It is going to be an incredible season as events continue to unfold before the start of date. For any real fan, it is the time to start catching up with the latest news about all happenings in transfers and team preparations. Here are some predictions on NCAA teams;
Duke Blue Devils
Having endured a tough 2015-2016 season plagued by injuries and inconsistency in performance, the Blue Devils are looking for a better campaign. The team has shown a great form in the recent national championship. Two of their top players, Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum were among the best-rated players in the last season. The coach is anticipating the two players will have a significant influence on the rest of teammates. Few players have also rejoined the team to strengthen the squad. There is a strong reinforcement after Amile Jefferson who missed the last campaign was given the medical redshirt. He is expected to be on the team this time round.
Under their first spell with a new coach, John Calipari, the Wildcats reached NCAA regional final. The performance was fantastic throughout the season. A top rated signing has been made to add strength and new tactics to the squad. The Wildcats are a team to watch because they look more prepared and strong in this starting season.
The 2015-2016 season was a great one for this team having reached the finals in National Championship. They set a record of 35-5 as well. The freshly crowned champions will have a hard time trying to find perfect replacements for their two wingers who will be leaving. Nevertheless, the remaining team is strong enough to fill the gaps that will be left. The talents from Josh Hart and Omari Spellman will be vital in the center. The two bring in creativity, sharpness, and speed in the heart of the play. They will play an important role in helping the team defend their trophy. If you want a team that will not disappoint, this is one to watch.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels finished as the first runners-up in National Championship with a record of 33-7. The team still looks strong to defend their place even after losing three key players at the end of the season. They are bringing in a whole group of freshmen with some top prospects. It is a significant boost to the remaining team members. With much practice, the team will go to same heights as the 2015-2016 season.
Despite losing top players in graduate transfers, Louisville is expected to bounce back. The two players were very influential in their 2015 campaign helping them get a record of 23-8. Even after a self-imposing after season ban, the team looks ready to challenge in the NCAA Champion like it has done many times before.
The Hawks did not enjoy a very successful campaign as they had anticipated at the start. They got a record 33-5 last season. Top scorers Frank Mason and Devonte’ Graham will be back to give the team more strength forward. Several top players have joined the side and are expected to improve general performance in all positions played.
These are just but a few teams in the NCAA that look promising. Predictions have been made by experts on their results and possible lineups. Ensure you keep updated and win your bets.
