Hard not to be very excited.

Mustafa, welcome!


We already had the best rebounding back court in the country. Figueroa + Williams will be pluses there as well. Dixon, who I think becomes the true wildcard if Heron is cleared, is bigger than Ponds and Lovett.

Sort of like having the tallest dwarfs? Hottest ugly girls?
Sort of kidding. Looking forward to next year especially if Herron eligible. Guards are going to have to rebound considering the one forward that is going to start doesn't rebound. Still against some team this will be a problem.

Just goes to show you while we get impatient with our recruiting efforts the staff is patiently picking up studs such as Heron. I have to say,"Great job Matt." And welcome Mustafa.

Id say were the richest of the poor.

Forgetting what theyll play on offense i think LJ, Heron, and Simon all are SF size and strength without a doubt.

Clark is going to have to rebound defensively. If not grab boards at least box out so that wings and guards can get there.
Again hope they start Clark, Figueroa, Simon, Heron (fingers crossed) and Ponds. But rebounding will be an issue.

Agree completely with both these posts. Think we will rebound we’ll enough in these positions to not be at a big disadvantage rebounding.

Beast, what the rebounding stats show is that these players play bigger than their listed heights which, with their speed, may translate into a very exiting run DMC type of game.

Do you realize we could get 18 rebounds per game on average from our starting GUARDS? IF the starters average 30, we can actually be a pretty damned good rebounding team that runs all night
