someone might try to Cacok block us


Close the board, no post will ever beat this one.

I count two definite starters, and two guys you need to lead to believe that they will be starters. There's one spot open.


I understand where you're coming from. But I have a hard time believing both Dixon and Keita sat out a year to come here and being content to come off the bench. As far as Clark and Owens, they have the ability to transfer too. Gotta keep them happy.

It has and will continue to happen with Kofi Cockburn.

Clearly those jokes should be focused around the clap.

You have 2019-20 to keep them happy -- neither Dixon nor Keita would transfer after 2018-19 if they had to come off the bench next season, especially considering that one of them will definitely have to do so anyway. And neither Clark nor Owens would be able to transfer if after a few games next season one of them had to come off the bench. Aside from that, an insider on Johnny Jungle said recently that Owens returning is still up in the air.

Assume this is the same Tubby Smith who quit Tulsa to go to Georgia, quit Georgia to go to Kentucky, quit Kentucky to go to Minnesota (only job he stuck around long enough to get fired from) and quit Texas Tech to go to Memphis? LOL

Have we determined that WW is better than / deserves to start over Keita? Next year may witness several ‘starting’ lineups, one a 3-guard setup, with Ponds, Simon, and Dixon—backed by Trimble(?), and Williams; the other a traditional lineup of 2 guards, Clark, Owens (?!!?), Keita—backed by Roberts, Diakite, another big(?).

Our line up is a no brainer next year.
Ponds and Dixon start in the back court.
Simon, Clark and Owens up front. Clark shoots the 3 so well and can board. Simon is a great rebounder and scores best on driving to the basket.
If Dixon goes out Simon slides to the 1, Clark to the 3 and Keita comes right in. Keita will also back up Owens in the post.
Roberts and ME should each get 10 plus minutes a game at the 4 and 5 and Williams should get 10 plus minutes a game at the 2.
We will see what kind of shape Trimble gets in over the next 6 months.
No clue as to Yakwe or Diakite right now but wish them both the best.
Seems like we have a deep team but that is what I thought this season, so who knows ?

My take fwiw is we don't need to get too concerned at this point about who starts next year. It is more critical that we get a big man, whether through grad transfer or JUCO option, who has a low post game, can rebound and give us significant minutes. While I expect both Owens and Keita to get plenty of minutes at 4/5, not sure either of them will give us much of a low post offense which we need. From reading posts of others far more knowledgeable than I on the newcomers, seems like next year should be a learning year for Roberts and Marcellus. I would hope that we have a core rotation of Ponds, Simon, Clark, Dixon, Owens, Keita, the to be identified big man whether WW or someone else, with either Williams or Trimble serving as 4th guard. It will be great to finally have some depth. Of course all this can change if not everyone returns.
