People thought that the conference was down in 2018-19 from 2017-18, it's going to look REALLY down in 2019-20:
*Hartford- Lose everybody. Will absolutely have to be least experienced team in D1 next season. Do they even have 10 scholarship roster players returning right now? Don't see how this team wins 10 games next year as of now.
*Stony Brook- just lost its HC and best player and another talented freshman. Might be fine under Ford, but losing Yeboah is huge blow.
*UMBC- Should be fine, return back court and have Odom, but losing its best player and still do not have any newcomers for next season (?). Lack of shooting on the roster.
Both Albany and Binghamton look like they should be ascending and better, but neither were that good in 2018-19 so unsure how that's going to translate into 2019-20.
Not sure what to make of UMass-Lowell but will likely be middle of the pack to 4th place, Maine and New Hampshire issue is going to be about bringing in talent to compete.
Conference is going to be down. Likely way down off the past two seasons.
