    I think the the 1-2-3 zone is much more effective. You may have also heard it referred to as the bowling pin defense.

    And, yes, I'll take the over. Easily the over.

    I think Percy plays more minutes than everyone thinks. He might be our best interior defender and he can score pretty well around the rim. He just needs to learn how to pass/not force things.

    I don't think the ability to shoot was really the problem as evidenced by his .656 field goal percentage his freshman year. I think the real problem this year was his shot selection. Generally forcing a tough shot when triple teamed in the post and you have a 40+% 3 point shooter crying from loneliness on the arc it is considered a bad shot.

    I too question Ejim's ability to play the 3. He is versatile but only to an extent. Off the dribble, I'm not sure how effective he is. Can he get by an athletic 3? The style of play he has grown accustomed to, almost out of necessity, is that of an undersized 4. At this point, I can't see him re-molding himself back into the 3 role that he played as a freshman

    Re: Next years lineup/rotation

    I really wish these threads would stop popping up. Nobody knows...and we honestly won't know until the first game.
    buuuuuuut after saying that:

    Palo
    Thomas
    Ejim
    Niang
    Gibson

    First Subs
    Morris for Palo
    Hogue for Gibson (niang to 5 and ejim to 4)

    Next Sub
    SDW/Bluford for thomas
    Amardi for Niang

    Next Sub
    Palo back in for SDW/Bluford (Morris to 2)
    Niang back in for Ejim

    In the end, what I would LIKE to see is Morris play the 2 and Thomas work on playing the 3.
    Ejim needs to stay out of foul trouble.

    So you don't see Long or Okoro providing quality minutes? We probably know more about those 2 than we do about Bluford so far....

    I guess I didn't specify that very well. I was talking about mostly his poor shot selection that you hit on.

    Why does he have to "get around an athletic 3" in order to play the 3?

    I'm guessing if we go to a 3-big offense, Ejim driving won't be our primary offensive play.

    I think it will be necessary considering he isn't a great shooter. He CAN knock down a few 3's, but it definitely isn't his greatest attribute. Having 3 bigs in our lineup will slow it down. Thing of it is, I just don't think Ejim IS a 3 anymore. He can prove me wrong this year, I'd be ok with that, but in my mind, he is this decades version of Rahshon Clark. A 4 in a 3's body.

    .
    If Morris is playing the 2, who is playing the 1? Don't say Bubu either.

    If you want Thomas at the 3, put Dorsey-Walker at the 2 and keep Morris at the 1.

    No. I don't see Okoro playing at all. Naz might get 5 mins a game. Maybe more depending on foul trouble. Naz greatly needs to improve his foot speed if he expects to be able to play in the Big XII. I agree that he showed promise in the CCL and some in the beginning of the season, but with so much talent at guard, It'll be tough to find minutes for everyone.

    I've seen Bluford play. In person and on film. Kids just a natural scorer. When Thomas and Niang (and maybe Ejim or Morris) are out, there aren't too many players left that can create for themselves. KJ is a constant threat. Okoro needs to improve his ball-handling and Naz can't create.

    Bubu at 1, Monte at 2, and Thomas at 3. I think it could work. Monte is a scoring guard and in some parts of the game, I'd really like to see him look to score first instead of running the offense. I'm also looking ahead to the future with Custer coming in at PG. If we don't get Vaughn, Thomas will definitely see time at the 3.

    Davis would be a starter the first day he stepped on campus. Like Tre4ISU posted, your position is determined by who you defend, so Ejim would play the four. On offense, if he has a smaller wing defending him, Ejim is posting him up while Davis and Georges take the posts of the dribble or dump it down to Ejim.

    I like Percy's potential, but our best interior defender? He may not even be our best interior defender named Percy.

    Re: Next years lineup/rotation

    Morris
    SDW OR Thomas
    Hogue OR SDW OR Okoro
    Ejim
    Niang

    Another possibility is Gibson breaks through taking over the 5 and Ejim who tried out for the Olympics as a 2 would play the 3.

    Subject to change if an eligible transfer joins.
