The race to determine the best team in some states might be more contentious than any conference race
New York: St. John's Red Storm
State of the state: Johnnies fans, here is your moment. This is a first! In the past seven years of making the United States of College Basketball, only Syracuse or St. Bonaventure got their logos on display. But with Syracuse coming off the first sub-.500 season of Jim Boeheim's life and with the Bonnies losing significant pieces, Mike Anderson's Red Storm are looking like the Empire State's best basketball outfit. Posh Alexander and Andre Curbelo will try to get the Johnnies into the NCAA Tournament, where the program hasn't won a game since 2000. Team who could have the highest win total by March: Colgate. Matt Langel's Raiders won 23 or more games in the three most recent seasons with a complete or mostly complete schedule.
