Dick Vitale – I’m healed and excited to see these 6 teams the Big Dance missed last season

I recently received some good news: My throat has healed. I’m looking forward to calling up the matches this season, and can’t wait for the season to start.

I decided to take a look at my six super bands that didn’t dance last season. I feel their fans have more reasons to be excited. I think those six could make it to 68 after failing last year. (Teams included with last season’s record.)

Cincinnati (18-15)

Wes Miller’s team added talented transfers. Landers Noli II from Memphis, David de Julius from Michigan John Newman III from Clemson and Rob Venetian of Indiana are all on the list and must provide experience and leadership. The Bearcats will have several early tests, including the Arizona and Xavier. This band can make a fuss.

Florida (17-14)

The Seminoles had their lowest victories in seven years. Florida finished 16th in three consecutive NCAA tournaments before failing last year. (There was no championship in the hardest-hit COVID-19 cases of 2020). Assisted the transfer as a former Houston guard Caleb Mills and Central Florida Darren Green Jr. Go to Tallahassee, and Jilan Jenny from brown and Cam Ron Fletcher Comes from Kentucky. There is so much excitement about diapers dandy Matthew ClevelandIt is an all-American high school.

Texas A&M (27-13)

The Aggies deserved the NCAA show last season. Instead, Buzz Williams led his team to the NIT Finals. Williams brought in a number of transfers. included Julius Marble II from Michigan and Dexter Dennis from Wichita. Dennis was AAC’s best defensive player last season. Williams has relied on transfers before, and brought them in Henry Coleman III from Duke and Tyrese Radford from Virginia Tech. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is loaded, but Texas A&M should be in the championship picture.

St. John (17-15)

The Red Storm last won an NCAA game in 2015. Mike Anderson is optimistic bosch alexander Leading back talent. Joel Soriano He has improved and is in good shape, so he can put on two doubles every night. With the departure of Julien Champagne, DePaul’s move David Jones You are expected to bear the burden of registration. Illinois relocation Andrei Corbelo He hopes to return to the form he once showed as a new student. Kolby King and AJ Storr are new students who can contribute. The team gained experience during a summer trip to the Dominican Republic.

Xavier (23-13)

The riders won the 2022 NIT race and hope to build on that momentum. Sean Miller is back in the collegiate side row, and that should provide the excitement. Xavier has volume upfront with Zach Fremantle The former Iowa player Jack Nong. There are seasoned guards in Adam Konkel And the Colby Jones Provide experience. Add UTEP Transfer Soule Boum It will be positive he was the second All-Conference USA team last season.

Oregon (20-15)

Ducks don’t play a real road game without conferences, which can help. Will RichardsonAnd the Happy Dante And the Quincy Guerrier Provide veteran leadership.
