Morning Mashup: After Further Preview

James Lang-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

We continue taking a look at the conferences through Yahoo!'s eyes, as CBS has now joined the melee of previewing

In previewing the Patriot League, we discover - to nobody's surprise - that there will likely be a two team race between Bucknell and Lehigh. And that Lehigh likely holds a slight edge over Bucknell due to the gap in talent between CJ McCollum and the Bison's Mike Muscala - for which they have McCollum's upbringing to thank.

In taking a look at the MAAC, everyone at the top lost at least someone, but only Manhattan - who improved by 15 wins last season - and Siena (George Beamon and O.D. Anosike respectively) return their best player. Hopefully the latter can help Siena's relatively new coach remain in that position long enough to get out of Fran McCaffery's shadow.

In the SoCon preview, we see Yahoo! saying what we have already told you - that Davidson is hands-down the best team in the conference based on returning talent. That said, College of Charleston is no slouch either - thanks to Andrew Lawrence's decision to play basketball instead of soccer as a career.

In the last preview for now, the Ivy League no longer boasts Harvard as a decisive (if not overwhelming) favorite after the scandal. Princeton is probably the slight favorite now, thanks to a very experienced squad and a leader who was probably always destined to be there, but Harvard (and, to a lesser extent Columbia) still have the talent to make things interesting.
