This is a weak pre conference schedule with only Colo at home, Saint Louis in Vegas and So Cal at Staples and Illinois at their place. Hardly a high SOC preseason and then we run into the usual suspects in the WCC with ranked SMC and Gonzaga teams to deal with. As usual, our poor defense and poor free throw shooting from our bigs will cost us easy wins. I would chalk up losses to SMC and Gonzaga on the road see us with a 24 or 25 record and sweating an invite.
