What I am saying is, midway through the second half, our starting big's are either all tuckered out or in foul trouble.

I don’t believe this is true at all about the rotation. Duke has 4 guys playin over 32 minutes, 1 at 25, and the rest are 13.1 minutes or below. Short rotations can work, it’s all about how you’ve built your team and the style you want to play.

Duke is on TV every night. They have more timeouts for rest breaks, and they are averaging 48 ppg in the paint, and not as dependent on rest for their shooter's legs.

Interesting. I'm not sure I agree with you. I don't think either guy has proven they deserve minutes in a close game.

And remember, Gene didn't always go very deep. A lot of times, he kept it pretty tight at 7-8 except in rare instances.

Andersons style allows you to play more guys. But I'm not convinced its "better" just because we had some good seasons.

I think Rob is going to be reluctant to use either unless foul trouble necessitates. (In close games)

I think our top 3 are a lot better than the next 2.

And, without foul trouble, you can go 33,30 and 17 minutes.(80 total)

Foul trouble is a reality though.

Despite Gueyes two 3 pointers in one game, I'm not convinced he makes us better at the 3 or the 4.

He has lots of upside so he was a great signee. And we will absolutely need him this year.
Smallwood, I'm just not sure. Seems to be a great kid with a great attitude but I have not seen even a hint of Allen Ogg in him.
It is not all about offense. We are vulnerable in the paint (on the defensive end of the court). Winning games is all about "defense". Gueye and Smallwood are ideal tall's who could be placed in the middle of the lane on the defensive end of the court. There is no question in my mind that these two would be quite effective in altering and/or blocking shots in the lane. There is nothing I like seeing more than for opposing teams having problems scoring down low and for us to bring down one defensive rebound after the next to regain possession of the ball. I'm not saying do it all of the time. I am just saying utilize these two guys to specifically wreak havoc in the lane on the defensive end of the court even if it is for only several minutes at a time. "DEFENSE! DEFENSE! DEFENSE!".

RE: Anyone want to speculate on the UAB Memphis line?
Okay, i can start looking through every team in the country.

Memphis has 7 guys who play 15+ minutes
Auburn has 8.
La tech and Mtsu have 7.

You don’t have to roll ten deep for 15-20 minutes each to be a successful team. We have 7 over 15 minutes, and lavender is just a shade under 15, that make up our main rotation.

Gueye has 15 fouls in 54 minutes. Let’s not worry about this fact though.

I think Smallwood should play 15-20 minutes a night. The Fastest 40 wouldn't have been possible without Gabe Kennedy's defensive presence at the back of the trap, and Gabe was no speedster.

And we need to have a BIG set, to force mismatches for Cokley & Haha.

Smallwood,
Cokley or Sullivan
Haha or Gueye
Lavender
Bryant

UAB -4.5. Opened at -3.5.


Memphis @ UAB

UAB -4.5

OPEN: -3.5

I don't wager on sports but I always like to compare what I guess to the actual line.

Those bookies have kenpom subscriptions and I don't.

I will be happy with a 1 point win with no time left on the clock from a free throw.

But, if this team plays to their potential, we can send tubbys boys home with a 15+ point loss.


Should be higher than that, seriously. Yall, plus the handicappers don't realize how bad this Memphis team really is. Ain't the same ole Memphis team ya'll are use to seeing. UAB by 10....Leaving for Orlando tomorrow, so it's all good.

Y'all are 3-1. I'm not sure our guys would beat a team of Junior High kids if the game gets tight.

AND

Good Luck In Orlando !

I totally agree with you that we need to have a BIG set. It not only forces mismatches for Cokley and/or Haha and/or Sullivan, but it also adds to "rebounding on both ends of the court" and to "defense in the paint".
