Surprise Teams

Who's going to be surprise team in college next year? Mine are:

Georgia Tech-With Lawal & Favors, they're going to be great. Also, with some players I believe are better than last year.

UCLA-With Malcolm Lee still there he's going to be a big factor since he doesn't play with Collison or Holiday. They also have a well-rounded PF in James Keefe, and their freshman Tyler Honeycutt.

Ohio State-Big improvement from last year. Evan Turner I except to be one of the best players in college next season. They also have a pretty solid bench.

Cincinnati- They have really

Cincinnati- They have really solid players at each position.  Yancy Gates holding down the post.  Lance Stephenson on the wing. Of course Vaughn running the show.  I would really be surprised if they didn't make the NCAA tournament.

Dayton- I really like Chris Wright..he is a beast.  Dayton is tough & I expect them to make some noise in the tourney again this season.

Virginia- Landesberg is one of my favorite players.  Virginia really didn't lose anybody.  The young guys got a year older.  I expect this team to get more wins this season.  NCAA tourney is still. a reach but this team is improved & it is possible they could get hot

Michigan- Well coached team.  With Manny Harris & Sims this team has a solid backcourt & frontcourt.  They should make a deep tourney run this season.

Ole Miss- Their backcourt is crazy. On offense they will be impossible to guard.

Vanderbilt- They just don't lose many games at home.  I think they make the tourney this year.  Very good defensive team.

Memphis-No one is giving

Memphis-No one is giving them a chance now that Cals left but they are still a very talented team with a very expierienced backocourt and there frontcourt is very athletic. They have arguably the most athletic team in college basketball with 4 players having 40'' plus verticals there only promblem is depth.

I also think UCLA, Georgia Tech, and Cincinnati will surprise people.
