Good post. Nice analysis TMT. Here's what I most hope for:


CU really needs for Lovering to be more than capable and reliable as a freshman. Not a star yet but a scorer, rebounder and decent rim protected, say 10+ points, 6 rebounds and a block per game. Decent.

Battey could lose some weight, improve his body, work on the range and accuracy of his shot. Thinking 10-14 pts, 6 rebounds and better defense.

Walker works on his mental approach, becomes more focused and tougher minded, improves his consistency and takes off, averaging 14-16 points and 6-8 rebounds while playing some defense.

KB disappointed this season if you ask me but looked much better at the end. He has a long ways to go but the makings of a decent three-point shot. Improve his body, learn from the mindset, leadership, commitment and competitiveness of Kin and become a trustworthy leader. Average 8-10 points, 4-6 assists, be serviceable at least on D and good 3-point shooter.

I think Parquet should be a quality backup but I expect him to start for his defense and experience unless Clifford, Allen or O'Brien has an amazing summer of improvement. If EP can make his defense even better, continue to be a decent shooter and show leadership, great. I want to see him rebound too to bring more value.

Next:

Clifford and DaSilva have potential yet look so far away from being helpful. They, like O'Brien need to work like crazy in the offseason to create some magic and reliability in their games.

Ruffin and Hammond are intriguing but I suspect they will struggle to make much a contribution as freshmen.
