Lady Jays come in at #33.

Salad days for CU athletics with multiple/most programs highly regarded. Do we build a statue of Ras now, after he retires or posthumously? Really amazing stuff.

IMO #33 is high for WBB. Unless the four newcomers are phenomenal scorers the team will rely heavily on Faber and volume shooter Lamberty for points. Going to be easy to shut them down and with no scoring at PG and no true post player (a hallmark of Flan's teams except for a few years with Rollerson and Janis) and a turnover-prone offense, I have a hard time putting them higher than #60-70.

Wow. Great praise and assessment. Any highpoints / strengths?
