    Do we need more height?

    I'm just watching Mizzou vs Cinn. and Cinn is killing Mizzou in the paint. Even though Mizzou may have good positioning, the Bearcats are getting rebounds and put backs like crazy. I would love to have a guy that is 6'9 or taller and is athletic like I have seen on some teams today.

    it wouldn't hurt to have a guy like Smith from UCLA

    that guy is a force when he wants to be

    We could use more height but I don't think we need it to be successful.

    Would help if Mizzou also would have made some shots tonight...

    Re: Do we need more height?

    We absolutely need height, always, always, always. Bragging about our great 6'1 rebounding guard isn't necessarily a good thing.

    Railey will be good before he's done.

    I didn't watch a ton of the Missouri game, but Cincinnati looks big, strong and athletic. Rare combination.

    I think he could be a starter his senior year. The next two years, assuming he puts in the work, he will be getting solid bench minutes, and his job will be simple: disrupt opponents. With depth, you can afford to make those "attention" fouls, which is perfect for when you need to destroy the opponent's offensive flow.

    For now he lacks toughness. He needs to channel his inner Homan in order to earn a starting spot.

    Re: Do we need more height?

    I agree with the OP though, I think we need at least one more 6'10 or bigger.

    Re: Do we need more height?

    Maybe the teams trip to Europe this year will get the attention of some 7 footers over there. Hopefully one that does more than shoot from the outside!

    I think he showed toughness towards the end of the season so I'm not too worried about that.

    Re: Do we need more height?

    I'll take fast, athletic 6'7"-8" type big men over a slow, soft guy like JVB every time. The 7-footers that are athletic and aggressive are not easy to come by, so for now we're going to have to be faster, and more athletic than the teams we play.

    Booker, White, Godfrey give us the speed to do it, IMO.
