    Didn't know where to drop this and this thread hasn't been touched since March but...

    Rothstein: Wichita State has dismissed Teddy Allen from its men's basketball program, per a school spokesman. Allen was arrested earlier this week for "domestic disturbance". Major news in the American Conference.

    (Former West Virginia player, believe UC was on his short list before committing to WVU a few years ago)

        Going to be interesting to see whether he gets his waiver after the NCAA decided to puts the clamps on transfers yesterday.

          Man, it's going to be a war in the AAC going forward with what's going on, especially in Memphis and Houston right now. It appears the whole league is on the upswing. I think Brannen is up to the challenge from what I've seen so far, but this league is getting tough.

            I missed the story on NCAA putting clamps on transfers. Is there a link? Is this only certain tainted players or programs?

                  I think Keith Williams will be a major breakout player in the conference this year. Rothstein missed on him.

                    Keith Williams was set for a breakout year before the coaching change and he will only blossom more under Brennan's style. While there is a lot of talent on this team, the go to guys will be Jarron and Keith. Trevon will get his because of his innate ability to rebound. The Frosh and grad transfer will be solid and this team will compete for league championship. I kinda thought Nate Hinton brokeout last year. In fact, I think Hinto will be top dog on that Cougar team not Jarreau.

                    Related to UConn leaving, I don't think Hurley will have the Huskies ready for middle of the pack in AAC. Too many distractions for my liking and I predict regression for both the team ranking and consistent star players.

                      Trevon will be able to do more than just rebound in this scheme. He is the most likely candidate to fill the role played by Mcdonald at NKU. Brannon utilizes a lot of pick & roll and pick & pop. Trevon showed he can shoot from outside, which will draw a larger defender out on him.
