The Seminoles still have a lot of talent though and still may make an impact in basketball odds before the college basketball season is over.
NCAA basketball odds in 2007-2008 for Florida State will definitely be impacted with the loss of Thornton. Experts at NCAA basketball odds know that Thornton averaged a team high 19.7 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1.5 steals last year. Many experts that bet basketball odds expert that Solomon Alabi and Julian Vaughn will try and pick up some of the slack. Alabi is 7-1 but doesn’t have much of an offensive game. He will block shots and rebound though and impress fans of NCAA basketball odds. Small forward Jordan DeMercy will need some time to develop. The player that may make an impact according to experts that bet NCAA basketball odds as a freshman is Chris Blake. He can score and play defense for the Seminoles and affect the basketball odds. Fans of NCAA basketball odds know that Toney Douglas made an impact last season after transferring from Auburn. He averaged 12.7 points and 2.9 assists last year. Experts that consider NCAA basketball odds see that Isaiah Swann and Jason Rich both averaged about 10 points per game last year and provide good experience. Ralph Mims will back up both guard spots.
Uche Echefu started all 35 games last year and is a good rebounder but according to NCAA basketball odds experts needs to improve offensively. Casaan Breeden and Ryan Reid have some experience as well and may help the Seminoles according to fans of NCAA basketball odds. The projected starting five according to NCAA basketball odds experts has Douglas and Swann at the guards, Rich as either the third guard or small forward, Eschefu at forward and Alabi in the middle.
Florida State is not expected to be as good this season versus NCAA basketball odds but remember they were an NCAA Tournament bubble team anyway. With continued improvement during the season, NCAA basketball odds experts believe they could reach that point again this year. The key will be getting good guard play and support up front for Echefu so he doesn’t have to do it all by himself.
