    Big 12 Basketball Pre-Season Picks

    Just a couple days out from the first practices. Let's get some pre-season picks going. (Ranking 1-12 in Conference Picks.)

    Big 12 Regular Season:

    1.Jayhawks
    2.Longhorns
    3.Sooners
    4.Wildcats
    5.Cyclones
    6.Cowboys
    7.Aggies
    8.Bears
    9.Tigers
    10.Red Raiders
    11.Cornhuskers
    12.Buffaloes

    I see the Clones getting to a 23-8 mark on the year.....that includes at least 2 victories in the Big 12 Tourny. I see us getting a 7 seed in the NCAA's and a loss in the 2nd Round of the Big Dance. (A nice little year as the Basketball program gets back on track.)

    Teams that make it in the NCAA's: KU, Texas, OU, K-State, ISU and OSU.

    NIT Bound: A&M, Baylor and Missouri.

    Oh, and this guy is going to dunk it in a lot of people's faces.

    Those look like pretty good picks. I hope we can get fifth in the conference. If we do we will be going to the Big Dance.

    I have a bad feeling a lot of Clone fans are way to high on expectations this season...

    Putting a lot of improvement on people who havent played a big 12 game yet....did we have the same expectation for Lucca.

    I would be pleased with 6th, think we will end up in 7th and hope for 5th.

    Agreed, we have one proven player.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    As every year! Just wait until we beat a few cupcake teams early on, then see how high expectations get.

    I don't remember how highly regarded the Willoughby-Pratt-Cato team was as far as recruits, but keep in mind that surprises can go both ways. Wasn't the Tinsley-Fizer team picked last in the preseason?

    Brackins 1st Team All Big 12, Big 12 Player of the Year... 22pts 10rbs, Gilstrap 15pts and Garrett 3 to 1 Assist/TO ratio

    Can't wait to see how they do against some top 10 teams like Duke and Cal before starting Big 12 play. And I look for ISU to go 3-0 this year for in-state games. GO STATE!

    I don't think 5th is out of the question by any means, and I'm not sure why anyone would think so. Brackins is a star. We have kids with solid Big 12 experience to go along with him, and the additions of preseason newcomer of the year Gilstrap, a nice guard like Colvin and a transfer like Christopherson (sp?), and you have the makings of a much improved team.

    Re: Big 12 Basketball Pre-Season Picks

    Missouri lost a ton a big-time players...as did A&M....there is room to go and get in the Top 5. Heck, even Baylor lost some big players...this is why I think we get in the top 5. These are all the middle teams and I see us getting through these games..... You throw in the fact that we should beat NU and CU twice each too....and you have a lot of In-Conference wins = about 5th in Conf.

    Teams to worry about are OSU and K-State.....they could be solid..(but at least we get K-State twice.)

    Add two wins in the B12 Tourny.....and we could be dancing.
