    Hopefully in a positive way on and off the court.

    I didn't hear Fred's call in show Monday. Did he say Gibson "will start" next year or "has the opportunity to start" next year. Big big difference. Anything said on the call in show pretty much goes in the coach-speak category, because he is always going to give a posiive comment on any player who he is asked about.

    Gibson starting over Ejim or Niang? Yeah not gonna happen. Fred will have a small line up like always and score 80 points a game.

    That line up limits our 3 point shooting, but we could play big, and still play fast with that situation.
    Keep in mind that the guys you just slated in at the 3 and 4 are both currently 38% from 3 on the season, so I don't think it necessarily limits 3 point shooting. Perhaps you mean you wouldn't have a threat from the 5, but really, how many teams do?

    My money says Armadi starts by year end next season. IMO, we desperately need him to. Our guards are going to be much more wet around the ears this season just due to experience alone so an inside presence and extra rebounding fire power would go a long way in countering that.

    If Armadi is just starting to start at the end of the year next year, that probably means we arn't having a great year. The starting line up should NOT change during the end of the season.

    I would agree. That would mean our 3 guard lineup isn't working well offensively.

    Re: Blog: How will the JuCo's affect next season?

    Not true, it just means a player has improved enough to demand a starting spot. I am confident in SDW, Morris & Thomas being able to contribute, but I don't see them snagging rebounds like Clyburn, & Babb do tbo. Niang didnt start to begin this season. The coach has to decided which player rotation is gettng the most bang for his buck. I feel Armadi will hit his stride through the season. Then again, Maybe Fred runs Ejim and Niang at 4-5 but brings Armadi off the bench getting quality minutes at the 5. The more I go over in my head, the more there is no way Niang and Ejim don't both start and Fred likes his guards.
    To start the season, I think he will probably run it like this:
    PG: Bubu/Morris/Naz
    SG: Thomas/SDW/Bluford
    SF: Ejim/Hogue/Okoro
    PF: Niang/Ejim
    C: Percy/Armadi/Niang/Edozie

    Come conference play
    PG: Bubu/Morris
    SG: Thomas/SDW/Bluford
    SF: Hogue/Ejim/Thomas
    PF: Ejim/Niang
    PF: Niang/Armadi

    Way too early of course but that is my estimate.

    I bet our starting 5 at the beginning of the conference season will be Morris, Thomas, SDW, Ejim, and Niang. At least I hope it is.

    Like CW said, Bluford will likely come off the bench. Hogue is really the only one that may start.
    Except we lose Clyburn, Babb, McGee and Lucious. We may be a different type of team next season, we may need them to put in some more points. Melvin may have to play at the 3 a bit more, there are a lot of question marks for next season, starters or not, we'll need good minutes out of these guys.

    Though I could see Fred keeping Bubu as the 6th man and Morris earning the starting nod, but I don't see how SDW starts. Then again, you never know. I do feel we need way more height then that lineup to compete.

    SDW starts if he can score. We will need guys who can really score especially if Bubu starts.

    YellowSnow: That's my dream lineup.

    I predict the non-conf season will be very confusing and probably disappointing while this team tries to figure out where everyone fits. Hopefully Fred and the staff can get it all straightened out by the time conference comes around. There are just so many moving parts next year!
