8. LaQuincy Rideau- 6”1 210 lb SO PG from Gardner-Webb
29.1 mpg, 14.2 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 5.2 apg, 3.0 spg, 0.3 bpg, 3.4 tpg, .470 FG%, .579 FT%, .390 3P%

Laquincy Rideau was the leader of the surprisingly solid Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Builldogs. Gardner -Webb finished their season with 19 wins and a top 175 ranking per KenPom. Rideau was a huge part of that as he led the team in points, assists, steals, getting to the free throw line, and was second in rebounds. On offense, he used his surprising strength to push past defenders and get to the rim. Once he penetrated the defense, he was very adept at finding cutting teammates or open spot up shooters. He himself has good accuracy from range but it’s not his go to weapon. He would sometimes try to do too much himself, leading to his very high 3.4 tpg. On defense, he was an absolute terror. His quick hands could pick anybody’s pocket. He had the 4th highest steal rate in all of Division 1. And not just against Big South level competition. Against SMU, Pitt, and Nebraska, Rideau managed 15 steals…that’s 5 steals per game against high major offenses. In one game, he managed a double double with 15 points and 10 steals. He was three rebounds away from a triple double and 6 assists away from a quadruple double. Rideau could absolutely contribute at a high major program as a veteran ballhandler and a disruptive perimeter defender.

We could use his defensive tenacity. It's odd to see a PG with a sub 58% FT% though. The good news is that is fixable.

I was hoping Pope or some other quality big man would have commited to us already. I've been waiting for the signing period to begin so we can find out who else is coming on board with Brown, Buchanan and Morant.

We could have Charles Brown as a junior next season. But, he was asked to leave. We could have Gilbert Thomas as a sophmore next season. But, he's moved on as well. I assume we have someone at least as good as those two if not better coming in as a replacement. Maybe I should stop assuming things?

I saw Gilbert today outside the Keg. Looked like he was walking from CFSB. Still sporting his Racer basketball gear. Hate to see him go. Hope he wasnt asked to leave as well.

By reading his tweet, it seems like he wanted to stay. I wish him the best. He'll be a big plus to whatever team he plays for. I just want to know who is going to replace him. I'm getting kind of nervous about it.

Yeah, this is not looking good with the potential he could of had the next 3 years. Who is coming in that has more potential than him with his size ? Three empty seats don't help much.

Thomas could at least rebound and score. That is more than some still on scholarship could do.

Yeah he definitely had big potential here. Hopefully he wasn't asked to leave.

I remember at Kentucky, Wayne Turner shot about the same from the FT, it was odd why he never got better.
