  1. Good to know coach is just as confused as we are about what the rotation ultimately will be. Seems to be a close race among a lot of the players. I am beyond curious how this thing will shake out. I say good to know because our perception (us internet guys) of having quite a bit of talent that is capable of playing is in line with what Fred is seeing.
  2. Would you consider him more talented than Venson Hamilton? Wilhelm is certainly more versatile than Venson but he was an absolute beast in the interior.
  3. I agree Norm. I figured he was Kavas 2.0. Just another guy who couldn’t shoot with that N on the jersey. Knowing his story now, it is easy to envision a role for him as a sniper coming in off the bench. Like many things in life, timing is critical and it doesn’t appear to be playing out well for Lakes. He may have a few moments here and there but probably few and far between. If we are unfortunate with a front court injury, though, he gives us a guy I think most of us would be comfortable sliding into the rotation.
  4. I am pretty sure he wants a shot at the NBA. If he leaves we probably had a really good year.
  5. Probably not a great comparison but I wonder if they see him filling out some and being a Melvin Ejim type player for us. Decent outside shot, athletic, good motor and not afraid to attack the basket. With his frame I don’t think he will be 180 for long when he hits a college S&C program.
  6. If Fred and Matt flew out to watch him work out and offered on the spot, they saw something they really liked. I trust Fred’s ability to assess players completely. Welcome to the family Denim!
  7. I felt way better about our outlook when Verge signed on. Still not 100% on Verge as a playmaker for others but some of the practice clips make him look like he can pass a bit. At first I thought he was just a better version of Kobe (a scoring PG). Trey can play the point but that doesn’t mean he is a point guard. He is more of a combo guard who can spell at the point but you don’t want him as your primary ball handler. At least that is what my eyes tell me.
  8. I think we pretty much know who the starters are. As far as reserves in the rotation, Wilhelm appears to be the top front court sub. I can’t see a scenario where Tominaga doesn’t play. Edwards and Wilcher gotta play, right? Edwards is extremely athletic and has great skills. Wilcher is another shooter and we are recruiting his superstar brother. That puts us at 9, which is a large number. That leaves Kobe, Andre and Lakes on the outside looking in. I think any of those three have the ability to be contributors if the need arises. Man we look stacked. Inexperienced, but very talented roster now. It will be interesting to see how well this post ages because rarely does the rotation I expect to see preseason end up that way in reality.
  9. The one thing I know about rotations is they rarely have more than 8 players by the time teams are deep into conference play. I remember Tulane with the “posse” having 10 players consistently play, but that is it in my recollection for a team going that deep. It mainly has to do with getting the chemistry right. With that said, you can make a credible argument for 11 players possibly being in the rotation. If Lakes has his 3 point shot back he could have a role. I think we may be more surprised by what 2-3 players end up NOT being in the rotation.
  10. The irony to me is Webster would likely be the guy Tominaga would take minutes from if he earns time in the rotation.
  11. from what I recall they owned the SWC. I remember watching Quinn Grovey back in my highschool days
  12. I’ll be very disappointed if we don’t reel him in. Before he was recognized as a legit player he was begging for an opportunity to play here. I want some kids that bled red in our program. And throw in the fact he can seriously stroke it from 3….he would be a big get.
