In terms of roster spots and class balancing, we're pretty close to where we would have been before the exodus and coaching change.

Vogt > Koval (senior)
Diarra > Newman (junior)
Harvey > Banks (sophomore)
Eason > Hensley (freshman)

Now we're looking to fill the spots opened by Keith, Gabe, and Rap. And although it wouldn't be fair to Banks, I think we might pull his scholarship if we needed that spot in 2023 or 2024, especially if he's already graduated by then.

I probably didn’t word that right. I place a higher value on retaining him now since we are still short on play makers at this point. I don’t know who we will put the ball in their hands late clock if we lose him

I would take the McGinnis addition as all but confirmation that DDJ is gone.

How are you going to split up 80 minutes/game between these players when two should only be on the floor at the same time?

DDJ (30 mpg last season)
Saunders (16 mpg last season)
MAW (30 mpg last season)
Madsen (20 mpg last season)
McGinnis (15 mpg last season)

That's 111 mpg.

Wouldn’t Newman and Davenport be starting wings?

The more this roster is built out - the more I think Davenport needs to be at the 4 for most of his minutes.

Ideally.

At this point though, it's looking like Newman will be the starting 3 and Davenport the 4.

Need to land a significant frontcourt talent at this point to change that.

I don't think we have a starting 5 or guys that are for sure locks to start this upcoming season.

Which I think is great!

There will be competition at almost every position, which sets up a solid team potentially for the season.

We have a new coach, so we can keep putting out hypothetical starting lineups, but from what he's bringing in....May the best men start.

Every players offseason will be critical to their future and playing time, or we may see some Brannen recruits in the portal next season.

We haven't seen the transfers play, but all 4 could be starters at UC. Let see how it plays out.

I Love it!

I don't know what to think anymore.

PG: DeJulius 20 / Saunders 20
SG: MAW 25 / McGinnis 15
SF: Newman 25 / Mason 15
PF: Davenport 25 / Hensley 10 / Transfer1 5
C: Koval 20 / Transfer1 10 / Lakhin 10

Transfer 1: defensive/rebounding big

McGinnis can take the role of scoring wing I wanted, just in different form. I was hoping for an experienced taller SF who can slash. Maybe a young small SF who can splash will work.
