Big Guard alert!!
Agreed I'd like another ball handler in the mix, but Nolley and Jackson can handle the ball decently well. His shooting and scoring would replace CV. He'd fit great as a fourth guard in Hurley's 4 guard offense.I would think that big guard needs to be a ball handler.
He’d have to sit out a year, no? Wouldn’t call him a CV replacement in that scenario.
Vance Jackson is coming back?We won't replace CV with one particular player. It will be different types and different people playing multiple positions. I mean if there is any way to have minutes in a game where Bouk plays the 2G with Vance somehow ready to play the 3 it's replaced. Bouk can rebound like CV maybe eventually better. Vance seems to be a good defender and can certainly finish on the break but again, we won't know until people get out there an play. I'm still more worried about Gaffney improving enough to be the guy than losing CV. Think we have multiple issues but we could easily have multiple answers also, the unknowns make it difficult to navigate through it now. Adams continued improvement is huge too he made a solid jump from freshman to soph hoping we see the same again from him and of course Gaff.
I think the same thing when eight 5-star guys commit to Kentucky each year, but the reality is the vast majority of talented players want to play with other talented players. It makes them better.UConn is the last place I would transfer to. I would only have to beat out Bouk, Jackson, Adams,
Gaffney and Polley for court time. But I remember when the NY Giants had the best linebacking corps in the NFL and then drafted Carl Banks. So, welcome aboard Mr. Nolley if you'll have us.

Basketball positioning isn't rigid like it used to be anymore. You can have numerous guys with similar skill sets on the court at a time. Nolley can play the 2 through 4, he'll coexist with Polley, Jackson, and Bouk.
