    We are going after 2 guards. I haven’t even seen another big mentioned. I expect the worst from White.

      Yeah, Mitchell is Payne's size but with an actual inside game. Would be an upgrade for sure.
      Oh, and mass transfers out every year are going to be the norm under White.

      Under these rules mass transfers will be common all over.

      Mitchell is the same height but 20 lbs heavier I think.....I thought I read 240 lbs.

        To be fair, the National Champion this past season was extremely guard-oriented. I’m assuming we’ll be going to a 3 guard lineup as well

          it's been awhile since I watched ghettoball but I thought White often played 4 or occasionally even 5 guards?

          Yes many teams go with 3 guards. A PG and 2 wings. 2’s and 3’s are pretty much interchangeable. Some go 4 out....2-up 2-down.

            Yes a lot of teams go with 3 guard line ups, heck Billy D did it all the time at UF. I had read an article about half of the starters in the Final 4 were all transfers so its a HUGE market and recruiting tool now and has been for a number of years now. College Basketball is all about mercenaries.

            The big man in basketball is becoming less and less important unless they can stretch the floor and shoot

                Wow! This is awesome news and deserves it's own thread if he gets cleared. Hoping all the best for this man. We could sure use his talent and leadership on next year's team.

                  This is great news. Now I hope he starts building some rapport with the new guys.
