    Possible Lineup vs. Kentucky

    Me and a buddy were talking about this and just wanted to get everyone's thoughts on it.

    Do you think Fred will put a combination of Booker, Gibson, and Royce on the floor at the same time? This would just give us some more height to match up with them better. Booker is still able to space the floor and Royce could play some SF, since that's what he came in as out of high school, and seems to be quicker.

    Or do we try and stick to the match-up problems on offense and not mess with what we've been doing all year?

    I think he will stick with the line-up he has been using. Then depending on how the game goes, one of the teams may have to adjust. Hopefully, it is UK that has to adjust first. I think it all just depends on the flow of the game and where either team is getting its scoring.

    I am just hoping for another starting five of Christopherson, Babb, Ejim, White, and Railey. Worked well on Thursday.

    I do hope Gibson gets playing time. I don't remember him playing at all on Thursday.

    i'd like to see it, maybe only for a short time but it could be a nice curveball, with that combo you have Melvin's ability to make cuts and score at the rim while Booker helps spread the defense out because he can hit the threes, and obviously Royce can get those guys the ball in those situations

    Re: Possible Lineup vs. Kentucky

    We'll see the same starters I'm sure, but I'm thinking McGee and Gibson will see quite a few minutes. I'm really concerned that Scotty will get destroyed on defense. Hopefully he can rain some threes to counter.

    I like to think Fred deliberately didn't play him against UConn so that Kentucky wouldn't prep for him. Gibson has the potential for a big performance tonight

    We don't adjust to other teams. We make them adjust to us.

    Exactly, if he can hit some shots it could help bring their bigmen out of the paint.

    Read the game thread for the game, everybody is pulling a "wtf" and pooping their pants when that graphic came up. Including me.
