RE: UNCW Basketball Schedule
It will be interesting to see the style of play Mcgrath implements, and how it translates with this roster. Because of the complete uncertainty of coach, style, players, we could end up anywhere from 1st. to last.

Have to agree, but my guess is the middle of the pack while it gets figured out.

I think anything less than a top 4 finish in the caa would be a disappointment with the players we have on the team.

How's Furman looking? They are clearly our best non Conf home game. They made a CIT run last year

UNCW should not lose at home against that non conference schedule.

Mixing Claflin and Alcohol leads to scheduling Division III opponents to pad your record.

The next thing you know, the Athletic Department will start mixing Claflin, alcohol, AND weed - then next year they will be scheduling the Sweet Briar Women's College JV team. After all, "it doesn't hurt your RPI"....

Claflin must be a gateway drug. Need to break the cycle of addiction

WG-Jaylen Fornes-excellent shooter and play maker-will make hoops you can count on that. Richmond and Gary.

WF-Estime and/or Fornes....not bad.

PF- Cacok-nuff said. Elmore who will eventually be able to pick and pop with the best of them with that shot presentation.

C-Sallah,Bryan and Kalina. Two true centers and a hybrid that does the little things.

That isn't bad at all. Fornes will eventually get his period-he's very talented on the offensive end. Question will be how quickly Estime evolves. PG will hold it's own on both ends. Cacok will get his. How much production do you get at the other post is another question? Defense will be better because it couldn't be worse and we have excellent size in the frontcourt. More answers than questions to me. Any time that you have experience at the PG position, you have solidity. I expect an upper division finish in the CAA. And, they still can get another player or two to augment the WF position and/or best available/sit out xfer.

What is the current scholarship situation? We currently have one available for 2017-18, correct? Then, after next year we lose Talley, Powell and Bryan, so depending on how we handle the current open scholly, we'll have 3-4 heading into 18-19.

This upcoming season, we'll have three seniors, four in the junior class (Richmond, Cacok, Sallah and Kalina), four in the sophomore class (Taylor, Fornes, Elmore and Cylla [transfer ineligible to play in '18]), and two in the freshman class (Gary and Estime).

As I look at the roster and all of the newcomers, there is reason to be excited. We know what we have in Cacok. He'll be used differently and more will be expected of him this year, so I wouldn't say that he's a given, but he'll be the leader on this team. We also have several guys that were three-stars out of high school in Taylor (PG), Estime (SG), and Kalina ©, plus in 18-19 we're adding another three-star wing in Cylla. I'm not making any proclamations, but I think we're fielding talented teams. The potential is there! I'd like to see us in the upper half next year and competing for another NCAA birth in 2019. The starting lineup to open the season in 2018 could be Taylor, Estime, Cylla, Cacok and Kalina with Richmond, Fornes and Sallah being key reserves.

Fornes and Talley will start in all likelihood. Cylla has to sit a year. Sallah has a really good chance to start as well.
