    Player profiles

    CW said in his chat that Allen is going to be the go to guy next year. What kind of player is he? I know he can score but is he like Denmon who can slash and shoot the three or is he more of an athletic 3 pt threat?

    While I'm at it what about White and Booker? Everyone is very high on White but I don't know much about what he brings. Is he a banger that can step out and hit a mid range jumper? Is Booker and Godfrey similar players?

    I think Booker and Godfrey are similar players. Both are "power" guys who play 8 ft and in. I only saw Booker play a few times but that is my impression.

    IMO we'll see Godfrey starting next to White next year. Loved his effort and intensity this year.

    Fixed that for ya.

    The "go to" guy is an awfully long reach as a judgment call right now.

    What kind of player is he? I know he can score but is he like Denmon who can slash and shoot the three or is he more of an athletic 3 pt threat?

    While I'm at it what about White and Booker? Everyone is very high on White but I don't know much about what he brings. Is he a banger that can step out and hit a mid range jumper? Are Booker and Godfrey similar players?
    Allen played some point at MSU, so I am sure that he can slash to the basket.

    White isn't a banger like Fizer was, but he probably has more all around skills. A better 3point shooter, for one thing. Remember, he was initially considered a wing forward out of high school--before he put on a lot of muscle.

    I can't judge Booker, but one reason he was rated so highly as a prep was because he's such a good athlete. That bodes well for a Cyclone team that loves to run the floor!




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
