UNLV belongs in the top 10.

UNLV belongs in the top 10. DeVille Smith, Bryce Dejean-Jones, Jelan Kendrick, Roscoe Smith, and Khem Birch are the starting five. Kendall Smith, Savon Goodman, Chris Wood and Carlos Lopez-Sosa makes for a good bench.

Sure, UNLV underachieved last

Sure, UNLV underachieved last season, but they didn't have players who fit well together. They had too many ball dominant players and poor role allocation. They also weren't good in the leadership department.

I think 2013-14 will be much different. DeVille Smith is a point guard suited for an uptempo game unlike Anthony Marshall. Bryce Dejean-Jones is going to be a stud next year. Jelan Kendrick is a slasher who also has good vision and leadership ability. Roscoe Smith is a good defender and leader. Khem Birch is an excellent shot blocker. Also, all of the players seem to complement each other well.

UNLV will be slept upon to start the season, but they won't be for very long. Just wait until the Arizona game. They will struggle against the press. They're not like Michigan where they have multiple ballhandlers and super offensive efficiency.

So UNLV has players that fit

So UNLV has players that fit well together now but Arizona doesn't? Your whole Arizona struggling against unlv's press argument based entirely on Arizona having a shooting guard as their point guard, what they had last season. Did you even see the backcourt Michigan or Arizona has this upcoming season? Either team would probably crush UNLV this upcoming year.

Don't be surprised when

Don't be surprised when Arizona struggles against the press, especially with Gordon at the three, Ashley at the four, and Tarczewski at the five. Also I never said that Arizona's players don't fit well together. However, they won't beat UNLV in a track meet.

They won't be trying to beat

They won't be trying to beat UNLV in a track meet, Arizona will be one of the most versatile teams in the nation and their lineup will depend on the matchup, there not going to just have Gordon play one position or Ashley play one position. As Jon Rothstein said, Arizona has the potential to be devastating defensively with McConnell, Johnson, Hollis-Jefferson, and Gordon. UNLV will be a testament to that fact.
