Hypothetical: If Kobe Brown hit the transfer portal, would we want him? 6’8”, hits the 3, and defends and plays inside well. Really inconsistent, but great when he is on.

Yes, definitely.  Brazille is the guy I'd really want, however.

absolutely, he wouldnt have to play out of position like he did at mizzou, he can handle the ball, rebound and can score in the paint. would fill that 4 spot and some minutes at the five

That's English's entire roster of PGs sansd Ronald Polite (who didn't do that well late in the season anyway).  Only point on the roster is 5'10" LOI commit Devoin Dinkins, rated a three-star prospect.  Hard way to win.  Dinkins is a DC kid.

Some others:  Dahmir Bishop (St. Joes): Toby Okania (Duquesne): Antwan Walker (Rhode Island); Malik Martin (Rhode Island).

Kalkbrenner if we are dreaming 

Cade McKnight from Truman would be the most similar to Kalkbrenner in the D2 portal right now. He's a big bodied stretch 5 that was the conference player of the year in 2021 and put up better stats this season, 19ppg/6rpg. He's a grad transfer with a lot of experience that could help cover the hole left by ML.

Kobe Brown and Brazile would be great additions to the Bills. Go for it Corey.

As much as I would love both of these players they would likely transfer to higher profile schools not the A-10.

We've got an attractive situation to sell to a young backup big.  Back up Franco for a year and you'll likely start the next year.

I think the opportunity is better than that. The closest we have to a player who can defend a 4, is Perkins. Who isn't a great defender and is non-committal. We had 6'3" Thatch defending 4s, because our wings struggled. Depending on matchups, a good big would pick up minutes even when Okoro is on the floor.

This is our teams biggest weakness. While we can get away with our small 4's in the A-10 you aren't going to beat the Duke's of the world with 6-3 power forwards. A TJ can't rebound against taller, stronger opponents.  While they don't grow on trees I would sure be trying to work the portal for that guy.

I agree with that.  However, It's really hard to find a big who can score and defend the 4.   Big guys who play big tend to live in the paint.  There's a surplus of 6'6/6'7 wings masquerading as 4 men these days.

We did and it resulted in both bigs being in foul trouble.

There is a very clear tradeoff to playing two bigs: you get worse on offense but better on defense. It is no coincidence that Travis' two best offensive teams at SLU were the two teams that only played one big.

I agree that it would be great if we could find a forward who can defend inside and stretch the floor. But when I look around the NCAA I don't see many examples of those types of guys, especially at schools outside the Power 5.

The flood gates are about to open. Half the teams in the tournament won’t be there in the next 48 hours. In 72 hours, the portal will be chaos (including, unfortunately, probably a few of our guys given Ford’s comments postgame).

That is the way it is likely  to be, and that is the way it is likely to continue being.
