Thread: So with the addition of Darius McNeill...

  1. #1

    So with the addition of Darius McNeill...

    ...we will have a total of 10 active scholarship players this year with a total of 10 yrs of D1 experience and only 2 players with more than 1 year of experience:

    Okoroh (Sr)
    Lee (RsSr)
    Davis (RsSo)
    Coleman (Jr)
    Harris-Dyson (Fr)
    Sueing (Fr)
    McCulloch (Fr)
    Anticevich (Fr)
    McNeill (Fr)
    Winston (Fr)

    With Paris Austin sitting the year out, that leaves 2 scholarships left if my math is correct.

    Are there any legit grad transfers left on the market? With 2 commits already for next year taking Lee and Okoroh's spots, I can't see the staff giving the remaining 2 slots to anyone who will be around longer than a year given the players they are going after for 2018 (of course this doesn't factor other openings that may occur due to transfers, etc).

    it doesn't count. because of the coaching change, we're allowed to let one player leave and keep the schollie without it counting.

    So, there's no rest for Lee & Kingsley - Quite a change for Lee from Kentucky - Lee obviously looks like he's in the best shape imaginable; but one has to wonder how he will cope (not only physically) with the demand (in the "supply and demand" sense, not the requirement sense) to play more minutes than anyone else on the team [i.e., I imagine that, if he were up to it (again mentally as well as physically), there would never be any reason to take him off the floor - although it is truly hard to imagine any human actually capable of that, without some down side to it]

    He's a racehorse. He'll love it.

    Foul issues might be more a problem than stamina as shot blockers are always in peril.
    Access is better than ownership!

    They're not going to run Okoroh and Lee into the ground. They won't be playing a 6'10 PF and 7 ft center for 40 minutes. There's really no need to play that big, anyway. Not with their style of defense.

    That's a brave face for a short squad.

    Our women's team has had success (including a Final Four) with some playing nearly 40 minutes a game. I don't consider that ideal but it's not unworkable.

    I don't think so. They'll get some. Doubt it will be lots, though.

    The team could certainly use more depth at the 4 and 5 but college basketball has changed. You simply don't need two 6'10+ guys out there at once all the time to succeed. If Sueing, Anticevich, Davis and Welle can rebound, they'll be fine with 1 big on the floor. And McNeill, Winston and Harris-Dyson are all big guards that can rebound, too.

    In this context, considering that one of them died on the floor: Not a good thought.
