    Brackins is a given will he be a 4 or 5? Garret at the 2. Petey at the 1 splitting time with Buckley until he starts later on in the year. Lucca at the 3. Thompson at the 4.

    These 5 will start but i think alot of players will get court time and we may see multiple different lineups during the year.

    At least for the first part of the season and injury permitting:
    Garrett
    Haluska
    Lucca
    Brackins
    Vanderbeeken

    I sure hope we can shoot this year.

    To start the year:

    Diante, Peterson, Lucca, Brackins, Thompson

    I see the rotation going pretty deep this year, at least until we know who is where.

    I'd like to see Buckley play more before I name him my starting PG but....

    Buckley
    Garrett
    Lucca
    Brackins
    Vanderbeken

    This roster really isn't horrible but there's some holes. I hope Haluska is a guy we can count on for some scoring in the backcourt and I'd love to get some hustle and defense from Mann (if healthy) and Pomlee. Not expecting much from Thompson or Hamilton but I wouldn't mind a pleasant surprise.

    I will second this with maybe Haluska over Peterson.

    Haluska, Vanderbeken, and Buckley seeing most of the sub minutes.

    Buckley more than likely won't start as a true frosh.

    DG
    Petey
    Lucca
    Brackins
    AT/VDB

    I think we are set at PG, SF and PF. Petey and Huluska will be battling it out for SG and JVB or AT will be the center.

    I think it will Brackins, AT, Peterson, DG, & Lucca.

    I hope it will be Brackins, AT, DG, Lucca, and Dominique Buckley. I hope Buckley comes along and is better than BP. I hope Buckley can handle the ball better, and play defense better. The defensive part is asking a lot, but I hope he's better than SH too.

    I hope we have recruited good enough players that AT barely has to play, but afraid that won't happen.

    Ah, he'd play. He's skilled enough on defense to do that.
