      as we all know, basketball season is upon us and i was looking at the roster and compiled by projected starting lineup

      G- Rylan Jones
      G- Both Gach
      G/F- Timmy Allen
      F- Riley Battin
      C- Branden Carlson

      Carlson was the number 1 player in Utah in his class. I feel like this team can be pretty solid and string together a pretty solid season. all of these guys were 4 star recruits coming out of high school depending on what source u look at. Hoping for a fun season. Go Utes!

      That’s just it. Utah may not be good basketball, but I think it will be fun basketball. At this point that’s all I’m really about…I just want to be entertained.

        Winning is more fun than losing though.  So there’s that.

      Sheesh! That a young skinny lineup full of underclassman that are going to take a lot of losses. Any seniors? At all? Any Juniors? Calling on any available upper classman!!!! Anyone, anyone?

      I’m sorry but holy s**t , man!

      I expect Alfonso Plummer to start over Rylan. Rylan will get minutes. I expect Lahat Thioune to start over Brandon.

      This is what I expect to see as the game 1 starting lineup:

      G Plummer
      G Gach
      F Allen
      F Battin
      C Thioune

      So I’ve followed Carlson his whole life.  Let me just set some expectations.  The kid is green.  The potential is definatley there and he progressed a ton from his Jr to Sr years.  But he’s still green.  Good kid and will work hard.  But for this year, I expect moments of brightness and a lot of WTH type moments.  But I also see a lot of growth this year and a decent player next.

        My hope is LT is experienced & developed enough to start, or he might be a transfer risk… the absolute last thing we need.  Carlson sounds like he’s going to develop regardless, so hopefully they make a decent 1-2 punch as bigs, growing together.

          My biggest hopes are simply to enjoy time with my parents who don’t have too many years left.


          Very inexperienced team with only one consistent player returning, and 2 others that have shown potential from time to time, so if the team does anything special, it will be an added bonus.
