Justin Michael is joined by the founder of HeatCheckCBB.com, Eli Boettger, and the two discuss his way-too-early projections for the upcoming Mountain West men’s basketball season. Eli explains why San Diego State is good enough to crack the top-15, why Wyoming may not be quite as dangerous as some think and why CSU should still be a dangerous group without David Roddy. Eli also gives some insight into why the additions of Josiah Strong and Patrick Cartier are significant, how he views Roddy as an NBA prospect, why the USC game is intriguing and more!
