I suspect a Bearcat win.

Line is UC -1 over/under 200

Diarra is by far the biggest question mark going into the year, definitely want to see how heís developing, the game was too fast for him last year, he looked quicker in midnight madness.

But I still think his decision making and b-ball IQ will always be a problem for him, I hope Iím wrong

Probably not a great thing that the suspected starting lineup does not include Diarra. I was hoping it would.

Heís got a lot to offer but maybe itís not coming together fast enough

I think Diarra will get there, but it might be another year or two. Diarra just hasn't played much organized basketball and there is no fix for that besides time. I'm guessing changing systems will set him back a little as well.

I haven't seen anything official about starting lineups and I think we need Diarra to be a starter. I don't see Vogt or Sorolla as starting material - maybe one of them can prove me wrong - and I still don't think we have enough tough athletic guards to play small (at least not until Moore and maybe Davenport get healthy). Not to mention that I don't think Scott is big enough to play a lot of minutes at center.

I really think Diarra is the key to our success this season. It's probably worth giving him minutes and letting him learn through playing. It may be ugly at first, but hopefully he will figure it out by tournament time.

5 - Guyn averaged 10 MPG. Importantly though, SK and Dixon averaged 34mpg that year...beasts.

Point still true though.

Agreed. We are fine at guard/wing. That is our strength in both starters and bench quality. Bigs are the question and specifically the 5 or the second big after Scott.

We won't go 35 minutes for anyone because of the pace so I don't expect a repeat of 2012. We will use Williams, JC2, Harvey, Moore, etc. Maybe even Davenport or Woods.
