    Makes sense, especially since the forward spot seems to be relatively loaded. If Jantunen or Carlson can play, they may be big enough to give back up minutes defending a 5.

    At this point, our team is pretty much set. If we bring in someone else, it likely won't be a difference maker. Larry's hopes (our hopes) are now squarely on either Rylan Jones being ready or on Both Gach making a sophomore leap.

    That said, the kid hit 45% from outside. He can at least shoot. Nothing "yikes" about that.
    Yeah, there has to be a major, major flaw in his game or his body that kept bigger name programs away. Because guys that shoot mid-40s from 3 are rotation guys anywhere.

    That starting 5 doesn't inspire me from a rebounding perspective. We thought Loveridge was playing out of position at the 4 -- wait until this staff sees it's never getting more than 6 RPG from its starting power forward.

    Rebounding does look like a concern, but the backcourt is so iffy that every other concern pales by comparison. Tillman is a good rebounder. Maybe Thione will be as well.

    I think it is probably that he is 6', 6'1 and averaged less than one assist per game.

    If you watch this game, he is essentially playing the 3. He floats at times on both ends. But man when he gets going, watch out.

    Hopefully Lahat can help out there. Also, I think Jantunen will be the first 3/4 off the bench and he has been a very good rebounder. Hopefully it translates.

    I think maybe for that reason Battin belongs in the starting 5. He has potential.

    I think a starting five of

    The Hat - 5
    Makul - 4
    Tillman - 3
    Timmy Buckets - 2
    Gachscratchfever -1

    Jones, Battin & Carlson

    Doesn't have the elevator you need to play the 5 -- too slow. Would never disrupt a shot inside.

    Gach at the point is a horrible idea, unless he's found a way to take care of the ball better.

    We tried it a couple times this year. He got killed trying to defend the big men.

    If we're gonna field a defense that again ranks in the 280s in efficiency, we might as well play him, right?

    Additionally, his rebounding numbers on a per minute basis were about equal to Tillman and Allen anyway.

    I think having Rylan and Both in the backcourt, plus Donnie T's late season discovery as a stopper will help us move up. If Lahat/Carlsen can be deterrents at the rim, it will help us even more.

    are we going to be quick/long enough to switch and play man, or are we going to be stuck playing non-rebounding, porous zone?
