I never thought I'd say this in October, but is it basketball season yet? Hopefully some people have been noticing JJ doing some quick recruiting to secure 2 players for next year, a pretty important thing considering we only have 8 scholarship players this year.
I know we've lost DFS and Hudson, but Hudson was the only really big contributor last year. I know DFS has a lot of potential, but he was obviously raw and won't be great until his junior or senior year. So for this years team I'm fully expecting a middle of the road ACC team, something around 7-9 in conference play. I know it seems like a reach but Green is a great guard, one of the best in the league and can definitely carry us. Raines showed me last year that he's got all the post moves needed to succeed in ACC basketball. Eddie is only going to get better and his ability to cover 4 positions can't be understated. After that though our scoring is going to be a struggle, again. Brown didn't impress me at all last year and Barksdale needs to put on a little muscle in order to be useful. I thought Rankin was pretty good last year when he was healthy, but as a Sophomore I don't know how much we can really trust him. What's everyone else think of this team?
