WOW!! We are in a world of hurt if KL “isn’t ready”. Now, we become thin in frontcourt and backcourt. Who is the ballhandler when KR not on the floor? TJ, who didn’t play really at all last season? KR going to be getting 35+ minutes a night.
We are basically relying on a bunch of guys to play decent minutes, with absolutely no track record.
This is shaping up to be a real problem. If we get an injury to one of our 3 bigs, or KR, we are done. Currently, I see 6 legit players that are healthy (3 in frontcourt and 3 in the backcourt, and DC is a reach 6th).
Completely right 90. Getting a little nervous for the season. Don’t like the way this is shaping up with all the injuries (and Miles’ transfer) and these super high expectations. All the previews talk about how much we return, but when you factor in Miles’ transfer and Alston’s ACL there is no bench experience at all. Plus a tough OOC schedule.
Jenkins, DC, and KL are all practically complete unknowns. Unless there are some surprises (Holba returns early and contributes in a big way, Jenkins or Carter make a huge jump), it’s going to be VERY hard to meet these expectations.
Huge opportunities are there for a number of guys, and I hope they are able to step up and contribute to keep this teams’ goals within reach.
There was a rumor here on the board that he might not – but I’m choosing to disregard that. I’ll wait for evidence; he seems to have support from the team and staff.
That said, I’m still really hoping we can snag a 2-guard in the ’16 class. We need one.
The name I can’t shake is Shawn Montague. He has a nice offer/interest list, but seems to be invisible on the big rating sites. He’s a good-sized G/F (wing?), and still on the board. Of course I know nothing about his academics.
Wow are we thin. KL did not look ready. Jenkins barely saw they floor when I was watching. JG seemed to be limited by injury, need him back. JRG time was limited. It seemed like an iron 5 as I watched intermittently. With MH I see a much shorter rotation than in the past.
