    Could this team be better than last years?

    Really impressive for a young team this early in the year.

    Re: Could this team be better than last years?

    So far, this team is way more mentally tough than the past two years. They rebound with tenacity, play good D in spurts, can score in the paint at will, have closed out two BIG games early on on the year.

    The only thing that they lag obviously is 3 pt shooting.

    Re: Could this team be better than last years?

    I think the team is a lot better than the last two years as well, I could see this team getting to around 24 wins in the regular season. We play well on both sides of the ball (well defense is in streaks yet) but that still beats rarely playing it in the last couple of years. Were still getting killed on the glass by teams that have height, hopefully something gets figured out like last year in that department. Great athletic, high basketball IQ team this season.

    With Naing being a year older and more mature, he is a game changer. We replaced Sr's with two freshman and Naz playing big minutes...so no we will not.

    Re: Could this team be better than last years?

    Morris needs a lot of room to grow. Thank god Kane is a beast. Niang at best is the same as last year. Ejim the same or slightly better. Thomas looked like be was really stepping it up. Hogue is a scrappy beast. Naz is obviously improved though a bit cold tonight. He needs to work on his penetration skills.
    Should be a fun year

    And it's not that close either. Kane just so much better with the ball. Only thing Clyburn has on Kane is he probably was a better shooter.

    No reason to believe they couldn't be better.

    No doubt. At this point I will be disappointed with anything less than the elite eight

    Re: Could this team be better than last years?

    I want to believe.

    But like a true cyclone fan, ive got my cup firmly in place as the season goes on.

    This team is unquestionably better than the november team of 2012 and 2011. If this team improves between now and january 1 at the same rate those teams did.... look out.

    Yes. As it has been said before, this team has mental toughness, which goes deep in March. It's going to be a fun year.
