RE: Jude Akabueze
I think Boyce will be starting at least by conference season if not sooner. He is on one of the top HS teams in the country, and playing well against some of the top HS and AAU teams in the country. CUSA competition may be a drop off in competition for him.

I’d be irritated if we took smallwood off of scholarship, he isn’t the best player in the world, but he loves UAB and seems like a great teammate.
I hope Hurtado doesn’t go anywhere. I still have high hopes for him.
This will be Scootie’s Team the next three years. Hopefully he knows that and isn’t looking to play anywhere else.

I don’t see Lavender staying, and i sure don’t see MCCoy on schcolarship again.

Lavender is 100% leaving after the season.

Hurtado was redshirted and isn't going anywhere.

Sullivan isn't going anywhere.

Like you said this is Scootie's team going forward. I'd expect this starting 5 next season:

Norton
Bryant
Gueye
Sullivan
Darling

Off the bench: Boyce, Jude, etc., etc.

Currently they are trying to fill two spots for next season. Obviously a juco big is the high priority. A grad transfer is possible too.

Any word on Pearson?

Nope. He may very well find his way in to the mix but I haven't seen enough of him.

Absolutely agree. He's the real deal.

Sorry, I meant his eye injury. Think I read he has had two surgeries

Deion is leaving?






Jude shouldn't get that many minutes.
Gueye shouldn't play the five.
Go get Nick Marshall and Kentrevious Jones let them battle for the 5 spot.
No way in h*** we should sign any big 6-7 or shorter
Boyce probably starts day one.

I'm hoping to see him in person this weekend at the National Hoopfest in Memphis. They play Simeon out of Chicago, which I believe is a top HS team as well.

I hope this JUCO big to be named later is a starter next year and not Gueye. Based on what I've seen, he isn't anywhere near ready for that.

I agree but if Gueye can work hard over the summer and put on 15+ pounds, maybe he is ready for more than spot minutes at the 4/5.

We made the NCAA with starting 4s at 6-5 and 6-6. Ball & Eddins against MUCH better conference teams. So we don't have to have 2 bruisers down low. But, either way, I think we are looking at a down year next year. Nearly impossible to replace Cokes production. Unless we happen across a guy like the new guy at MTSU. His name escapes me right now. Odds of that are very slim. But wait, he is only 6-7. Little Dee wouldn't take him because he is too short. LOL

Poor guy hasn't watched much basketball in his life.

Boyce may take Darling's starting spot. Maybe not right away, but as the season goes.

RE: Jude Akabueze
I don’t think we are looking at a down year next year. We will have a lot of productive players returning, and some nice pieces coming in. I think we are a player or two away from being a real contender next year. No one person is going to replace Cokley, but i think we can make up for that loss with improvements in five or six of the guys currently on the roster.

We don't have to take him off scholarship. But if he isn't going to play as he hasn't for the last 3.3 years, its incredibly stupid to waste another years basketball scholarship on him. You can make him a manager and keep him on scholarship if you want. But he has already graduated. Its unlikely he will play. Do we owe the guy his doctors degree?

The only difference is if he was a manager, he couldn't play the mop up minutes.

I bet he'd like it at Montevallo, he would play a lot more.
