    Big 12 announces coaches' all-conference men's hoops team

    DMR Link

    Iowa State was shut out on the coaches’ pre-season all-Big 12 Conference men’s basketball team released today by the league office.

    Kansas’ Brandon Rush and Julian Wright shared preseason player of the year honors. They were joined on the all-conference team by Richard Roby of Colorado, Acie Law and Joseph Jones of Texas A&M, and Jarrius Jackson of Texas Tech.

    Charles Burgess of Texas Tech was the newcomer of the year. Kevin Durant of Texas was selected the preseason freshman of the year.

    Iowa State’s top returning players are Rahshon Clark, Jiri Hubalek and Ross Marsden.

    Practice starts Friday.

    I believe this is only because nobody really knows anything about any of our players. It's a crapshoot to try to predict how well or how bad we will perform this year. Our players could gel and we could have outstanding playmakers develop and we could end up in the top half of the conference, or we will have major growing pains and struggle throughout the season and finish in the bottom half of the conference. I would bet on a mixture of both and say we finish around 6-7th in the conference.

    I think ISU could make the Nit tourney. I would consider that a very successful year this year. I watched their summer league and they have some talent. It will take some luck to make this happen but I personally think that would be a great 1st year.

    Honestly, i may be drinking the Kool-Aid here, but I think that we have a shot (albight a long one) at making the NCAAs. I don't think 5th in the Conference is out of reach either.

    I love the enthusiasm Helgo. I just don't want to get my hopes too high after watching Waynes Mass Destruction of their team last year. But if we made it that far I would be amazed and very pleased with the new coach.

    If ISU made the tourney this year, he would have to be national coach of the year.

    If he wins the Big 12 conf or tourney than I say he's a shoe in for that award.

    If we make ANY tourney, I'd be happy! NIT would be a successful year!

    I check out the schedule, and i see us realistically going 10-3 before conference, but then only winning 5 games at most in conference. But i think 10-3 is very do-able, ill have to reevaluate the conference record after i see everyone play.

    It's so tough to predict with all of the unknowns but if they make it to the NIT I'll feel really good about everything.

    If we won the Big XII Tourney this year I think that he may be able to run for Governor. Not to mention he would start getting national attention to lure him away in his first year. But let's all sober up and realize that with Hilton Magic returning and quick learning taught by a good coach that this year still could be something special.

    I like that everyone thinks we will be terrible this year. We might be able to catch people off gaurd and it's always sweet to prove the critics wrong. I think realistically we'll finish in the middle of the pack in the Big 12 standings and at least Clark will be All Big 12. I think we may have some newcomer and freshman of the year canidates as well.

    Remember the year we made the Elite 8, I think we were picked to finish 10th that year? I'm not saying we are going to be THAT good but if we finished in the bottom 4 of the conference I would be surprised.

    We have a lot of new guys like McIntosh, Taylor, Wesley Johnson, etc who all have the potential to get some kind of conference honors really. I can't wait to get a look at this team.

    BTW, does anyone know if they are going to have the TipOff exhibition this year like they have in the past after a FB game?

    Perhaps a dumb question on my part,

    But, how the hell does one become "Preseason Player of The Year"? It almost seems like a dubious honor. Whether it be football, basketball, or whatever.
