Official 2016-17 MVCfans.com Prediction - 10th Place

Postby MVCfans » September 1st, 2016, 1:54 pm

It's that time of year again as Valley fans begin to look ahead to the 2016-17 Missouri Valley Conference men's basketball season. This is the 7th year of our site and, as always, we begin with our preseason user vote to rank the MVC teams. We will work in reverse order, predicting the 10th place finisher this week and concluding with the predicted MVC champion chosen by our users between the last two teams remaining in week 9. Following the team rankings, we will vote on the individual awards and compare them to the media selections.

Here are previous MVCfans.com results (predicted / actual):
2010-11: Wichita State / Missouri State
2011-12: Creighton / Wichita State
2012-13: Creighton / Creighton
2013-14: Wichita State / Wichita State
2014-15: Wichita State / Wichita State
2015-16: Wichita State / Wichita State

Week 1 - Who will finish in 10th place during the 2016-17 MVC men's basketball season?
-You are choosing the team that you believe will finish in last place for this regular season.

Poll open until the evening of Wednesday, September 7.

I didn't find it that hard. But I would definitely put them in contention for the spot.

I find it hard to believe you are picking the Bulldogs for last place. Giacoletti sin his fourth year and has all of his own recruits. Last season we had a dunk and four fast breaks.While we did lose our best player, I heard one of the other guys was practicing this summer.

Should be significantly better. Granted we have a lot of room to improve and it would be hard to be worse, but there is a lot of buzz around many of the new players and we have much more depth than we had last season.

A lot of us think we have a very reasonable shot to get to 6th place.

My take from the outside as well. Interested to see how Bradley performs this season.

Year 4 is a breakout season for a lot of good coaches. GM went 29-8 at WSU and won the NIT championship in his 4th year. Jacobsen and UNI went 30-5 and went to the Sweet 16.

Our AD has assured us that Giacoletti is one of the best coaches in the country so I wouldn't be surprised if we doubled our conference win total from last year and racked up 4 conference wins.

Don't get the Bradley hate. I could even see them under-performing and falling to 9th, but they should be more on the Thursday night bubble than in the cellar.
