I could see Cumberland above Kilpatrick after this season, but the bottom line is I want a pure scorer and Kilpatrick is the best we had under Mick. For my second I wanted a big who could fit perfectly with him. I think Clark's do everything mentality is huge.

The 1 dollar players mostly stink. I couldn't justify having any of them on the team except for Diarra so I'll grab him for some inside depth. I didn't want to spend more than 2 dollars on any bench spot so I landed on Guyn and Lojo as guys who can offer versatility from the wing/guard spots off the bench.

Now I have $10.00 for three roster spots. None of the $2.00 players can start on an ideal roster. So now I'm limited to one $4 and two $3. I really wanted Cash on this team, but ultimately I couldn't find a second big for $3.00 that could stay on the floor. DeBerry and Brooks are decent options, but both commit more than 5 fouls per 40 minutes. DeBerry was never a starter and Brooks could never stay on the floor against good teams.

Ultimately I went with Ellis over Justin Jackson and Kyle Washington. I like his length and athleticism. With the guys around him I think he'd be a nice center.

I went with Jenifer as my PG basically because Kilpatrick is going to handle the ball a ton so he can do what he does best and make smart passes / hit open threes. He's not Cash but I think he fills the spot nicely. I went Bishop at small forward to ad some defense.

PG Jenifer $3
SG Kilpatrick $5
SF Bishop $3
PF Clark $5
C Ellis $4

B Guyn $2
B Lojo $2
B Diarra $1

I still don't get what people see with Lance. I feel like we watched 2 different guys at UC. He had some moments, but ultimately was an incredibly inefficient player that didn't make his teammates better. Can't justify spending $5 on him.

I think the only thing I remember about Lance was his dunk on Depaul.

I also remember him throwing the lob to Yancy for what should’ve been the game winning dunk against Gonzaga in the Maui invitational.

Oh, and he also crossed over a Xavier player and made him fall to the ground.

We lost both of those games ??‍♂️

RE: Create the best Cronin Era Bearcat team with $25
In regards to Lance Stephenson -- no way I take him at $5 for his freshman year. He's probably the most talented player of the Mick Cronin era, but freshman-year Lance is nowhere near as good of a college player as senior-year Kilpatrick or junior-year Cumberland.

I'm in. I need to think about this but my initial thought is thr huggs team would dump truck the mick team. Plenty of 2 dollar guys I'd go to war with.

RE: Create the best Cronin Era Bearcat team with $25
Alright. Put some thought in this. This team is unstoppable.

PG Logan $5
SG D'Juan Baker $2
SF Imac $3
PF Fortson $5
C Kenyon $5
B Legree $2
B Kirkland $2
B Monroe $1

I get the three best players of the Huggins era. Kenyon as the rim protector covering for Fortson, while Fortson destroys it on the boards and scores on everyone. Logan could have been National Player of the Year when he was a first team all american. Carrying that team to a one seed is still magical. He played with 4 role players and they were top 10 in adjusted offensive efficiency.

2 dollars for D'Juan Baker seems like an all time steal. Dude was nails. Hit huge shots in the tournament and would be remembered more for them if it wasn't for that freaking tipped bank three.

Imac is the best perimeter defender of the Huggins era. He could also handle the ball and score some. In that lineup he's a perfect glue guy. Defend the **** out of the other team. Give offense when needed, but everyone else can score.

I went with flexibility for my bench. Legree is one of the most underrated Bearcats. Last PG to get UC to the elite eight. He's a true PG and can fit in nicely to spell any of the wing guys. Logan can move off the ball when they play together. Plenty of other scoring options so Legree can faciliate, protect the ball and play defense.

Kenyon and Fortson are playing a ton, but Rod Monroe gives a nice big body for $1.00 to bang in the post and spell them time.

Kirkland is the ultimately swiss army knife for this team. We can play him inside or on the wing to spell guys. Doesn't need to do too much. I'd use him like AK used him until the UConn injury, as depth for everyone.

Seriously. This team isn't being beat.

And other than Conner Barwin, Monroe is the only UC Basketball player (that I know of) to play in the NFL. The gut was an athlete and a bruiser! Thanks for the memory, Mark.
