Sight unseen and based solely on reports of high school and AAU play, I would have to say – much like all of you – that SW and JC hold the keys to our success this year. Guard play is a given and in good hands. My concerns are two. One, can SW and JC run the floor (with MM and Reed at the helm, I’m expecting another up-tempo year on offense) and two, can they defend? Minutes will be dictated by each. With 13 games (520) minutes to play with during the OOC portion of our schedule – more than most if not all PL teams (good job Coach Ott and crew) – we ougth to have time to set a strong lineup by the time we take the court up in Hamilton on January 2nd.
