It's hard to predict the lineup right now, so many players and a lot of players who can play multiple positions. My best guess.

PG: Mikey/MAW/Mason
SG: DDJ/MAW/Newman
SF: Newman/Mason/McGinnis/Banks
PF: Davenport/Hensley/Ody/Banks
C: Ado/Koval/Ody

Really think Ody is going to be a significant part. I would carve him out 15 minutes somehow unless Hensley has made a big leap which is possible and reports are looking good.

I don't know how we keep all these guys happy. I would think it would be easiest to keep Hensley, McGinnis, Lakhin and Banks with the least minutes but if any of them start producing (especially on the offensive end)...Wes has some decisions to make.

I don't see any returning veteran of our team being happy with spot minutes and it would be a shame for Ado, Ody, or Koval to ride pine after transferring and also being veterans used to playing. Obviously Ado and Koval are gone after this year so it might be possible for Wes to sell next year to guys like Ody and Lakhin.

Bold Prediction - Davenport! Jeremiah is already a leader and the heart and sol of this team. Yet, I expect his performance carrying this team will translate to broader recognition. Definite 1st team all-conference with All-American chatter resulting in 3rd team all-American. When the best player gets better, the team wins more games. JD will score over 20 ppg, grab more than 10 rebounds per game, and distribute the ball efficiently. The offense will run through JD and coach Wes should be upset if he doesn't touch the ball on every possession, unless there is a clear dunk without passing out to JD.

Most improved and most surprising Viktor Lahkin will be a starter and second leading scorer on the 21/22 Bearcats. We didn't see him due to injury and he was last man on campus for this year, but some were saying he was the best shooter in practice at the end of the year. He is agile for a big man. I just hope Wes' schemes help him on defense. He is a true 4 and shouldn't be expected to guard the opposing team's center, but will likely get the task.

Most surprising newcomer Another big man, Abdul Ado. By game7, he will be the starter over Koval, providing a defensing force and shot-blocking ability not seen in Clifton in a long time. Ado will alter lay-ups, shots down low, and even mid range shots (wouldn't you hate to see him stepping out at you with arms fully extended?). On offense, the outside shooting will open things up enough for him to get some easy monster jams, and score 13-15 ppg

JD is already the top player on this team

I don't see two other players making it close enough to say top 3.

Viktor may end up being drafted higher than JD, JD is best player on the 21/22 team. I hope Viktor proves me wrong and JD continues to play at high level because it will make Wes' job much easier.

Davenport is 3rd or 4th best player on top 15 team. No way he's any of top 25 best player. We got stop setting bar so low and raise it higher. No diss to JD at all but if he's out best player were not making tournament. I've heard NOBODY over this summer mention how JD is looking like legit NBA prospect. DDJ, Newman, MAW and Ody/Ado been players whose name you've heard mentioned this summer.
