Start Curtis and Al- at least they look like they want to be out there. RJ may be the softest 4 year starting player I've ever seen suit up for IU. He is not a lead guard, I know that definitively. 2. This team needs Hartman in an awful way. IU is very different with him on the court- brings leadership, shooting, high bball IQ. The 2 guys mentioned above have zero leadership ability and seem to create chaos rather than settle the team down. 3. Deron needs to be our work horse. Our shooting is abysmal and the offense has to work through the post. Deron is skilled enough that the staff should be able to make this work just needs to stay out of foul trouble. 4. Al freakin' Durham welcome to the starting lineup. Loved what I saw from the freshman last night. I think he may be that diamond in the rough player that Crean mined out of no where every few seasons. Has some of that Oladipo attitude and this team needs that badly. 5. Curtis and Devonte have to step up. We know who Newkirk and RJ are and it appears that they've progressed very little if not regressed. The sophomore guards along with Al have the opening right now to take the reigns of this backcourt. Let's see if they're motivated/skilled enough to take over. I bet the guard rotation is going to get very interesting this year- there are zero positives in Archie wasting energy on the seniors IMO. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
