1st in the West

Top three:

G/F Orien Greene,
PG Dwayne Mitchell.

On the decline: On paper, the Ragin' Cajuns appear to still be the most talented team in the West. That's quite an accomplishment, considering they lost three double-digit scorers. That doesn't count standout center Michael Southall, whose troubles with the law ended up being his undoing. With Evans leaving and successor Glynn Cyprien dismissed after a resume scandal, assistant Robert Lee takes over a team with strong pieces up front (Hamilton, Chris Cameron) and on the wing (Greene, Mitchell and ETSU transfer Tiras Wade).
