        European ballers are just different.

        Yup…we have 3 guards/sf coming with size, athleticism, and the capability to shoot well.

        Even if a bunch of bench players transfer again, we are going to be better next year.

        Right now Larry is only over by 1 scholarship so it seems the mostly likely to go is Wenzel.

        If you’re not good enough to get minutes on this team and you need to redshirt you’re probably not ready for this level to begin with.

        I’m wondering if Matt Van Komen will stay, or why he would. I was real intrigued by his signing with Utah, but if he won’t redshirt and LK won’t play him, what’s the point?

          Let’s face it. Currently he has no athleticism at all. He’s an accountant in a 7’4” body

        Given the incoming 2020 guys, we sure will have a lot of shooting guards. Martinez also seems to be able to play PG. Not sure if Lohner can be SF. Guess we’ll see.

          The way the college game is today there are times when we could get away with playing battin or Allen at the 5. A lineup of Jones, Gach, Martinez, lohner, and Battin/Allen would be interesting.

          if everyone stays (not going to happen, too many guys that deserve minutes). The lineup will likely be jones, Gach, Lohner, Battin, Carlson… with Martinez, and jantunnen being the first two off the bench.

          while I don’t buy the idea that Gach is unhappy, or in the doghouse, he is a transfer possibility. he and/or brenchley will be transferring for sure. Lahat and/or MVK will almost certainly transfer as well.

          if we somehow manage to only lose mvk and brenchley we will have the most complete team we’ve had in a long long time.

          true PG: check

          pure shooter: check

          slasher: check

          post scorer: check

          dribble penetration: check

          Rim protector: check

          scrappy rebounder: check

          stretch 4: check

          veteran leader: check

          Bench scoring: check

          bench rim protector: check

        You forgot Allen in your likely lineup. I do see your point. It is hard finding playing time for 10 players. Allen, Jones, Carlson, Martinez, Lohner
        With Jantunen, Battin, Gach, Brenchley, and Thiune off the bench would be pretty formidable.
