Neither one is really a PG but if one is forced to do it- God help us
I’d like to see a style like Loyola Marymount of the early 90’s—-score 120 puts a game and play fast. I’m only kidding unless it would work.
Is this the second time you failed to read when the starting PG goes to the bench Johnson plays Point Forward?
But let’s say I said what you claim, does that mean you hated Georges bringing the ball up when Morris was playing?
Aren’t many thinking Johnson will see time at the 4?
In addition bricked 3’s lead to run outs for the opposition. It is much easier to defend when they have to inbound after a made shot.
No, it’s the second time he’s aptly pointed out you have little to support your notion that Johnson is a Point Forward.
But I do share your optimism! I think he can be one, although I also thought that of Talley, and Prohm didn’t make that happen.
Based on who we’re going after Prohm’s either planning on starting Johnson at the 4, Solo with Conditt the 5, or thinking Foster can start day 1. Shayok did play the 4 a lot last year, when Wigs came in for THT. Of course you had 6-5 NWB and Hali on the floor with him. Just land Buggs and Turner:
Solo or Conditt
I like that lineup. I think people are sleeping on Buggs. He has about the most of what we need. Toughness, facilitator, called a “Floor general”. Think we could even make it work with Buggs and Gomez, but would be tougher defensively.
Bolton would have to become a much better decision-maker & assist guy during the off-season to be our PG next year. Prohm places a huge premium on less than 10 turnovers per game. The way Bolton played last season, he'd avg. 5 TO's a game by himself!
Bolton is a solid off guard an IMO will be much more effective getting to the rim from the wing vs. top of key.
I am 100% confident Prohm will land a strong PG. He can promise 30+ mpg and track record developing PG's.
IMO a big disadvantage with players not being on campus is the staff's ability to track off-season development. As a fan base we are focussed on the transfer market to get ISU back to the NCAA Tournament. While that is in part true, IMO the off-season development/maturity of guys like Bolton, Jackson and Conditt is equally as important.
That’s great! I agree, Bolton isn’t a pg and we need to sign one.
But the question was who plays pg between Gomez and Bolton? I’ll go with the guy that can finish and keep the shooter off ball. As unimpressive as Bolton was at pg in the Big 12, we don’t know if Gomez would do better.
I guess I have zero expectations on Carton and he’d need a waiver. Didn’t others say Turner is a lock to mizzou earlier?
might see time there once in a while, but he is more a three from where I sit
I’d love to add all three! Then DJ as the redshirt.
Anyone find full games on Buggs?
If Gomez isn't the type of PG I described, then IMO Prohm has another PG he is recruiting that fits the mold.
I think a lot of posters on this board thought Nick would lose minutes to Wigginton in 2018/19. Never happened, Prohm will go with a guy who takes care of the ball.
IMO this is going to be a long summer, with guys entering the portal and making recruiting visits in June & July.
Tell that to T Lewis
Don't get me wrong, I don't think Terrell Gomez is the "saving grace" for the program but I think he will get solid minutes and production offensively. He has a nice looking shot from deep.
I would actually say development of the current guys is more important than grad transfers.
Johnson will be the 4 guy bc there is no other guy on the roster than can play that position.
I think Johnson probably has to play the 4 because we saw what happens when CSP tries to play two bigs. He would much rather play a stretch 4 who can shoot deep and can penetrate like THT. Also, like the online poster stated, we have no one currently who can play that position.
I'd like to see a 5 guy starting line up of all 7 footers.
I'm only kidding unless it would work..!

I realize the first three are only 6'11" but close enough.
