    Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    I know people hate these threads but I wanted to see who everyone thinks will be in the starting lineup for the first game.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    I think 1 or 2 will be right eventually, but I think Naz or SDW will start game 1 over Thomas. This is just based off of Percy, who led to team in scoring game 1 w/ 17, starting over Georges early last year.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    I went with the first choice, but there are so many line-ups that look just as effective. I can't wait to see how this turns out.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    I still don't see either Hogue of Ejim playing a lot of three for us. Maybe I'm wrong, but I expect it to be Kane, Thomas, Dorsey-Walker, Ejim, Niang.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    Kane, Ejim, Niang are dead-solid locks.

    I'd say there's a seven man race for the other two spots.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    I think we start big with a front court of Ejim/Niang/Gibson. Same as last year.

    Honestly, any situation where Percy has earned the right to start would be ideal for this team.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    Georges Niang didn't start at the beginning of last season so I'd say Monte Morris and Matt Thomas also probably won't start right away. The line-up will change 5+ times before the conference schedule starts.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    Hogue and Percy will need to step up or Thomas and Morris will be the guards with Kane as a shooting forward. I know Fred will get the producers on the floor in the end.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    I hope Gibson has exponentially improved from last season. I'll give him a break, lots of players get sophomore blues. I would like to see him start if he has earned it. I remember Niang and Gibson working well together in some games last year.

    Most excited to see SDW play. Kid can light it up from 3 and is extremely athletic. He had offers to Indiana and Michigan, so that says something to me. Also excited to see if KJ Bluford can fill the void left by McGee. Not expecting him to be another McGee completely but if he can be half the player McGee was plus better on defense that'd be great.

    Re: Who will be the starting lineup for the first game?

    Also, forgot to mention but Naz Long is another player that better be ready to step up. Coaches raved about him in the summer and rightfully so. He is a big guard and it looks like he has improved his jump shot a ton and he can get into the lane with his size. More so, he wants to be great on defense which is something you can't "teach" the player has to have the right attitude that "I'm going to shut down the player I'm guarding" We're going to need that this year.
