As near as I can tell (according to sports reference) Huggins had 1 team that had 5 players in double digits (2004-2005) and 3 of those were between 10.2 and 10.4. Kenyon's So year he was at 9.9 which was 5th on the team and we had 4 guys over 13.4 that year. Most other years we would have 3 or so above 10 ppg although we also had some guys hitting 15 plus in many years.

So we haven't had 5 players over 10.3 ppg in the last 25 years or so. To be clear, I am not comparing this team in terms of how great they will be to other teams in the past, just in terms of how versatile we are 1-5. We may or may not have an All American on this squad...but we are just SOOO solid.

I predict we will have 5 guys over 10.3 this year making us one of the most well rounded teams in a quarter century at UC. Depth is also solid. Experience is also there as Chad eluded to we are one of the older teams in CBB in terms of probable starters.

Have the stars aligned for a deep run? Man I hope so!!

We will probably have a 5th yr SR, 4th yr SR, 4th yr Jr, 3rd yr Jr, and a 2nd yr So in the starting lineup. Experience and confidence should be there considering our 2nd and 3rd year guys are beyond their years already.
