    Three guard lineup next year?

    Do you think we should use a three guard lineup next year, assuming Craig leaves and Gilstrap stays? I would really like to see a lineup like this next year...

    G: Colvin, Buckley
    G: Phillips, Scott
    G: DG, Boozer
    F: Gilstrap, Dendy, Ejim
    C: Ham, JVB

    I feel like that may be the best distribution of the talent we have next year, which is guard heavy. Thoughts? Anyone know if Mac is considering a three guard lineup?

    Re: Three guard lineup next year?

    How many consecutive years have we heavily relied on freshmen or newcomer guards to make a big impact for us? And how often has it been working out?

    Nah. If Gilstrap stays I don't like a 3 guard lineup. If he leaves, then yes I do.

    G: Colvin
    G: Phillips
    F: Gilstrap
    F: Dendy
    C: Ham

    or

    G: Colvin
    G: Phillips
    G: DG
    F: Dendy
    C: Ham

    Just a guess, but I doubt it...Probably looking at 5 guards, 3 wings, 5 bigs, and 2 walk ons.

    Very true. The one hope here is that this newcomer (Phillips) is a juco player and thus further along physically. Hope he comes in like Taylor did for us or Gilstrap. Really our JUCO pickups under Greg have been solid

    Whether or not it a 2 or 3 guard lineup, Phillips has to be in the starting lineup.

    I guess what scares me about a 2 guard - 2 forward lineup is that we have only one true 4 in Dendy. Besides that we would have a true freshman in Railey, and I don't like to think about him getting to many minutes next year...

    Vanderbeken is a 4, Wilkins(?) is a 4, Brackins(?) is a 4, Railey is a 4...We only have one true center in Ham.

    Hmmm Oliver's not going to play? He will be in the mix.

    I just hope we have a new coach too.

    This line up would work, the line up we have this year would work. Without a new coach to give hope and excite the fanbase and players, this really isn't worth discussing.

    Yeah I thought Oliver will play next year or am I wrong in that thought?

    What are your thoughts on Oliver?

    How many times have you seen him play?

    The one name I don't see is Oliver. From what little we saw of him in the exhibition games I think he will be a major factor next year. When he was on the court he was clearly the best defender. On a side note I have been really pleased with Ham in the Big 12 games. He is becoming a real force defensivly and showing more on the offensive every game.

    Central Iowa - Summer league in WDM and at Practice. Plays a lot like Rashon Clark IMO.
