  • I think the key is that one of the new freshman guards become a competent PG early in the season. Need someone to spell Burton, and if they are good enough to take over at the point, so much the better.

    You’ve got to think that Stevenson is going to see minutes at the 2 as long as he can shoot. He plays the game the right way and that will always earn time at WSU. I have no doubt that one of the freshman will be a very good SG this year.

      I think that the ball screen offense will definitely be one of the looks we use next year because of our personnel. The ball screen offense requires outside shot makers from 4 players, and guards who can pass and also drive the ball to the basket if that option opens up.

      We will also run some of Marshall's other things too. The luxury is that we have several high IQ guys who have leadership skills, and it appears that Grant fits into that category too. It will be interesting to see how GM utilizes our guard personnel.

      • There is also no reason we can't run out a 4 guard lineup with Dexter at the 4 when Teddy needs a break. He's shown he can guard 4s on multiple teams. Something like Burton, Etienne/Sherfield, Stevenson, Dennis, Ech.

        • Grant did an interview with KWCH last night.

            Seems like he wants to play point guard...

        • JB is one of those guys that can play the 1 on offense and guard the 3 on defense when DD is guarding the 1 or 2 if needed. Very valuable to have.

            He needs to work on his shot though. Can't have a PG that can't shoot and allow the defense to keep sagging off like this year.

        • Going from 0 outside shot makers t o four outside shot makers, ESPN will Rush i n with a full crew to cover the story.

          Could we some 4 out 1 in style play?

            I've seen any number of ESPN boxes this year, and from fellow high major teams, that listed one big and four guards as starters.

            • Funny how a program that doesn't get a coveted athlete suddenly downgrades the kid's potential when said athlete chooses another school. I saw this piece yesterday from the Twin Cities website regarding Minnesota missing out on Grant.

              https://www.twincities.com/2019/04/1...wichita-state/

              The bit that gets me chuckling is: "The Gophers men’s basketball team missed out Tuesday on recruiting target Grant Sherfield for its 2019 class. The 6-foot-2, three-star point guard from Wichita, Kan., picked Wichita State."

              I did not change his ranking, just bolded it to make it stand out. LMAO.

              I'm sure with a little searching there was probably an earlier article that boasted Minnesota was in the running for the 6-foot-2, FOUR-STAR point guard from Wichita!

              • I don't like short guards. Hopefully Sherfield doesn't suffer from the same case of height inflation that Stevenson did. Stevenson was listed as 6'3 (still is) and he's lucky to be 6'1.5" in shoes. If this guy is listed at 6'2"... :/

                We now have a ton of guards well under 6'3".

                Just like Marshall saying you're down 7 on the road; a guard in a top 40 program that's under 6'3" is at a significant disadvantage right out of the gate. Most will have to alter their shot moving from high school to college. Ask Frankamp how well the transition worked out for him.

                  Thankfully it is not an absolute and 3G doesn't approach it as such.

                  You should put some stock in your obsession though. I've had girlfriends who clung less that had restraining orders put on.

                  Ragland and Clevin would have troubles in the AAC.

                  I don't mind one tiny player if he's a PG like FVV. Shooting guards - absolutely not. We now have 3 small guards. Are they all going to be PG's?

                  I will say that I'm happy to have an excess of PG options instead of the alternative. I'm fine with Dennis getting 35 mins. per game at the 2. A couple of our PG hopefuls aren't going to be happy with their playing time. Not my problem.

              • I can see where Cold is coming from, but at the same time, we had PG Shamet at 6'5" and he wasn't exactly setting the world on fire with his defense. He also played out of position here. Imagine if we would've had a really quick 6 foot PG that could drive and dish to him on the wing.

                  Shamet's defense was horrific but his shot was outstanding (And it was flat!). Shamet at 6'2" isn't in the NBA right now...

                  P.S. If the NBA required actual defense Shamet isn't in the NBA right now.

                  Cold have you watched the Clippers playoff games this season? Doc and Ballmer don't appear to share your opinion.

                  P.S. I don't watch the NBA.
