Here’s what I realistically think the starting 5 will look like...

1) Davonta Jordan

2) Antwain Johnson

3) Jayvon Graves

4) David Nickleberry

5) LaQuill Hardnett

 Bench - 6th man would be Jeenathan Williams then Segu then Skogman/Brock.

Thoughts? I’ll hang up and listen. 

 

 

 

 

 

Isn't Graves more of a 2? I think williams starts at the 3  and skogman/hadrnett at the 5 but who knows. I think we have a good roster!

I think Jeenathan starts this year and dominates. Would imagine Nickelberry gets a lot of minutes off the bench though

I think we will see a 9 man rotation again consisting of the following players in tight games. 

PG) Davonta Jordan/Ronaldo Segu
SG) Jayvon Graves/Antwain Johnson
W) Jeenathan Williams/Gabe Grant
F) David Nickelberry
F) LaQuill Hardnett/David Skogman

This is assuming Mballa is sitting out and Fagan is on the IR for the year. If one of them plays I could see the rotation stretching to 10 players.

Nickleberry's spot is rock solid in the lineup. 

Williams will have to push Hardnett to the bench, which I dont see. 
 

I think he's the team's 6 man this year.

1st 3 seem like pretty close to locks. I'm not sure who I'd pick next, between Jeenathan, Nickelberry, Hardnett, Grant, (Mballa if eligible). I don't know those guys well enough to pick. It's as deep of a team as last year, it would seem, without saying it's as good as last year, as they will have to get used to playing with/for each other. It's crazy that I mentioned 10 guys, none of who is Segu, but he doesn't start in front of those 3 listed at guard, but I'd wager he gets a good deal of time on the floor.

I think Jordan, Johnson, and Graves are pretty locked into starting in the backcourt.

I think Nickelberry gets the 4 spot but maybe Hardnett pushes him. The 5 is the tricky spot.

At the 5 I feel like Mballa is the most physically ready but if he has to sit I'd think Skogman starts. While Bertram isn't anything exciting I don't see how he doesn't get some minutes at the 5 if for nothing else to eat fouls. Hardnett isn't strong enough to deal with true posts and it's tbd how Skogman does there.

Here's how I picture rotational depth charts. Gallion doesn't have a clear path to mins and neither does Fagan regardless of the injury situation. Bertram is probably out of the rotation if Mballa is eligible which puts us at 10. Deeper in season I see Williams getting potentially buried with a redundant skill set to Nickelberry and Hardnett while Grant gets spot mins providing shooting none of the others have.

Primary Ballhandlers: Jordan*, Segu

Secondary Ballhandlers: Graves*, Johnson*

Wings: Nickelberry*, Hardnett, Grant, Williams

Forwards: Mballa* (?), Skogman, Bertram

It'll be interesting to see how it pans out but I like our odds for the 3-peat.

Fagan torn ACL

very sad. Loved his energy while on the bench cheering for the team and thought we could maybe see a leap of improvement from him. I wonder if he can get a medical redshirt.

Bummer for Fagan. I suspect no problem for medical redshirt.

I know he wasn’t a huge name, but he was really productive as a JUCO freshman. For perspective, numbers not dissimilar to JUCO freshman Justin Moss.

Assuming he recovers we are still set for some time to come with athletic, skilled and mobile bigs (Skogman, Mballa, Fagan, Hardnett... wow!).

He had surgery on it 3 weeks ago. Not sure which procedure as the two main procedures have wildly different recovery times but nonetheless it’s sad to see

Jordan, Johnson and Graves def. a lock like everyone said. I think at the 4 Nickleberry gets the nod. 5 spot is tricky, against a smaller lineup Hardnett might get start there but bigger lineup probably Skogman. We are a little thin at the 5 spot in my opinion until we get Mballa. When we match up against bigger teams were gonna be a bit undersized and Bertram is likely to get some bench minutes way we look right now. 

Solid bench also w Williams, Segu, Grant and Hardnett/Skogman. I think Gallion might get some bench minutes too atleast early on. 

This team will definitely have legit shot at 3 peat this year.
