Greg DePalma and PSN contributors Scott Zolotorow and Jamal Murphy begin their preseason analysis of every major and mid-major conference, starting with an American Athletic Conference where newly admitted Wichita State is favored. Meanwhile, Rhode Island is the clear favorite in the Atlantic 10 – possibly even a Sweet Sixteen team at the end.
Greg DePalma stumps for Syracuse, which lost to Miami in Tuesday night’s ACC Tournament and now must watch to see how such teams as California and Rhode Island do in their league tournaments. Forget metrics – though Syracuse’s isn’t bad – the Orange is simply better. Also, the Ivy League holds its first four-team tournament.
