The Islanders have played a very difficult schedule so far. They do not have a sparkling record. They are 4-7 on the season.
As members of the Southland Conference, only one team will likely advance to the NCAA Tournament this season. The Islanders are certainly considered one of the favorites to advance to the Big Dance. They are in the West Division with Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston State, Texas-San Antonio, Texas-Arlington, and Texas State. The Islanders were picked to finish third by the SIDs and fourth by the coaches in the preseason.
The best player on the Islanders is Demond Watt, obviously. He has averaged nearly a double-double against this difficult schedule. He can flat out play. He will be a difficult match-up for anyone in this tournament.
