You also have to consider a player's age when they are coming out of school. It is not uncommon for players to make huge strides in their early-mid 20s - a 4-year guy has already made a lot of those...

Hayden Koval is a Bearcat. They need at least 3 bigs, so this is a start. Blocks a lot of shots, can step out to 3-point range. Doesn't seem to rebound much. Numbers look like a poverty-row Brook...

We definitely need bodies, so this doesn't hurt. Hopefully he is playing 15 minutes a game off the bench, like he did for a solid Clemson team, rather than 31 mpg, like he did for a bad Clemson team.

Tre Mitchell would be a huge get. He could challenge for POY in the conference. IF not, maybe look at some guys who haven't played a lot but have upside, like Tyreek Smith out of Texas Tech?

Woof. That one hurts. They need bodies, but Eason was by far the guy with the highest ceiling among the players who transferred out. Really need a lot of frontcourt players.

Yeah, he likes to pressure the ball after made FG in order to bleed the shot clock and make it hard to run your offense, which will slow the overall pace even if you play fairly quick on offense.

I don't think they are going to win more than 2 or 3 road games in the conference. Maybe UConn, ECU, one more? A .500 conference record is definitely in play.

Ritter is now 21-4 as a starter, plus his first game, when he came in in relief and led the team to victory.
