So as I understand it next year's roster is:
PG
Carter
Hill
Bostick

2-3 G
D Smith
Brown
Whitley
Sivils

F/C
Gilmore
M Smith
Kirby
McMullen
Williams
Robinson

I like the flexibility of having 3 PGs on the roster with the possibility of sliding Quanny or Tevin over in a pinch. I think we are still loaded in the frontcourt by non-P5 standards.

So who starts to begin the season? If Hill is all that he looks to be on film I'd say:
Hill
Brown
D Smith
Williams
Robinson

It certainly is a talented roster, maybe the best ever (that’s for you Smidge :lol: ). All will compete for playing time and starting spots. As for the lineup you posted Marshall, that is a possibility, butI think if Whitley ‘s healthy he may break into the lineup. Also, while Robinson and Williams are our two best bigs, one reason you might not start both is to try and make sure both don’t get into foul trouble. Much better to make sure you have one on the floor the entire game, and if possible, both on the floor at the end of the game.

If this is the same Justice Hill that committed to Arkansas in high school, we may be in for something special.

No idea but usually it’s academically related, but again I have no idea. Btw he not only committed but signed with the Razorbacks.

Was that the time of the coaching change at Arkansas?

It was. He was part of the last class signed by the coach who went to St Johns? Anderson?

He actually graduated high school early and enrolled at Arkansas for the spring semester in January 2019, but transferred after Anderson was fired.

I don't believe there was any comment that indicated that either of the transfers were "can't miss." While they were capable of playing quality minutes, they both were raw. Kamba has some upside, and may develop, but considering what was here, and what was coming, his decision to transfer was in his best interest. I just hope that we stay healthy next year.

My Dad’s brother lives in Little Rock. He said article in the paper mentioned Arizona and Texas Tech had been interested in him. Only 5’11”. But, big things sometimes come in small packages.

Don’t we want Carter on the floor as much as possible?

Hill
Carter
Brown
Williams
Robinson

DaQuan was All State PG in Mississippi. 3 point shot inconsistent last year. I figured he be back up PG. But, I think several of you may disagree with me on that. Very interested in seeing what Whitley can do off the bench.

Honestly we just need consistent scoring out of the backcourt to take some pressure off of Tevin. Whoever makes that leap, and can cut down on turnovers will see time, IMO

If everybody is as good as we think they are, we should press, run, and play aggressive the entire game. We'll have plenty of depth, and fouls to give (even in the OVC).
