    Expectations for next year

    As we celebrate the Cyclones great season, what are your expectations for next year? I know this is dependent on Royce staying, but where do you see this team finishing next year? I think they end up in second place in the Big 12, get to the finals of the Big 12 tournament and an Elite Eight berth. That may be a lot to ask for, but I think next year's team has that potential, especially if Royce stays . Thoughts, Preguntas?

    If RW stays, it could be the best season of basketball in cyclone history!

    Re: Expectations for next year

    With Royce White there is no limit to what the team can do, with out him - a return to the tournament would be an incredible feat considering this tournament team would be losing its best 3 players. This will likely be the case every year. the better the players CFH attracts, the more "reloading" will need to be done each year.

    Re: Expectations for next year

    If Royce stays, legit shot at a final four. If Royce leaves, legit shot at a sweet sixteen.

    Sweet 16 with Royce would be a good target, anything above that would be gravy. Without Royce making the dance would be good.

    Allot, can happen between now and next year. ( Ex. player defections, injuries, grades, trouble with the law). I just want to enjoy this year, and see what happens next year. This is the same reason I never get to excited about recruiting, allot can happen that is out of our controll.

    Re: Expectations for next year

    Without Royce, it starts to get difficult to find where the points are going to come from?

    Royce, Scotty, and Allen have been our best scorers this entire season. Babb can't hit the broad side of a barn anymore it seems? Lucious is more of a passer, isn't he?

    Of course, Clyburn would be expected to be a scorer, and McGee can light it up at times too. Okoro is known for defense, not offense. Dorsey-Walker looks like he might be able to provide a little scoring? Naz Long looks more like a facilitator than scorer? I think Niang can be a 10+ pts per game guy.

    It will definately be interesting to see. Percy Gibson is going to be a stud before too long as well. So we do have some pieces to work with, it's just a matter of who will step it up?

    Yeah, I think Percy is going to be relied upon a lot more for scoring. And, personally, I think he'll be up to the challenge.

    With Royce, the sky is the limit, and I put nothing beyond this team. Without, an NCAA tournament bid, and who knows what else.

    Re: Expectations for next year

    I expect Hilton to be feared once more. I expect to win every single game we play in Ames.
    I expect to win over 75% of the away games and a return trip to the NCAA.

    Oh and at least a win or two in the Big 12 Tourney next year would be good too.
