A Super Early Top 25

Andy Katz posted his early predictions for next year's top 25, and Mr. Katz has the Flyers ranked 23rd. 

Here's what he has to say: "The Flyers were second to Xavier this season, and next season might be more of the same. That's OK. That shouldn't keep them out of the Top 25. Dayton will be one of the more experienced teams with Chris Wright, Marcus Johnson and Rob Lowery, the latter two rising seniors. Dayton coach Brian Gregory doesn't have superstars, but he has players who understand his system and are winners."

Nice to see a little early hype for what has the potential to be UD's best season in a long time.

Former UD Assistant Now a Head Coach

Shaka Smart was an assistant at UD while I was there, and now he's the head coach at VCU. That's really all I have, but it's sort of relevant to this blog.
