He can shoot when open but has a tough time using his size inside with no interior skills to speak of. That could change now with Joe Wolf coaching the bigs they have to be better than they were. Keatts came from a system that places zero emphasis on a inside game and he took it to another level. Time will tell but he at least has a shot to develop now.

You have to think that we have to have a better shot at recruiting higher quality big men due to the presence of Joe Wolf.

When was the last time UNCW had a coach that had any particular expertise in developing bigs?

RE: Surprises with the lineup.
The last time we had a big to coach the bigs was probably during Mel Gibson's tenure as head coach. Rick Holdt (sp?) was Mel's assistant. RH was then a recent ncsu player & grad. He was only around for a couple of years. He had been a forward at state. There was also Mike Winnecki (sp?) under Wainwright and Brownell. Mike had been a forward at richmond. No former centers as I recall.
I can't remember a big as big man coach since. Although my memory could be off.

RE: Surprises with the lineup.
Elmore was a raw freshman big man last year. And what I see is a four year practice player or a player with a lot of potential. Maybe we have another Callahan in the making. Coach McGrath apparently has seen a lot of growth in him. We are deep enough to take a chance that he may be a force by his junior or senior year. How about let's lay off the kid and see what happens. What I saw last year was a kid who was thinking too much on the court. Maybe he's now learning to let the game come to him.

"Thinking too much on the court." Is that like Yogi Berra's statement that "You can't hit and think at the same time"?

Another accurate assessment by Yogi. If you're thinking at all about your mechanics when you're at the plate, you're screwed.

Thinking about what kind of pitch you're about to get and where it will be located is acceptable, but once the pitch is on the way, it's all muscle memory.

That's definitely a great way to describe what we saw last year. I'm pumped to see what our new system brings to the table and get this season going. We've definitely seen a lot of players in Seahawk jerseys in the past develop into strong players when we thought they weren't going to make it as freshmen. Hoping Elmore feels that confidence and gives us another "X Factor" teams have to worry about.

From the little I have seen of the 7 footer Kalina on SnapChat, he reminds me of Gettys in his athleticism.

He's a bit more athletic than Gettys and more active.
