  1. His role on the team. I would say if he continues to be the primary ball handler running the offense, his rebound numbers certainly are capped in averages. Talked about it in the preview article, but if he gets to a 2 guard role he has a good chance at increasing his rebound production because he can focus on it.
  2. I wonder what Weaver's role will end up being. I thought Dion Wiley immediately, a bench player who can have some above average scoring games sporadically off the bench.
  3. Actually responding to this post however, my thinking with Thatch is that he will always be the 4th, maybe 5th best scorer on the floor, at least based off of what we saw last year. I expect that unless Fred is wide open, or is driving to the basket, he probably won't score a ton when there are more reliable and important scoring options on the floor. I gave him less points per game average because I like Travis' recruiting class and I don't see Thatch looking to score as much this year, opting instead to focus primarily on his defense allowing his scoring averages to drop. He can very easily prove me wrong too. Hankton showed an ability to shoot the three last year, and more importantly a willingness to pull the trigger. It's not unbelievable that he could put up even 6.0 ppg because he comes in and knocks down two quick 3s. Put it this way, I am looking for him to put in a 3 a game this year, which shouldn't be a tall order. The points relationship to Bell more comes from me not knowing what Ford is planning to run in the offense. Maybe there is a two big lineup and Bell gets solid minutes. Maybe Bell just suppliments French for breaks here and there. I think the second option is most likely to me, meaning that Jimmy wouldn't have a ton of oppurtunities to score, but again he could prove me wrong. Not unbelievable that he would put a bucket or two a game in and average 4 or maybe 6 ppg. Jimerson was another player who suffered from my lack of feel for what Ford is going to do. My feeling is that Jimerson could look the same as Hankton, one or two 3s a game type of guy, but he won't play as much as Weaver or Yuri. More minutes for each of them made it seem like common sense that they would probably score more on average, given that as @Pistol pointed out in the blog Weaver has a quick trigger and confidence in his shot, and Yuri has shown an ability to score in high school but who's to say how that translates. Weaver is the one who I could be hugely wrong on here. Lastly, no I don't have minutes projections. I looked at some stats, looked at some videos, and based off of what we know about the returners, I made an educated guess on primary stats such as points, rebounds, and assists. It's a rough idea of what I think this year will look like for SLU.

  5. Write a blog or undervalue Thatch? Odds are I do both in the future.
  6. I did think I made that clear. Maybe not. Apologies if this was misunderstood.
  7. Hard to say what Thatch will do this year. He's super atheltic, can hit an open jump shot, but his game obviously needs some work. With guys like Jimerson, Weaver, and Perkins coming in, do we really even need that much in production from Thatch? At least points wise.
  8. Did not realize anyone was paying attention. Had written the article with @Pistol a little while back, and was still waiting on some contributions for it so we hadn't posted it here. That being said, the numbers projections coming from my point of view was what those guys could potentially do. Reasonable expectations. I didn't think that hard on it but probably looking at whether the numbers add up makes more sense for future reference. Hope you guys enjoy the read, I will try to keep working on more of these as I can. - Collin
