2009 Player Projections: BC, FSU, and Miami

Quick first impressions:
  • Boston College: Whatever defense the Eagles have ever played has been predicated on having a shot blocker under the basket to make up for the matadors on the perimeter. With no player on the roster taller than 6'8", Al Skinner is going to have to come up with a new strategy.
  • Florida State: Toney Douglas is the star, but the season will ride on how well the six freshmen play.
  • Miami: Why is it that whenever a team exceeds artificially low expectations one year they're always wildly overrated the next? The Hurricanes have a solid roster and a very good coach, but there's no way they're a top-10 team.
