2008-09 Pac-10 season finally starts to take shape

Posted by Jeff Nusser on June 16, 2008

Some have wondered why I haven’t done any kind of comprehensive breakdown of the upcoming Pac-10 basketball season, and the reason is simple.

I was waiting for today.

Decision day came and went, and we now know that Ryan Anderson and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute are staying in the draft, while Chase Budinger is coming back to school. Of those three decisions, Anderson staying in the draft seems to have the greatest impact on the Cougs, who figured to be passed by the Bears this season with Anderson. Now, that team goes back to the drawing board a bit under Mike Montgomery.

I’ll have some real-deal breakdowns starting next week, so be on the lookout for those. I’ve just got to get done with the school year before I’ll have time for all that.

    Looking at the defections to the draft I dont think its outrageous at all for the Cougs to go dancing again next year, or at least make a hell of a run at it a la ASU this year. It’ll be fun to watch fersure.

    Hey Nuss,

    Any thoughts on the new PG we picked up for the 09 season?

    Xavier Thames could be a good one. He has a strong defensive mentality and his favorite player is Gary Payton, who perhaps is the all-time best defensive point guard. In our defensive system, stopping dribble penetration is extremely important. With the redshirt and true freshman on this coming years team and with the addition of Thames, Brown and any other recruits, we should be near the top of the league again in the future.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
