    What 11 guys would you select from the last 5 years

    To be in this position to make a Big 12 and NCAA tourney run. Your starting 5 and bench from players of the last 5 years who you think would give us the best chance to go all the way.

    Re: What 11 guys would you select from the last 5 years

    Could Diante and Royce play well together, or would each one need the ball too much for the other?

    I'd replace Anderson with Vanderbeken, but otherwise this^

    Might be an issue, but I think Diante had the ball all the time because he had to. No one else could really create their own shot, at least in his senior year.

    Shouldnt Wes Johnson be included in the possible players or was he more than 5 years out?

    Re: What 11 guys would you select from the last 5 years

    Starters:
    G Garrett
    G Anderson
    G Clyburn
    F Brackins
    F White

    Bench:
    G Christopherson
    G Babb
    G McGee
    F Ejim
    F JVB
    F Niang

    12th man only in rotation if White/Garrett in foul trouble:
    G Lucious (he's not bad, but don't necessarily need another ball handler)

    Could see Scotty starting over Jake, too.

    Re: What 11 guys would you select from the last 5 years

    G. DG
    G. Thug Life
    G. Clyburn
    F. RW
    F. Craig

    Bench
    Babb
    Anderson
    Ejim
    Niang
    Tyrus
    Gilstrap

    Out of this I think Gilstrap and Jake have more upside than JVB, which is why I left JVB off the list.

    Re: What 11 guys would you select from the last 5 years

    I went off of previous play which eliminates almost our whole last years recruiting class, and people are gonna think I'm nuts but:

    Start:
    G-DG
    G Babb
    F-Clyburn
    F-Brackins
    F-White

    Reserves:
    C- Hamilton
    F-Ejim
    F- Niang
    G/F-Gilstrap
    G Korie
    G Christopherson

    Plenty of scoring in the starters, but good mix of energy guys, rebounding and bench scoring in reserve.

    Edit: Due to respect for DG, he has been added.

    Korie over Diante makes you nuts.

    Re: What 11 guys would you select from the last 5 years

    Wow, looking at the list of available players show how we have been lacking in depth for true post players. Sure we had some really good ones in White and Brackins but after that it gets thin.

    Re: What 11 guys would you select from the last 5 years

    Start:
    1 - Garrett
    2 - Scotty
    3 - Clyburn
    4 - Royce
    5 - Brackins

    Reserves:
    Ejim
    McThree
    Lucious (Would NEED a second PG)
    Babb
    Niang
    Gilstrap

    Fred seems to like his setup of 3 guards and smaller forwards that can shoot.
