    Bellarmine and Quincy the favorites according to the poll, both very good teams. The East looks loaded with at least five teams possibly in the hunt for the NCAA Tournament. Quincy and Drury are the only two in the West really a threat.

    Think they are giving BU too much respect, I am afraid. BU might still win the East but I sure wouldn't have them as heavily favored as that poll.

    Yeah, even putting aside these recent injury rumors, I fear our beloved Knights may take some lumps this season. Will be fun to watch, though, and I can't wait.

    I thought USI was supposed to be dead last.

    The only people who said USI would be dead last are the Herdes-ites. I believe USI is vastly underrated at fifth, and I see them finishing in the top 3. If Rajala and Dickson produce, I could see USI winning the East if the Bellarmine posters are correct with all these injuries they are saying have happened to the Knights. UWP will be good, UIndy and Lewis are very beatable.

    Looks like the GLVC coaches think Bellarmine is going to run away with the East. I don't agree. I think UIndy or Lewis could win it. UW-Parkside lost too much, they are way over rated. USI is awful, can't believe they are picked over UIS and St. Joe's.

    lebanon High school with 3 scholarships should be beatable too. HoTWoD has proved time and time again it isnt the case. rajala too soft to be any good make nick evans look like lou ferigno

    I think u underrate UWP. Granted they lost their leading scorer but that is it. Returning 4 starters and 6 of their top 8 from the regional No.1 seed plus adding some decent talent, I think they are really the team to beat. Reigel has done a really nice job in the regular season, at least. If the injury reports are true for BU, I think UWP cruises to the East title.

    I actually think the coaches gave too little respect to St. Joe's this year. I wouldn't be surprised if they finish as high as 5th. I think they will surprise some teams. I think they pretty much nailed the West. Quincy or Drury is pretty much a toss up. They are definitely the tops of the West and probably of the whole conference.

    No, UWP was all about that guard last season. With him gone, their entire team changes. They were terrible in the regional, lucky for them they got to play KWC in the first game or they would have lost to any other team. I think Bellarmine, Lewis, UIndy in the East. I did hear one of Bellarmine's players quit, a senior no less. Is it true his dad was upset with Davenport about playing time?

    That's the rumor going around. Not a major loss, in my opinion. I'd rather have Derksen back!

    You and your man crush for Derk! I think they proved last night that they are definitely better off without him. Great talent though and I'm afraid what he could do for KWC. I agree about the loss of Fredrick being no big deal. If a kid is going to quit over playing time in his senior season, it shows he isn't thinking about the team much.

    If you recall last season for UWP, they began the year minus their big time leading scorer (who xferred to D1) and they still had a great season. UWP was not a one man team last year. Look for Verhagen to pick up the scoring load.

    I know, right? In the words of that old blues song, "I can't quit you, baby." That said, if he has to have a bad game, I want it to occur if BU has to play KWC.

    Yep, suppose it may turn out to be an "addition by subtraction" kind of thing, although I'll come running with open arms if he wants to come back to BU.

    Yeah, that whole thing is bizarre.

    Any of you guys going to B-town on Saturday? I'm planning on making the trek, but probably won't be able to get down there until right around tip-off.

    Last year this came out on Oct 27. Not that it matters. BTW, last years coach's poll was pretty darn accurate. USI was the exception by doing better than predicted. (Sorry Watson haters).

    I do not understand the new point system at all. It appears that each region was ranked 1-5 based on seeing 15 first-place votes in each region, but I do not see mathematically how they came to the point totals as reported, especially with BU scoring less than both other region's leaders. East totals 223 points, Central and West total 220 points each.

    On the women's side, all three regions total 220 points.

    WOMEN'S PRESEASON
    EAST
    1. Southern Indiana 54 (5)
    2. Lewis 51 (5)
    3. Bellarmine 49 (3)
    4. Indianapolis 48 (2)
    5. UW-Parkside* 18

    CENTRAL
    1. Maryville 60 (6)

    If you don't get it, none of us math impaired people will. It makes no sense but doesn't matter. What I would like explained is the new point system that is going to be used to determine the standings in the conference.
