I have said Roscoe is going to be big for us again this year, and is better suited at the 4 spot for this team than Oriakhi. I do root for Roscoe and I think he should be starting at the 4 spot. Boatright is the most talented person on this team overall, and I am expecting a big game from him again today. Unleash the Drummond for today to wreak havoc on the Arkansas front line.
Calhoun mentioned how Boatright was going up against Ray Allen at Gampel the other day.
“He was saying ‘Ray, I got ya.’ (He was) going into Ray Allen. Not many guys can do that with Ray. They were kidding back and forth, but the point being: all he’s been doing through this whole process is, ‘Coach, get me on the floor.’ He never said a word about starting – obviously, I wouldn’t have listened to him anyway – but still, a lot of kids come back and say things.”
