Expectations of 2019-20 Basketball Team

This team is being ranked in the top 25 by some (not my thought).  Will they live up to the hype or be a bust?

I expect we will flirt with an AP 25 ranking at times during the season.  Finish 5-7th in Big Ten.  Make the tourney as 10-12 seed.
or not.

I think they get in the tourney...maybe ranked at times.
Fear is if we do really good, Ayo gone, maybe Kofi as well if he is solid.
Gotta capitalize on recruiting if we lose a big dog or two.

Barring a serious injury to Ayo or Georgi, this team should dance!

I really look forward to seeing how well they dance, esp Ayo, assuming they make it

I believe they live up to the majority of the hype. But what I'm most afraid of is when we need that big win against a true blue blood they can't get that win and our fanbase goes in on the coach.

This team is very close to being the best team talent wise that they have had on
the court in 12/13 years.

If they had a guy who could come off picks and fire at the shooting guard  or 3 position they would be behind 04 05 team.

Jones and Griffin both could blossom into much better players but they wont play half as much because the team has 3 guards who can go get their own shots.
