Heard Geno had a big night at the Twin Cities Pro-Am, he dropped 37 points.

In Big Sky news, SUU Guard Randy Onwuasor is transferring out.

The players shake hands as game 2 comes to a close. Team Jones beats Diggs Team 112-94. Tyus Jones leads the way w/ 39 pts. 37 for Crandall...Hooker, Tyus Jones NBA and Tre Jones  number one rated prep point  guard per scout.com and prep hoops.com ...were the guards playing vs Crandall

Can we win the Big Sky with the best point guard and a supporting cast? Perhaps the transfers will bring something.

There is a lot more questions to this team now that Drick and Shanks have transferred out and we will see what these new transfers bring to the table.  The key to me is with these three: Jones, Walter and McCauley. Avants is solid, but UND is going to need more than that in the post.  If they can match or exceed what Drick and Shanks brought last year, then UND will definitely be in the mix.  If they can't, they will be in the 2nd tier with Sac and PSU.  Geno is talented and will be in the hunt for POY honors with Sanders, Hall, Rorie, Chapman.  I am not concerned with Stewart or Seales.  I think one of the guards (Brown, Jafar, Moody, Trey) will step in and give valuable minutes off the bench. 

Right now I would have UND still in the 5 slot in my preseason rankings.  I still have Idaho pegged as my preseason favorite and you can throw MSU, Griz and Weber anywhere between 2-4 and be justified.  But in no way will this be another 9-22 season unless the wheels totally fall off the wagon.

We don't have to accept it (and can always demand more) but I think we need to expect a bit of a rebuilding type season next year.... but I really do think that 2018-19 will be a special year, barring unforeseen changes. A nice way to start off the Summit era.  All that said, I am not writing off 2017, it's just the pragmatist in me talking.

Idaho has top 7 back plus starting guard Callandret starter from 15/16.... They are logical top choice.... If you do not  take a good and objective look at every team in the league before spewing out predictions on where teams finish then you are just making uneducated guesses

You thinking I am optimistic with UND in the 5 slot?  I think they are still slightly better than Sac and PSU. I think PSU could be that team that makes a jump into the top 4 if things break right.  Lots of balance.  I do agree that Idaho is the favorite, Weber has Harding and the heralded transfer in Chapman, MSU has Hall and the Griz has balance and depth.

Agree with your picks....referring to the other guy projecting UND first year in Summit really doubt he or anybody else has a good idea how the Summit league teams will look in 18/19..

Newspaper reports have linked him with Oregion and Gonzaga.  He's can grad transfer.
