I think this is spot on. Cumberland is obviously going to be locked in and I think Cronin is going to trust Scott to be doing the right things out there more than he trusts the others.

Many fans expect Cronin to put Brooks and Jenifer out there for the first game but it was good to see some mixed lineups in Canada. Ellie got a start and we started at least one game without Jenifer which were both positives for me.

I expect a lot of different lineups with Cumberland and Scott looking to be in the clear. There are just so many different looks we can throw out there to find what works best.

I think we can try about 4 different PG scenarios. Jenifer, Broome, Johnson, or Cumberland. We can try 3 different scenarios at C with Brooks, Ellie, or Scott. The rest of the starting spots will depend on who is running point and who is in at the 5.

There are a lot of different deviations to try. Some will depend on matchups and some will depend on what works best for scoring or which players are doing what the coach is asking.

It seems like Tre will be the quarterback of the defense, but overall it's Jarron's team. Obviously our offense is going to suffer, but I do think we could end up with 4 double-digit or close scorers with Cumberland, Broome, Fredericks, and Williams.

Maybe this is the year that bucks the trend but Cronin is not known for changing lineups. He had two lineups last year, one was for 2 total games, the other for 31 games. Cronin has the knack for starting vets, program guys and then subbing in after the first TVTO in the game. The guys that start against OSU will be the starters the majority of the year barring injury etc IMO. There was only one game last year where the starting lineup did not start the 2H and that is when Cumberland I believe got injured and instead of starting Broome in the second half, he put in Moore to start.

Last year we had 4 guys who were clearly better than the bench. This year there won’t be as big of a drop off to the next man in. The only gripe I had last year was Broome. The rest of the starters were legit.

I will take a quick stab at scoring (give or take 2 points either way).

Cumberland...14
Broome...12
Williams...9
Scott...8
Fredericks...7
Jenifer...4
Moore...4
Ellie...4
Brooks...4
Diara...3
Johnson...3
Hardnett...0

That's 72 ppg.
