    Yep, I think we needed some positive news. SG was our area of greatest need too, imo.

    Here are the stats for Bennett. Interesting that he will be leaving Lafayette (HS) to come to Lehigh.

    Tejada will be part of the mix at the 1/2 spot. What we have is a lot of quality depth at the wings. Competition makes everyone better. Just my opinion.

    I’m not sure how accurate the listed heights are but Holba is now listed at 6-7 and Andree is 6-8. The wild cards are Sedore at 6-11 and Lieb at 6-10. The 4 will be expected to cover the 4/5 positions next year. We’ll see how they mature. Holba and Andree can also play some 3 but we will have a plethora of 6-4/6-5 guards to fight for minutes at either wing.
    Either Leufroy or Tejada is capable of putting in minutes at the PG if Ross or Cohen get hurt.
    There is a lot of high quality unknowns on the team this year along with a lot of high quality knowns. It will be interesting to see how Doc uses them.

    Watching bunch of video. Holba only one that seems really comfortable inside. Lieb and Andree both are bug bodies hope they can learn. CS a 6’11 3 pt shooter. Guess he’ll be fun to watch. Doc does have a lot of options.

    Point worth considering: we have been playing a 3-guard set – much to my chagrin – pretty regularly for a while now. And a true 5 seems to be a dying breed (sadly). With that in mind, another possible look for next year:

    PG. KR, JC
    SG. KL, LT
    SG2. BA, Frosh tbd
    F. Holba, Andree
    C/F2. CS, Lieb

    From the pix that LU sports has been sharing, I’m impressed with the size of Lieb. He appears to dwarf Andree, who I thought was pretty big. And looks very, very solid.

    Caleb’s commitment a big deal here. No surprise. Apparently a big deal in Kansa City also. Local Fox station interviewing him on their 5 PM news.

    Rich,
    You really need to do something about that cough :-)

    I’m really looking forward to this basketball season in that the nucleus returns plus we are adding Holba, Alston, Sedore, Andree, Cohen and Lieb, 5 of whom are really unknown commodities.

    Side note….the 2017-2018 team will have 5 *** recruits. That must be a first. Ross, Holba, Andree, Tejada, Wilson.
