It's a free insider article with a photo of Matty B. on the college basketball home page . I thought it was a pretty fair evaluation. Lots of new-comers, but lots of talent. No mention of Bol in the article though...

There's also a highlight on Monson's LBSU team and an article focusing on his new coaching spot

What WCC team sounds like they're best loading up for the future (if you have ESPN Insider)?

I know who I think it is.

The big thing I took away from this is that the team lost roughly 60% of its rebounding. That's exactly how this year's team can improve upon last year. The offense overall may be harder to come by, but if these guys find a way to up the rebounding margin then it's not hard to imagine them turning those 60% to upwards of 75%. It's all about bulk and bodies, and this team has got them.

I think rebounding will be a big key for this season's team. With the inevitable youthfull turnovers, the Zags won't have as many possessions as they did last season. They'll also probably struggle more on offense with fewer major options. It's imperative that they get a lot of 2nd and some 3rd chance shots off of rebounds and stop opponents from doing the same IMO.
