    next year's starters

    I know it's early, but I've been thinking about it lately and I can't decide who I think will start. For sure Royce and Allen, and I can't see a scenario where Scotty doesn't start with the way he's been playing this year. This is how I see it, but I don't know enough about Booker, Babb, or our incoming guys to say.

    (?) 1 - Sledge, McGee, Odunsi (can CA play the point?)
    2 - CA
    3 - Scotty
    4 - Ejim
    5 - White

    I don't know if Booker will start over Ejim or not. I guess with the depth we'll have it shouldn't matter too much. We can go big with White and Booker or smaller with Ejim and White.

    Re: next year's starters

    Either way, we should be able to go 10 deep, with not a ton of drop off in the 2nd five, IMO.

    I'd rather have these threads every day about MBB than last year's daily threads about "Who is the next player to leave?"

    i wouldnt worry your pretty head about it. Fred will be making the decision.

    Bubu will not be playing next year. He is good for a walk on, but that does not mean he is good. His playing time will be over after this year.

    Re: next year's starters

    Allen, SC, Ejim and White will all start
    those 4 guys can each play 2 positions
    giving us the flexability to play a
    PG-McGee, Palo, Sledge and Odunsi or a
    Post-Booker, Godfrey and Railey with them.

    Cook can sub into Ejim's spot and
    Babb-into Christopherson's

    I think DP will leave unless somethng changes.
    McKnight of course needs a RS if he stays

    Palo will earn a schollie if he gets into the rotation next year.
    If he's in the rotation one of our PG recruits will leave and the situation will solve itself. His lack of scoring hurts, I'm guessing he doesn't.

    I think our rotation will end up at 8, the main 4,
    2-PGs McGee and Sledge
    a wing guessing Babb over Cook
    and a Post-Godfrey or Booker(not sure which)

    I'd like to see Railey get a RS.

    I'm not worried. More just curious as to what other people thought.

    Re: next year's starters

    I can't speculate at this point, and I won't start getting into that unless postseason play becomes unlikely.

    I am pretty sure Christopherson will be in the starting lineup.

    Re: next year's starters

    Whoever thinks CA will not be starting is nuts. My guess would be. FH will not screw over Ejim from a starting spot. CA Scotty and White are locks in my opinion.

    McGee/Sledge/bubu
    Chris Allen/Chris Babb
    Scotty/Cook
    Ejim/Booker
    White/Godfrey

    I would like to see Booker start because of a three guard lineup and with his size, But i will not complain with that starting lineup at all :).

    Re: next year's starters

    McGee
    CA
    Ejim
    White
    Booker

    Scotty or Babb comes in first off the bench then...
    Godfrey
    Phillips
    Cook
    Railey
    Sledge
    and so on...
