i say inside defense with all that length it will be impossible to score what do you think.
I agree.....when we go against top flight competition the inside talent should be a force and there is at least 10 fouls on the bench to help out in BE slugfests. Inside scoring won't be as impacted in big games............Against lesser competition we will dominate........Gates will be interesting for usDefense will be the deciding factor, but that was solid last year. This year i think the low-post will be huge. We go from a weak frontcourt to a talented and deep frontcourt once AD comitted.
I was torn between post scoring and post defense. However, I think our post defense was decent last year while we didn't have a whole lot of post scoring outside of putbacks. Also, an improved post offense could cause defenses to sag thus helping out the 3-point shooting as well.i say inside defense with all that length it will be impossible to score what do you think.
I am going to homer out here for a minute- and as you know I am a "DOOMD" fan first and not prone to pumping up expectations.
AD might have a Sullinger type year. I watched the film on him and compared it to some of the other 5 star bigs coming to college this year and there is simply no contest. IF his head matches his skills and IF he plays every play at 100% effort he could be a monster. Someone like Sullinger (there are not many if any other players like him) will have a good opportunity to get him in foul trouble- but the AO/AD combo could be the best in the country-that right- the best front court in the country. It's possible but certainly not a given- heck nothing is a given with this team outside AO being very steady, RS's D and J Lamb improving.
