    Concern for next year

    While I am loving the idea of stockpiling the likes of Darien Williams and possibly Anderson/Hollowell for two years down the road, I'm wondering about our available bodies for next year.

    We have 11 scholarship players set for 14-15. One is McKay, out until semester. That makes 10. Nader likely faces a suspension to start the season and who knows for how long - that makes 9 for a while.

    Leaves little margin for error, such as an injury, academic casualty, freak illness, foul trouble, etc.

    We can be great next year - I'd hate to jeopardize that with low scholarship numbers.

    Nader won't miss anything but patsies.

    Yes let's go after all the high caliber high school players that are available.

    We played 7 people for the most part this year. 7 < 9 I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong) so I think we are good.

    How many did we truly play this year? Not terribly worried.

    Re: Concern for next year

    I'd be stunned if Nader misses more than four games. And nine scholarship bodies isn't that bad, especially considering seven of them played significant and meaningful minutes in the NCAA tournament. It essentially just means Edozie might need to play some to start the season.

    Usually seven. It was eight when Edozie started to get some more minutes around the Big 12 tournament.

    Another thread about having a thin bench? What are we, Hawkeyes?

    No fear. We'll go out and beat teams yet again.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I assume you are including the Iowa game in this category?

    Re: Concern for next year

    I don't think you should be concerned.

    Nader will likely only be out for a few games. Usually, those first 3 games are against cupcakes anyways (except this past season)

    But even with the 9 scholarship players, we'll still likely have a solid rotation of 7

    Morris
    Naz
    BDJ
    Hogue
    Niang

    Custer and Thomas off the bench

    with SDW and Edozie playing spot minutes

    Re: Concern for next year

    BDJ replaces Kane, Hogue moves into Ejims role and Nader steps in for Hogue. Nader will miss no more than 1 or 2 games unless he does something stupid again. Nothing else is different until McKay is eligible. Naz, Thomas and Morris are all a year older with experience. No worries.
