last year's team had no depth.
this year's team, on paper, is deeper and more athletic. But, due to the injuries, they will be relying on true Freshmen to provide that depth during the grueling B1G season. That is asking a lot.
last year's team finished 13-17 overall, 4-16 in the B1G.
so, if they go 8-12 in the B1G this season, that puts them at 17-13 overall. that would be a step forward. I don't know if that gets them into the NIT.
with Fox and Ihnen, this is a 20-win team. without them, I just don't know.
This team don't have Fox & Ihnen.
They have 2 all Big Ten players( according to most on this forum) Garcia & Battle, why is that not enough ?
