    Default Next year starters...

    This might be a little early but with the news that brandon ashley is 99% returning i couldn't resist imagining.
    1. Tj mcconnell
    2. Nick Johnson( i think will return)
    3. Stanley Johnson/ Rondae jefferson
    4. Brandon Ashley
    5. Kaleb T.



    Next years team can be a little deeper and more difficult to handle offensively with so many weapons. Althogh its way to early
    maybe I'm thing about next year due to the recent frustrations.

    If Nick and Brandon both come back, the team's depth will be ridiculous.

    Next years team w/ all those guys plus the added depth of the freshmen & returnees would be sic. Bash being hurt is a huge blow in the short term but it is comforting to know we'll get him for another year plus some of the other guys maybe sticking around a little longer. It's tough, they're still really good, but also kinda frustrating & certainly in need of continued development. Even Aaron, guys a freak & I'll be stoked for him to get paid but his game is far from a finished product.

    If all those guys return, that's insane.

    And, just to light this thread up, how in the hell did you put Stanley in front of Rondae after what we just witnessed from the kid?

    A sophomore Rondae is backing up no one.

    Esq, I was thinking the same thing...no way will Rhondae allow a freshman to start over him.

    Glad we're thinking alike, please take the H out of the kids name you're praising.

    Could happen. More than likely Avi's premonition about Rondae becomes a reality, and the idea of him returning is nothing more than false hope

    If AG keeps playing like he has been you can pencil him into our starting lineup next year.

    Who knows with Rondae now starting if he makes the most of this opportunity and plays solid ball for the next 8 weeks maybe he goes to the NBA instead of coming back? He is certainly of to a solid start

    Why do that when he can go get paid and develop his shot in the NBA?

    It doesn't matter who starts at SF...both Rondae and Stanley will get plenty of minutes. Their games are very different, so I think they will compliment each other & play together for 10 MPG.

    Yeah, this all based on Rondae coming back.

    I think it's a little early for this thread. We still have this years team to support. 1 or 2 days after our season is over I'm all for looking at next years squad, but for now lets focus on this years guys not who is here next year. Don't get me wrong I'm excited what next year can bring, but I still have high hopes for this season.

    Way too much in flux to prognosticate, but there is a lot of interesting movement going on. With Brandon out, he's back for next year. And with the lack of depth and the whole in the line-up, we'll get the below:

    +Rondae stepping into the starting lineup, getting the chance to play his way into the first round of the draft this year. Between the "stepping up for the title contender" story, his natural abilities, his intangibles, and a stream of double doubles - its possible.

    +Nick playing more point to spell TJ in times of foul trouble, injury, or fatigue - with the possibility that he shows more PG skills and plays his way into a solid draft position.

    +Gabe getting the minutes that he's been after and playing himself out of any summer transfer rumors.

    +Pitts getting playing time, stepping up, and starting the Gabe transfer rumors all over again.

    +AG getting more attention on the offensive end and playing....?


    So much drama in the TUC.

    With open arms!
    His is so valuable in every aspect other than shooting right now and I think it may be a weakness it will get better.

    "If Gordon plays like he has, do we want him back?"

    Wow, this team is 22-1 now and some fans are already giving up on this season? The whining and defeatist attitude is silly! You're starting to sound like a bunch of Eeyores! I guess you think they should roll up McKales floor, turn out the lights and lock the doors. Talk about being self-centered - this team is not here to fulfill our every fan wish. I've read all the advice and solutions on here - and my head hurts. These guys are working hard, are suffering from losing Brandon and are banged up now. Conference play is no joke, and each game is brutal. Do we have to be so dang negative?

    The team that got 21-0 season is no more, we're playing playing with a different team. you can see last night guys were sometimes lost and they weren't rebounding the way they were. This is a new team, of coarse with that said we don't know how good this team can be.

    I think it really depends on when Brandon Ashley comes back. Is he going to be back in time for next season? The answer is none of us know. We could end up chasing somebody during the annual Grad Transfer Sweepstakes. Although I would be alright with a TJ, NJ, SJ, RHJ (until Ashley returns) and Zeus starting lineup. I'm trying to think about next season since we still got basketball left here in Tucson.
