Folks -

F & M has finally posted the Diplomats' men's basketball schedule for 2018-2019. There are still several teams and times that have not yet been confirmed or finalized. See the link below:

Bring on the season. The fun begins in about two months!

I'll go out on a limb, then.  I don't know how good they'll be, but I don't think Washington College is finishing last this year.  That's an exciting, still pretty young team, that's learning a lot.  I think they surprise some people, especially at home.

What a great time of the year, practice is about to start and everyone loves their squads!
A lot of important roles to fill for some of the CC teams this season so who knows what might happen but here is my prediction:
Swat
JHU
F&M
Ursinus
Dickinson
Mules
Wash
Haverford
Gburg
McD

Top three seem like a lock in some order (injuries notwithstanding). Ursinus has a lot of talent but they never seem to get over the hump, but I am sure at some point this year they will win five in a row and everyone will say "Here come the Bears!". The last players from Dickinson's strong teams are gone and I don't see a lot replacing them, too bad because I think Serretti is a great coach. At the bottom I think McDaniel just never found those replacements for Brooks and Stewart and Royster (an underrated part of their defense when it was great). Gburg has a new coach and the talent just isnt there to make a quick bounce back.

But what do I know? This probably means Haverford will win the whole thing.
