You take Ray/Kemba/Shabazz and this team instantly becomes a national championship favorite.
If I had to pick a non-super star to add to the team, I would have to go with someone like Niels Giffey. Perimeter shooting would really make this team amazing.
I love Giffey and he will always be a fan favorite because of his role on 2 national championship teams (and because he seemed like a guy who was all about the team) but his role as a sniper is wildly overrated in my estimation.
Did he make a single three off the dribble or running off a screen in his UConn career? It seemed like every three he made was a wide open, feet planted, set shot.
Just wait. Too early to say for sure what we have. We tend to get taken by surprise sometimes. Neither Kemba or Lamb was anywhere near the level they turned out to be going into 2010-11.this question just made me realize how much better the 2011 team was than this one, and it wasn't even ranked in the preseason. two imminent nba draft picks in kemba and lamb, another pro in giffey. a former all american recruit in alex O. this year's team has a quantity of good players but not the quality.
If you have a chance to add the 11th-best shooting guard UConn has had in the last 30 years, you have to do it.Going way back here but a pure 3point threat I would say Brian Fair.
