#9. Florida International– Every Shaka Smart disciple has his own style: while Jamion Christian and Mike Rhoades were grinding out games last season, Jeremy Ballard took over at FIU and had the Panthers playing at the fastest tempo in America. The Panthers rode that “warp speed ahead” ideology and terrific lead guard play from Brian Beard in ball screens to a 20-win season. Replacing Beard will be a massive challenge for an offense that relies on quick decisions from its lead ballhandler– sophomore Antonio Daye should step up, and JUCO guard Blake Furcron will add shot-making to a wing unit that already featured Trejon Jacob and Devon Andrews. Up front, Ballard has prioritized athleticism, landing the likes of shot-blocking extraordinaire Dimon Carrigan and St John’s import Sedee Keita this offseason. 20 wins may be a tough act to follow, but the Panthers won’t be an easy out.

I’m liking this year’s team, although we have many new players that will have to be immediate impact. It may take time for us to gel, but on paper this team will be very talented.

I thought FIU would have more respect after last season. I guess not.

If we ever hope to move to a better conference, it will take consistent and winning football and basketball programs. Let's hope we can surprise some folks this season and put up another 20-win season. Go Panthers!
