    If White returns is ISU a top 5 or top 10 team next year?

    entering into the season?

    With White and Lucious its really going to be tough for teams to guard ISU even more so next year....

    If a team is going to do a full press court, well good luck against White and Lucious as you might of well pack your bags...

    If White returns, no way we aren't top 20.

    I think we might be ranked top 25 preseason, but who knows. I'd just hope it wouldn't end up like Texas A&M where they have high expectations and then end up with only 4 wins.

    Entering? No chance. Those will be your Duke, KU,UK,UNC and the others that occupy that year in and year out

    ...not sure where I saw it, but some sportswriter did mention that ISU could be a top 10 pre-season "if" Royce comes back.
    And with the rest of the team that defines the well-oiled-machinery that "IS" the Iowa State Cyclones men's basketball team... no reason we can't start out with a single digit next to our name. I'm just waiting to find out if we're going on another European BB trip, or perhaps a pre-season NIT. Whatever happens, we will be very tough to beat!

    I'm guessing we could be about a #14 at best

    We'll have the talent but not the ranking in the beginning.

    Back in 1996 we were ranked #3 or #4 for a brief time before that Marquette loss. I could see us top 10. Not sure to start, but if we get into the top 25 preseason, it is a lot easier to move up.

    You can only go on one Overseas trip per 4 years so that is a no. And we are doing that Las Vegas tourney that UNC was in this year.

    I realize that we got high rankings with the 2000 and 2001 teams, but the 1996-97 team got ranked fairly early and faded a bit, then of course made the sweet sixteen. Just to say, it's possible.

    Is this your own thread within a thread?

    That is true, (I forgot about the overseas thing) But do we know who else is going to be in that desert classic? (or w/e they call it?)

    Probably looking at preseason top-15 or top-20, post-season top-5.

    Just realized I should explain myself after the initial post before the jackals jumped in.

    Someone posted UNLV, Cincinnati, and Oregon. Pretty decent field.
