USF was picked to finish second but underperformed last year in an injury-plagued nightmare. UCF was picked right behind them, but returns the best non-UConn player in the conference in Kay Kay Wright. Cincinnati matched the Knights in total points, but Houston could very well finish ahead of the Bearcats with a few fortunate eligibility waivers.
The list goes on.
