Awesome! I've said it many times but this team needs the same dedication Hulls, Oladipo, and Sheehey had in 2011. They were sick and tired of losing. 

Don't forget Watford, he was a cornerstone on those teams and got to be one of the best shooters in the nation before he graduated.

The Peegs Hoosier Hysteria podcast had a really, really good interview with Watford earlier this week btw, for anyone else that bought a #2 jersey during the Watford era like I did lol

Best case scenario is Brunk, Watford and Quinones IMO

3 possible starters. That’s the kind of drastic change I could get behind.

We won’t get these guys. Just won’t happen. Not enough PT to sell imo.

Watford and TJD would get starter minutes.

Phinesee/Durham
Green/Franklin
Watford/Hunter
TJD/Race
Davis/Brunk

That team should win basketball games. Still lacks shooting.

Yeah that would for sure be a huge talent infusion and Watford would be as good as it gets as far as an insurance policy of sorts for Hunter's role. And Christian is my favorite player of the last 20 years so I'd love to see his brother go here.

I think we could swing it but it's definitely unlikely. Everything would need to break our way.

I'm really not that concerned about shooting. I don't think we'll be elite but we'll be way better than we were this year. Romeo and Morgan both shot under 30% from three but combined for over 200 attempts from three. Those shots will mostly go to Green, Phinisee, and Durham next season which will help a ton along with any marginal improvement we might see from them. Our roster would look really nice if we could get Brunk and Watford alone, Quinones on top would be amazing. But now we're counting a lot of eggs as chickens...

If shooting is not significantly improved, next year will look more like this year than anyone wants to see.

3 of our best 3 point shooters are back and 2 were under classmen if it’s not better a shooting coach needs to be put on staff. 

Really need Brunk to give us a strong big rotation. We can’t keep letting other teams have the two tallest guys on the court

If all of our returning players shoot the exact same percentage that they did this year but the ~200 shots Romeo and Morgan too are split between Green, Phinisee, and Durham our team shooting percentage will rise a lot. That's what I'm saying. Even if our returnees don't get that much better we won't have as many poor shooters taking a high volume of threes which should make a big impact on its own.

The right players need to be taking the 3s next year. Virginia has only two guys shooting 40 percent but because their top 3 shooters took 71% of their attempts probably 85% non garbage time the team shot a high percentage 

Green should take over 30 percent of our 3s and if Phinisee can match his pre concussion numbers he shouldn’t be too far behind

Brunk is likely. The other two are up in the air. We’ll see how it unfolds

Yes he was one of the transfers that had interest in IU but thought that he might conflict with Romeo so he opted to go elsewhere.

I also remember we brought Moretti on campus for a workout and never offered. That was a miss.

I’m curious if we’ll pursue Michael Lewis or not. I like the idea on its face and I haven’t been able to find out if he has other plans already in place.
