Reaching a new level of boredom, so here are thoughts on next year...


McKinley-obviously in a class by himself, although he has room to get better, particularly 3's and free throw shooting.

Opposite McKinley are Keeshawn, Eli and Dominique which is a great compliment of three different styles and strengths. Keeshawn might have been the second best player on the team last year. This is a huge upgrade at the 2 guard and I see a big reduction in turnovers next year. Maddox could help here too or as a wing but he needs to improve to get minutes.

On the wing, I hope/think D'Shawn will have a great senior season. Whatever ailed him will be gone and his ability to shoot in the low 40's% or better will really help this team. I think Jabari, Dominique and Luke factor in here too, with Luke probably a red-shirt candidate. Luke shot 28% from three his senior year so needs to get better to contribute. Jabari is skinny but he's got a lot of skill and upside, plus I don't think there's pressure for him to come in and be a hero right away.

Down low, Evan, Jeriah, Dallas and Alex. I don't think Alex will get many minutes but that dude is solid when he does. Evan needs to keep getting better too, especially with softer hands around the basket and better free throw shooting. He's a good leader and can get these guys going. Dallas hopefully will be 100% healthy and resume the upward trajectory he started his red-shirt freshman year. His attitude is impressive and a great example. That leave Jeriah, who I hope will buck the trend of grad transfers regressing at their new school. The video clips show he can drive and he can shoot. 34% from three isn't great but 86% at the line is. His fundamentals in terms of shooting are very good. I think he and D'Shawn will be solid and take the scoring load off of McKinley's shoulders.

TB has one more scholarship to give and I'm predicting he gives it to a transfer who will have to sit a year. I listed 12 players above which obviously will be reduced to a rotation of 10 or less, so no need to get help for the upcoming year.

Here is a link to the funniest, imo, COVID-19 clip, which I'm prejudiced toward because I'm a lab nut, it's worth watching.
