Number 48 – Quincy Miller, PF, Fr., Baylor

The Baylor Bears have one of the deepest frontlines in all of college basketball with Miller, Quincy Acy, Anthony Jones, Perry Jones, J’Mison Morgan and Cory Jefferson all in tow.

Miller is the latest multi-faceted recruit to lace ‘em up for Scott Drew and with his addition to an already talented lineup, the Bears start the season with monster expectations. Miller gives the Baylor lineup another versatile player that can play facing the basket or on the low blocks. Matching up with Baylor won’t be an easy task for anyone this year. Continue reading

Just a few days ago, the Big 12’s future was bleak. Texas A&M was officially out the door to the SEC, Missouri seemed likely to follow. Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech looked ready to help form a mega conference, the PAC 16.

Late Tuesday night that all changed, as the PAC 12 announced there would be no expansion for the time being. Also, it was found out that the rumors that Missouri’s held an offer from the SEC were just that, rumors.

A&M is still out the door but the nine remaining Big 12 teams look ready to give it ready one more go and stay together. The two most important pillars, Oklahoma and Texas, are now committed to the Big 12 after being rejected by the PAC 12.

With the league at nine teams now, following back to back years of defections, the conference is now looking to expand. The Big East looks vulnerable after already losing two teams to the ACC (Pittsburgh and Syracuse) with the possibility of more to leave as well. There are also a few mid majors that look ready for the jump to a major conference. Continue reading
