I don’t see brunk starting unless Davis’ injuries persist: Davis is some level all bigten when healthy as a senior. If brunk plays more than 20 minutes a game something went wrong with Davis.

As for Smith, he isn’t starting at the 4 as TJD will be so that leaves him as the backup 4 or starting 3 or backup 3.

If he wants to be a 3 he better hope Hunter isn’t ready or he improves a ton

The concern is if hunter does not play than what. Smith might get the minutes. Brunk played alot early but his minutes went down later. Seems like a 15 to 20 minute guy maybe. He is perfect for the big ten though against harmes and those guys.

Honestly, who cares what Justin wants.....if he earns a starting spot....GREAT, if not TOO BAD!  Get better.  I hate the idea of being recruited over, if that is a problem, WORK YOUR ARSE off and CLAIM YOUR SPOT....if not...get out of the way.

I agree. Unfortunately a kid usually transfers if that happens in todays era.

Pretty much how life works right? If you really want something then you gotta put in the work. It’s really not that hard

There are 200 minutes available on the court.  If you play well enough, you'll get your time.

I know we've been playing three guards a ton, but that really has been out of necessity.

Averaged 7.7 ppg and averaged 18.9 mpg and started 13 games of the 32 they played. I don't why he didn't go here in the first place. I saw him play in high school and I wasn't that blown away.

If Brunk and Davis can both average about 8 ppg at around 20 minutes each game with good rebounding and great defense we’ll be in a better place.

Davis has the potential to score more than 8ppg. If healthy I’m looking for 12-14. He’s a load within 5 feet

I agree mostly. I think if he stays healthy AND stays out of foul trouble he could for sure. I think him and Brunk sort of become our two headed monster in that position. I feel if both together could get to that 14-16 ppg and 10 boards in 40 min between them it’s a win.

Exactly where I’m at with the stats. Although, I have a feeling we’ll see some of Jackson-Davis at the 5 too. If Davis is healthy AND conditioned (limiting his fatigued fouls) he could easily be a double figure scorer. Getting a double double from the 5 spot with great defense will be key.

If Davis is conditioned we could also see him average a couple assists per game which would be huge. Our shooting percentage would be much higher if Davis forces opponents to double him.

I have a bad feeling the staff is going to try and force a square peg in a round hole with Jackson-Davis playing the 4. I don’t think he’s quick enough to defend most Big Ten 4s nor has the perimeter game, yet(!), to keep teams honest.
