off. We could be a top 15 type team.

We should have a top 10 defense. No question. I worry about our ability to generate consistent offense, especially against teams that can give T groves trouble or those that pack it in. Besides Gibson, whoís going to shoot from outside.

All freshman bench in the backcourt has me a little worried. I agree that Bryce Thompson would change our trajectory, both because of what he brings and because it will send a starter level player to the bench, which transforms our backcourt depth.

A lot of good role players, but somebody will have to step up as a star to do any damage in the tourney. I don't think we have anybody I would confidently put in the running for All-conference -- hope somebody surprises me.

I think he'd be huge for this time. I know some have soured on him, but I haven't.

Guards going from Reaves and Harmon to whatever we roll out will likely be a pretty big downgrade. And we werenít too half of Big 12 this year.

As of this moment, I would say you are correct. Let's see what happens with that last scholarship. Coach Moser really needs to get the best offensive player possible.

Harkless and tanner groves can be those guys.

Harkless can be if he improves significantly on offense. I don't know enough about Groves to say.

It would be great if Noland is good enough to start as a Frosh. Although finding a way to slot Bryce in there would be fantastic. Question is, would you slot Bryce in for Noland, or would you roll with 1 post and slot him in for Ethan?

Either. Depending matchups. Noland can defend a small 4.

I like it. Optionality. Now all we need is to land Bryce. Fingers crossed.

Yes we're losing Reaves and Harmon, but this team should have better ball movement and offensive system where we don't have to relay on individual players as much as last year. This team should have more balanced scoring than last year.

Iím hoping....

Lots of standing around letting reaves or another guard take the ball to the whole. Now, it wasnt bad all the time but Iíd like to see more production from other guys as well.

Iím excited to see how it all plays out.

The current roster really sets up so well to fit Bryce in, need offense and playmaking. I have a good feeling...

Reaves sometimes took over when no one else was scoring much and at such times, it's nice to have a guy who can do that. Spreading around the scoring opportunities sounds great, as long as everyone can convert a decent percentage of their opportunities.

Tanner Groves scored 35 points, Jacob Groves had 23, against Kansas last season. They were a combined 9 of 16 from three point range.

Yes, I know that was one special performance in a NCAA tournament game. My point is, do you guys really believe next yearís team will struggle to score? I certainly donít.

Every year I hear that we wont be able to score next year. I think we will be fine.

I don’t see chargois or Noland starting. Hill is a better player than chargois. The last guard in the portal needs to be able to start.

LK was very high on Noland as an all around player. He should play early as he has a college body already. I've been told Goldwire is limited scoring but fantastic on defense and very good at distributing the ball.
I'm worried about OSU with Thompson. However if he looks at them their whole team is guys that play similar to him. He we have a great need for a scorer and extra ball handler.
