Grading The Chanticleers

Just as scouts grade prospects using the 20-80 scouting scale, we use a 20-80 scale to evaluate teams in our top 25. A score of 50 in each category is average, relative to a typical NCAA tournament team; 55 is slightly above-average; 60 is above-average (plus); 70 is well above-average (plus-plus); 80 is top of the scale, historically strong. Accordingly, 45 is fringe-average or slightly below-average; 40 is below-average; 30 is well below-average; and 20 is the extreme in that direction.

Hitting: 60

Coastal Carolina’s Parker Chavers (Aaron Fitt)

The Chants lost four regulars (led by mainstays Kevin Woodall and Seth Lancaster) from an offense that ranked fourth nationally in scoring (eight runs per game) last year. The returning core is still very dangerous, and Coastal has the luxury of plugging some holes with experienced and talented veterans who have been waiting in the wings for their shot to play every day.
