Miami Hurricanes 2016-17 Basketball Team Preview and Prediction

Not that Jim Larranaga isn’t smart enough to figure all this out, but he enters the 2016-17 season facing questions he’s never had before.

 

The Hurricanes coach, coming off his second Sweet 16 appearance in four seasons, has a brand new roster once again. Unlike his rebuild of 2013’s ACC championship and Sweet 16 squad, he also has talent — namely, the first top-10 recruiting class in program history.

 

He may not know what to do with it until December.

Pittsburgh Panthers 2016-17 Basketball Team Preview and Prediction

Pittsburgh coach Kevin Stallings ... wait ... who? What about Jamie Dixon, the man who led Pittsburgh to 11 NCAA Tournaments in 13 years and was the cornerstone of the program?

 

In an intriguing twist, Dixon exited in the offseason, after leading Pittsburgh to a 21–12 record and to a one-and-done trip to the NCAA Tournament, to return to his alma mater, TCU. This prompted the hiring of Stallings, who spent 17 seasons at Vanderbilt and was the longest-tenured coach in the SEC.

Clemson Tigers 2016-17 Basketball Team Preview and Prediction

Is 2016-17 the season in which everything for Clemson comes together and lands the Tigers back in the NCAA Tournament? Brad Brownell and the Tigers certainly hope so. Five seasons have passed since Brownell took Clemson to the NCAAs in his debut, with only one NIT bid in the interim.

 

Clemson has been in the NCAA Tournament discussion the last two seasons but slipped out of the NIT entirely both times. Last year, Clemson lost four of its final five games and blew an 18-point second-half lead to Georgia Tech in the ACC Tournament.
