100% agree with Monte. Way too much criticism leveled at this kid. Clark has clearly taken him under his wing. I see him improving this year, but really helping us the following year when Shamorie moves on.

I, too, see his minutes declining, especially if Heron is eligible
Quite frankly, when I saw the title of the thread, I expected to read that he is transferring
I hope he doesn't - if he gets into better shape, he can be a rotational player in the future

The way I see it, with a coach who in his 50s is one of the fittest, if not THE fittest guy on the team, this guy is already whipping himself into shape. If that happens, we can see a vastly improved player who will earn PT.

The roster is much deeper so the writing is on the wall for him. He doesn't have much of a choice. Get in shape or ride the pines.

After crazy debacles with lovett, jordan, obekpa, recruits transferring a couple days after school starts, even transvestite robbers, common sense goes out the window.

The staff really likes his potential, and he lucked into the minutes he wouldn't have gotten.

I'm gonna guess that merely due to the fact he has stuck around he has accepted the challenge of getting into shape. If that happens, could be a lot of fun to watch.

So basically what you’re saying is that if the cards fall in to place(in the backcourt) just perfectly(when was the last time that happened around here?), and/or if Trimble did not get in to better shape over the summer, then he will see reduced minutes. If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on Trimble being a solid contributor this coming year.

I hope you are right. But I think Greg Williams will end up higher on the depth chart than Trimble by season's end. I like him a lot. Has the body and athleticism to be a great defender, will compliment Ponds and Dixon well.

A defensive lineup of Simon, Heron and Greg Williams will give other teams loads of problems

In positionless baskeball he is our combo 3 pt shooter and Backup center! Keita, Clark, Earlington, Heron and Trimble are our 5 biggest guys. I hope we see Trimble for 4 years. He showed a nice stroke early and some poise. I think he may have hit a wall a little physically but I'd like to see him as a Junior/Sr.


Agree with most but would say Simon, LJ, and Roberts would all be asked to guard "bigs" before Trimble. As an 8th or so man we really cant ask for much more tho.

First of all I can't understand why an athlete lets himself get out of shape, especially one with a basketball scholarship and expects to play more then a few minutes a game. Still, I thought Trimble made some changes to his outside game and showed some moves on drives to the basket plus pull up jumpers. I'm rooting for this kid.

You're right I forgot about Roberts even though he is still pretty thin. Simon is too important 1-3 to be guarding bigs and he is pretty thin. LJ looks more finesse than strength to me but we'll see. It's a little bit of hyperbole on my part but there was a game in fact where Trimble was our "big man" on the floor and wasn't pushed around inside.

I like my role players as upperclassmen, ergo my opinion. I also can see Trimble making a meaningful contribution as a jr and sr. Additionally, I prefer to see 8 very good players sharing minutes than 10 ok players doing the same. Looks like there's a chance for the former if, as you say, the cards fall in to place. I understand entirely why we shouldn't expect that but hope springs eternal.
