Toughie considering lots of question marks...but here goes:

1) Wichita St...seem to return the most
2) Missouri St...senior laden team...despite trailing off in the 2nd half, they're pretty good.
3) Creighton...return quite a few players...new regime may give new life
4)Northern Iowa...I think they lost too much firepower...big drop I know but the Valley has improved.
5) Bradley...decent returning crew as well...just not enough to crack the top 3 IMO
6) Indy St...I like what they return...losing Harry Marshall will be difficult to overcome, especially in terms of defensive stopper but I think they overcome. Look for the redshirts from last year to make contributions...also the return of Jake Kelly is big. Would love to see them finish top 3 and I think they have the bodies.
7) Illinois St...young but could be very tough due to Jackie Charmicael (sp?) being a beast...wouldn't surprise me if they end up higher (but no higher than 4 I'd guess).
8) Drake...on paper, best recruiting class for the Valley...I think they improve but the rest of the Valley has too much experience of them.
9) Eville...still need a year or two to rebuild
10) SIU...lost way too much firepower.

WSU--not as good as they think they are, but good enough
Illinois state--- Has some talent
Creighton----hired another good coach
UNI--good coach and some returnees
SMS---anyone with Kent Williams as an assistant will play hard the whole game
SIU----will be better than most on here think because it's back to Floorburn U mentality
Bradley--got some shooters
Indiana state---better than they have been lately
Evansville--- d-2 support from your university= d-2 results
Drake----one good season does not a program make

WSU- I am not sure about this team....no ball handler.... no pg in the valley is ever a good thing....
UNI- They are still damn good...
Bradley- I am not sure....I really like maniscalco I just dont think the rest of their team is very good....
Indy State- Underrated...over the past few years many have underrated high talents that went there just because they went to Indy State.
Creighton- I like the post play

That doesnt make sense to me why you would put SIU Drake or MSU ahead of us even I dont think that our talent is no longer defficient betwen other schools as it was in the past....I think our team's talent is just as good as anyone elses now...personal opinion...

It's possible that braves4life is not aware of what Indy St has returning...the only glaring loss really is Harry Marshall. Rashad was a decent scorer but he can be replaced...Harry's defense was a big help though. I'm not sure that ISUblue has a "lock down defender" that can take his place.

Mcwhorter has that type of defensive prowess...he doesnt have the offensive game but you also know that kelly will be a good defender with his length....Odum is decent defensively...

Drake

SIU
Eville

Valley is always guard oriented. Bradley has some of the most experienced guards in this conference returning. I am not sold on Bradley's ability to guard, score or rebound in the paint, but I think this team will come to play defensively every night and Bradley does return a lot of scoring. It is just very hard to ignore Bradley's returning experience.

IF and this is a HUGE IF, Bradley learns to rebound and play solid defense they do have a chance to win this conference. But it is very going to be a huge fight, as always, for the top 4 teams in this conference. WSU is just flat out real good and it will be incredibly difficult to go there and for anyone to win. ISUred has young but very good talent. I think Carmichael might be the best in this conference.

Drake is the team that I find to be very interesting, both in who they return and that recruiting class.
