Big West Predictions anyone?

Big West Predictions anyone? 


Seems pretty wide open but I think the first and last spots are pretty easy. With our injuries, defections, administrative blunders and MIAs I really have no idea where the Titans will fall. Anyone care to try to fill in the blanks?

1) Dirtbags

10) UC Riverside

I like your list.

1-3 Hawaii, Dirtbags, Northridge in any order
4-6 Irivine, Fullerton, Pacific in any order
7-9 SLO, Davis, Santa Barbara in any order
10 Riverside in any order 

I am predicting the 1st place and the 9th place would be separated by 5 wins at the most.

Somewhat surprised you both have Hawaii so high. I know they have some good bigs but I think quickness will prevail over big-ness. I would move Irvine and UOP ahead of them. UCD will be ahead of both UCSB and SLO, with the rivals duking it out for the last BW tourney bid.

I always get quickness and speed confused because they often go hand in hand, but not always.  

Speed is a physical movement.  On the other hand, quickness is more of a mental process that dictates movement. I really do not know how how to explain it well, nor do I want to if I could.  I just know that there is a difference and when it comes to quickness, Hawaii is not that much different from the other BW teams.

I think in a fastbreak situation, Hawaii may be a step slower.  In a half-court set, Hawaii is as quick as the next Big West team.  I know this from watching them play twice.
