    UC returns their top 4 scorers, but the depth provided by the SR class will be replaced by talented but untested rookies.

    UConn has had freshman and sophomores step up big, but how will they do without Kemba.

    UL should be strong, but Pitino isn't one to showcase freshman, so again the depth will be in question.

    Lavin will have a roster with 1 returning player that mattered, and he faded to nothing over the last 6 weeks.

    Pitt will be built for regular season success, but we know how that has gone in March.

    Just a million questions and not many answers when looking at the league next year...
    Honestly, right now, I see Syracuse as the best team & probably UC next (I'm not counting Pitt because I never count Pitt). I think UL will miss Knowles next year more than they missed all those departed seniors this year (though I do like Buckles & his talent). UCONN definitely has talent, but I'm skeptical as to what they'll be w/o Kemba.

    So I'm thinking Syracuse/UC presents the best matchup right now. But of course, it is just March...

    If UK dropped IU, I'd be in favor of this. If not, I don't want another rivalry game.

    Mark you calendar for Nov. 15th. UK/KU and Duke/Michigan St. in the Garden for a great double header. Would really like to see UC come down to Rupp, I think they owe us a visit, or perhaps put the game at the US Bank. Would be a fun game.

    If they play it has to be at either Rupp or 5/3. I hate neutral site games.

    I knew UK was playing Kansas, but didn't know it was in the Garden. Thanks for the info!

    At this point I would drop IU in a second for UC.
