With just four days remaining until the first game of the season, it’s time to wrap up our preseason coverage with our staff predictions for the season. Spoiler alert: we think Villanova’s really good.

After compiling the data, here’s a quick overview of how these “experts” think the season will play out for the Wildcats:

  • Collectively, the staff has the ‘Cats going 32-6 on the season, which would be Wright’s 5th consecutive 30-win season.
  • We’re also predicting another dominating year in the BE. That includes a 14-4 conference record and first place finishes in both the regular season and conference tournament.
  • As for the NCAA Tournament, we’re predicting a run to the Elite 8. We even have two writers that see Nova returning to the Final Four, and a single vote to repeat as Champions.
  • Eric Paschall should be “The Guy” this season, receiving 70% of the vote for leading scorer and 80% for Team MVP.
  • Jermaine Samuels is our candidate for Most Improved Player, receiving 50% of the vote.
  • Jahvon Quinerly should be the Rookie of the Year, also receiving 50% of the vote.
