Jemerrio and McCants aren't true 4's. Wilkins is also the only true 5 on the team. Your backup 5 is your starting 4. Not the best situation. I was just expecting them to add another big man for depth. A 5 is what I was thinking they would do.

A "true 5" in basketball is a dying breed. It's all stretch 3's and 4's.

Sure for the big guys not for mid-majors. Size is a big advantage at the less skilled level.

RE: SWAC Player of the Year Commits to New Mexico State
New Mexico State was #1 in rebounding last season with Chuha, Jones, and Wilkins. Our rebounding should improve with a healthy Marlon Jones ready for the season.

NMSU will still be one of the top rebounding teams in the WAC, especially since Coach Jans will focus on defensive rebounding.

NMSU played virtually all of last season with a from court of Wilkins at the 5, Chuha at the 4, and either Taylor or Haley at the 3; with J. Jones coming off the bench to sub for either Wilkins or Chuha. Bhullar played very few minutes last season. And yet, it was enough to win the WAC tournament. What has really changed from a year ago? Wilkins, Chuha, and J. Jones are back. And, I guaranty you Marlon Jones will see more playing time than Bhullar saw last season. And, we still have a very athletic Johnny McCants on the bench. At the 3 position, 6'6 Stewart and 6'3 Lofton will definitely be an offensive upgrade from 6'5 Taylor and 6'7 Haley.

But a 6'3" guard playing the three is going to be at a total disadvantage at the defensive end

I doubt that will be a problem.

Not really. Last season before Sidy Ndir got injured NMSU started a three guard line up with 6'0 Baker at the point, 6'2 Ndir at the two guard and 6'3 Huggins player the three (wing guard). After Ndir got injured, Haley and Taylor split time at the three.

NMSU won the WAC with only one true D1 point guard (Baker) and virtually a three man rotation at the four and five spot (Chuha, Wilkins, and Jemerrio Jones). In fact NMSU made similar adjustments which helped them win the WAC championship game; by playing 6'3 Chance Ellis at the three spot in the line up in the 2nd-half.

You keep saying you won the WAC but you lost the regular season.

CUSB's "regular" season championship is just as hollow as NMSU's was the year before. All the regular seasons determines is the seating in the WAC tournament. I always want NMSU to win the regular season but it is winning the WAC tournament which defines a program nationally. NMSU has won 5 out of 6 WAC tournament but only won the regular season twice in the same span.
