Who do you think will/should start? Who will be in the rotation and who will not? Curious to see what your guys opinion is. Mine:
PG: Kaleb/Mintz/Clement
SG: Foster/Alexander/Ballock
SF: Tazz/Ballock
PF: Ronnie/Martin
C: Heggs/Martin/Suarez
I think we will start 10/11 deep at the start of the season. I'm thinking Epperson will redshirt.

PG: Joseph
SG: Foster
SF: Thomas
PF: Hegner
C: Krampelj

the 4/5 slots depend on who rebounds better..toby obviously has the skill edge on martin to play the 4...suarez is the main backup C. i could also see ronnie starting and either toby or martin coming off the bench to back up both frontcourt positions. I'm still unsure on Epperson..him redshirting or not might depend on how many minutes they think manny will be able to provide.

Hard for me to believe we won't be able to find a way to keep Ronnie off the floor next year.

PG: Joseph
SG: Foster
SF: KT
PF: Ronnie
C : Hegner

For tougher, more physical opponents, I'd swap Ronnie for Toby and insert Manny at the 5--at least to start.

this is kind of what I think also. Someone may make a run at Joseph to start at PG, though. We'll have to see there.

It would be cool to see Ronnie crack the starting lineup. The player we saw during the URI game could be quite valuable to a fast paced offense. I think his biggest roadblock to minutes is that he's most comfortable as the primary ball handler.

I think we have to start Ronnie simply because nobody else is much of a rebounder

I think Ronnie provides more than just rebounding, he is another good passer, a decent shooter with dribble drive capability and, if Mac plays him at the 4 he presents matchup problems, just as if he plays him at the 1 he presents matchup problems.

This is all true, but his blocking out can be suspect on the boards. Either way, I think Martin is our best rebounder, even if he had very limited minutes last year
