The Big 4 - CHC, SFA, MSJ, JC. CHC should be the favorite this year, they're loaded, so they gotta win something. Not a better wing duo than Edwards and Clareth. The demise of MSJ is exaggerated, they might have the best young talent in the league, they will be good late. SFA will rely on guard play, but still have quality bigs. SFA's entire starting 5 could be D1 players. Team Canada/JC returns all key players, complete team. The bigs are a year older and tough guards led by Bucknell commit.
Contenders - MC, Spalding, McD, Gilman. MC has the pieces to be strong and this is the school's best chance to win something this year, if ever. The bigs will carry MC, like McD, but McD might have the best big tandem in the A. If the guard play steps up they could be a factor, not to mention the Gately factor. Spalding lost 2 key pieces, pg and center, but the have some nice young talent and vet Jefferson. Gilman's frosh are a year older and better, they should contend for playoffs. Signed to play football at FSU, no pressure, look for Locksley to have a big senior yr like Jones. McD, Spalding or Gilman could be a darkhorse to be an upper tier team, MC should challenge the top.
The Rest - GCS lost key seniors, not sure what they have. Loyola will probably be Loyola, not contend, but do more than expected.
