At OVC Media Day after Murray State was picked to win the conference...

"Being picked first this year seems more legitimate than last year," head coach Mick Cronin said. "It's more assuring knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are. Last year, we were trying to figure out what those were. This time around, we've got a lot better feel for what we have.

I think the tough thing last year was that we were picked to win the league because of Adam Chiles. He was probably the best guard in the Ohio Valley Conference. We would not have been picked to win the conference without him. So when I had to dismiss him from the team we had a bunch of young guys saddled with unrealistic expectations.
