2016 Gulf Coast Showcase Primer: Houston The Favorite Among 8 Teams Headed To Florida
Last season, Houston won 22 games but didn’t get a sniff of an NCAA bid because of their non-conference schedule. Participating in this event, where they’ll be the favorite, won’t help. Wofford, Hofstra, and South Dakota lost key performers from last season to graduation, while Bradley and George Mason look likely to struggle again. Vermont and Kent State should contend in the America East and MAC, respectively, but neither will probably count as a quality win come Selection Sunday.
