Re: Early Top 25 Lists for 2016-17

From a Dayton perspective, their weakness is their front court depth after a relatively under-sized Pollard (Cunningham, Miller, and Williams??), which could have affected how they're seen nationally in comparison to other teams. Rhode Island isn't as deep there, but they do have two healthy returni...

The positives and the intensity that he brings are maximized with slightly less minutes.
