    Unprecedented excitement for ISU men's basketball. I can't wait for the season to start. Now that the Capital City league has finished it's time for us to turn our attention back to real basketball. Let's have it--season predictions, starting rotations, top newcomers, All-Americans!

    Season schedule: http://www.cyclones.com/SportSelect.dbml?&DB_OEM_ID=10700&SPID=4252&SPSID=46663
    2014-2015 roster: http://www.cyclones.com/SportSelect.dbml?&DB_OEM_ID=10700&SPID=4252&SPSID=46664

    My bold predictions:
    • CFH will continue his streak of matching or improving his win total from the prior year.
    • In a more balanced attack, no starter will equal DeAndre Kane's average minutes per game from 2013-2014. Eight players will average 16 minutes or more per game.
    • ISU will improve scoring average and points allowed from 2013-2014.
    • After a single blemish last year, Hilton Magic will be in rare form in an undefeated home season.
    • A strong non-conference schedule and showing keep the Cyclones in the polls all season, culminating in another trip to the Big XII championship game and a 3-seed in the NCAA tournament.
    • ISU will NOT lose to the eventual national champion in the tournament.
    • For the second straight season, the Cyclones will have an All-American on the roster.

    Oddly enough, this is not "preseason" for basketball.
