I think we're all sleeping on Malik Reneau. I understand there is a logjam with TJD and Race, but I think Reneau is going to make his presence felt and allow both TJD and Race time to rest throughout the season.

I'm not. I think think he's going to get a lot of PT this season. He is able to play both the 4 and 5 so he can step in for either TJD or Race. I look for him to be a 20-25 mpg guy. He's too good to play less than 20 mpg. 

I look at it this way. How many minutes would freshman TJD get on this team? Probably 20-25 mpg. I think Reneau will be as good as or better than freshman TJD.

I think Tamar and JHS both start over Kopp.  I also think Banks will be a surprise player this year

I sure hope so. Kopp seems like a great kid but I want him off the bench and playing backup minutes.

Agree! He's a big upgrade at the 4/5 over what both JG and Durr were able to give last year.

I think most of us think JHS is 25 minutes & Reneau is 15-20?

Not as athletic as TJD & Race but highly skilled and physically looks ready for Big Ten

Yeah, I expect JHS too start and Reneau to come off the bench, so JHS will definitely have more opportunity. 

But, in the minutes Reneau gets I expect him to be an immediate contributor and somewhere close to 20mpg.

If JHS starts, who is the backup PG? Is CJ ready to be that guy, or will it be a Trey/Tamar.

We have a lot of interchangeable pieces, so I could see a world where Tamar is the 5th starter and JHS is first off the bench, simply as he's capable of filling in for either guard spot.

You can rotate players enough where you wouldn't really have to have a true backup.

Exactly. There will probably be very few minutes where neither X or JHS are on the floor. In that case, one of Trey or Tamar will fill in for those spot minutes.

We have three ballhandlers in XJ, JHS and Galloway. Obviously XJ is more a true point guard, JHS is a point/combo and Galloway is a secondary type ballhandler. 

I'd expect in most games that 2 of the 3 will almost always (almost being the key word) be on the court.

What is everyone's "ceiling" for Malik this season? 7 pts and a block a game? 

I think that's a little higher than he will average, but certainly attainable...

What are JHS's shooting stats in high school?

I looked, and found 28% from three for the season.  Around 42% overall.  Hoping those numbers are outdated.

 

 

The kid is not a great shooter or a volume scorer.  He averages i think 11 his Sr year.  He is a floor general and moves well with the ball.  Had a good supporting cast on his team.
