Is it too early to project a starting five?

Center – Ndumanya

PG – Feagin

SG – Hauser

Swing – Caruso

Maybe Pugh … does anybody else scream that they belong in the starting five?

Best freshman – Walters

Best Newcomer – Caruso

We need the freshman to play and be very effective.

 

What about a small lineup…. Feagin/Hauser/Frosh G/Caruso/Pugh.

My prospective starting five would be the same as Cadmus. I think that guard is probably the easiest spot for a frosh to make a big impact, so I’ll take Turner as the top freshman, though I think Roche and Vrankic are the most critical new faces for long term success. If Roche isn’t at least passable, the year after this one will be tough.

Agree on Ndumanya/Pugh/Caruso/Hauser/Feagin

Turner for top Frosh.
But don’t sleep on Vrankic, kid is pretty skilled, can score inside and out and IMO is the only true ‘4’ on the roster so he has a chance to get some PT behind Pugh. My only question on Vrankic is strength/weight…might get out muscled a bit this year, hopefully he can add strength and put on a little weight by Soph yr.

Agree with PMac and ’92 re: the starters and also am encouraged by Vrankic’s upside. In the one game I saw him in, he was skilled and fearless against some elite talent. He needed more strength to finish at the rim. He sees the floor and passes really well. Like PMac, I’m really curious about Roche as well. Has anyone seen him play?

Perhaps Vrankic is bulking up this summer? We’ll need his skills in the lineup if we hope to prevent our opponents from just extending their defense to swarm our guards. Vrankic could keep them honest.

I think Matt turner is going to start over hauser.

Maybe, but Sendek seems to like and trust Hauser so I’d be surprised if he didn’t start.
Turner does offer a little more length and athleticism; if he shots lights out he could cut in to Hauser’s minutes or even Caruso minutes at the 3.
I can definitely see Turner starting in 18/19 in a 3 guard lineup.

I’m looking forward to this season. I hope and pray that kj feagin is 100% healthy cause he is definitely the leader on this team.

I think it’s gotta be hauser, feagin, Caruso, Pugh, ndumanya. At least until turner/Walters/Roche show us something. The more I look at it, the more I love our balance of positions, experiences, attributes. Maybe it’s just the doldrums of summer but I’m really excited to see these guys play.

Best freshman I’ll say turner because I think there’s more of a log jam in front of Roche/vrankic and Walters might be a bit raw. Turner could be the first off the bench for us.
