Ummmm you know I have agreed with some of your criticism of Cronin, but not this. Itís a lot of new players in new roles. And I donít see any glaring problem in that quote.

"Tonight we got beat by a veteran team that had tremendous offensive execution," UC head coach Mick Cronin said. "The fact that we hadn't worked on defense this summer really showed tonight. I'm still very disappointed with our veteran players and their defensive effort.

Were they working on offense? Shot 25-64 (39%) that night, 3-11 from 3

Also see Rothstein tweet, they were stopping practice when an easy layup was given up when he visited a week ago

Yeah I get it somewhat though. Been stuck for a while now. And no real changes that we've seen. Falling short in Troy's senior year and Gary's senior year was tough and has me seriously concerned as well. But not about every little detail in the preseason.

With limited practice and a lot of new pieces in the puzzle I don't worry too much about the Carleton game. I won't be worried about defense either.

I do worry about whether or not we will play enough small ball or if Cronin will be willing to put the players on the floor that help us most regardless of their seniority. If we need Logan Johnson on the floor or Ellie...we need to let them play even if some feelings get hurt.

Comparing Logan Johnsonís minutes to that of hardnettís, I think for sure Logan will get plenty of work this season.

Cronin needs him to be through some wars if he plans on him being a 3 year starter starting next year.

Justin Jenifer Is capped on what he can be. I think Logan will eat into his minutes. But make no mistake, cane has to be aggressive too. Itís his last year and we really need him to show what we all know he is capable of.

I would imagine Broome can/will be used at the 1 or the 2. Logan will probably be limited to playing PG with all the options we have on the wing. With Jenifer being a senior and Broome factoring in...Johnson is going to have to out perform someone significantly to get in there for 10+ minutes. You gotta figure Jenifer will see 15+ minutes either way and Broome will run the point for at least 5 minutes here and there.

Generally most freshman only learn one position any way.

But I think a lineup of Logan, Cumberland,Moore/Williams, Fredericks & Scott would be pretty good.
