The season is very young and from practice the coaches are developing clear ideas about their roster. Still, I will hazard a prediction about our starting five: Magee, Jackson, Murphy, Stumpe, and Goodwin.

Earliest off the bench will be: Hoover, Theme-Love, Pegram, Jones, Bigelow, Hollowell, and Aluma. We will be able to stay fresh; as Coach Young says, we are as deep as we have been in recent memory.

Thoughts?

I don't know as much as others do about basketball, but I don't think we have a signature defensive guard yet. There's a strong correlation between us finding that guy and being successful. Derrick Brooks was that guy last year, and we went on a small run, but when he was injured, we stumbled. In the past, Karl Cochran was that guy as well,

I think Theme-Love may be the guy for that, but as I said, I'm not as knowledgeable about these things and no one has differentiated themselves at this position yet.

Good observation YT. Early signs are that improved guard defense has been a priority in the off season ... we shall see.

Good points LD and YT. I cannot argue with the starting five. They are a solid group. as well as the others. the entire roster is full of talented players. Of course I like Magee and Jackson. Stumpe and Murphy too. The unknown is Goodwin. Only thing I heard about him is that he broke a goal while on their trip to Portugal. But I have the feeling he is going to be a good one for us. Of the other players the one I like the most is Aluma. Although I still like remaining players. Don't get me wrong. I just like Aluma a little better. No doubt about it the future is bright and we should have many good, winning seasons in the future. GO TERRIERS !!!!!

This is exactly why I am erring on the side of caution about my optimism for this year’s team...defense. It was lacking at times last season, which is why we failed to win the SoCon. We cannot win consistently without good defensive play no matter how good our offense is.
