ODU hoops 21-22 | Predicting the starters
We still have one open slot, but this is the way I think the ODU monarchs will start playing:

5 position Morris, Trice, Shanu

4 position Kalu, Trice

3 position Wade, Long, Greene, O'Connell

2 position Oliver, Smith, best three pt shooter of the freshmen

1 position Hunter, Johnson, Essien, Stines



Some of this could change, depending on the unknown player yet to sign

Mod Edit: Edited the thread title

RE: ODU hoops 21-22 | Predicting the starters
Kalue/Trice- Morris/Shanu backing them up and maybe Morris playing a little 4.

Wade/Long/Oliver/Smith - Brady backing them up

Hunter- backed up by one of the freshman, maybe 2. Hunter may slide over to the wing occationally.

RE: ODU hoops 21-22 | Predicting the starters
I think that based on the current roster of players that we know of -

1 - Hunter (backed up by incoming freshmen guards).

2 - Green or Oliver (backed up by the other, Smith, and freshmen guards).

3 - Oliver or Long (backed up by the other, Wade, Smith, and O'Connell)

4 - Trice or Kalu (backed up the other, and Morris)

5 - Kalu or Trice (backed up by the other, and Morris)

Smith is a transfer and is not a freshman.

He apparently misinterpreted your post.

You don’t think Wade would start or be first off the bench? Do you think he will still be rehabbing?

I don't feel comfortable putting him in as a starter or first off the bench at this time due to his rehab from multiple injuries and being away from the game for so long. Of course if he returns in a few months and shows that he is not slowed down or favoring the injured areas then I would view him as starter worthy, probably at the 3.

I like our squad, but I have concerns at PG. Hunter certainly flashed last year, but he needs to be able sustain the flash this year. I’m crossing my fingers.

RE: ODU hoops 21-22 | Predicting the starters
Its funny, as much talk about our big men as there is on this board, when I look at these lineups, the 4 and 5 are the only parts of the lineup I don't cringe at. We lost our only consistent perimeter player from last year's team that wasn't that good. I like Long, and getting Wade back should help some, but not where we hurt, which is making shots from the perimeter. Maybe the new players bring something to the table, but based on history, I don't have a ton of faith that anybody is going to come in and really be a game changer in their first year under JJ. This team does not look good on paper, and that is not because of the bigs.

RE: ODU hoops 21-22 | Predicting the starters
Our center positions averaged 19 points and 12 rebounds per game or 40 minutes per game in a low possession type offense. Defense and rebounding were good down low.

Our issue is people in the back court needing to step up and hit some shots. Replacing Hunter for curry will help the defense immensely. Obviously it will probably hurt the office as well but having Hunter may help spread the floor a little bit if he can do better than curry did

RE: ODU hoops 21-22 | Predicting the starters
Jeff doesn't recruit the players or stress it in practice to have a good 3 point shooting team. He recruits for other elements of the game and stresses those other elements in practice, then hopes the players can make some 3's during the games. We go through this same wishing and hoping every April - October that they will improve a lot in that area as we look forward to the next season. For one reason or another it never seems to work out, but we really shouldn't be surprised.

Again, how do you feel about whose running PG? The most important position on the court. Ahmad was a GOAT. Now what?

Hunter will be starting at PG on day 1, who knows what the freshman will look like to supplement that, much less challenge the starting spot.

As for Curry (or any seniors last year), I'm not that fired up about it. This time last year, ODU wasn't expecting to have him on the roster. He completed his degree and is free to go desired. I guess I'm at the point now, with the current status/trend of transfers, I don't expect 4-5yr athletes anymore.

I remember Blaine telling players, "You just have a one year scholarship". Now it's players saying you just have me for one year and we'll see after that.

Agree. He wasn't on a path to turn pro and has an opportunity to play in the Big XII. It is his chance to show he can play at a high level and prove he isn't just the best player on a mediocre team. Not sure how anyone can blame him.

Anyone know how JWade's rehab is going? Brutal injury but the kid has Bazemore level work ethic. Holding out some hope there.
