BOOM! Josh Carlton UCONN Center

Big Forwards and Centers on Lineup so Far at the 5 is Cheney, Carlton, and Powell
4 - Fabian, Jwan, and Armbrester


I wouldnā€™t mind landing another 6ā€™11 guy in the portal. Shoot, you catch one fish, why not another?

I love Powellā€™s game. He will still be a freshmen next year. Carlton only has one year, with Chaney, and Fabien gone also i hope he sees the future is set for him take over in 2022


Carlton or Chaney can start.

It order to until early 4 bigs it will come down to who plays best together.

The one who may get lost in this is Roberts.


Donā€™t remember him hurting us much. What did his stats look like against us?
Regardless he is a big body and should get some time behind Cheney.
Surprised Kopp hasnā€™t made a decision yet. 6-7 forward who shoots treys at a 39.6 % rate. Not a great shot creator but a tough kid who will buy into the culture if he comes home

I think Kopp will be the next piece to the puzzle to fall.

The third piece will be the most important and needs to be a high level so starter

This is a good get. Canā€™t complain about having this addition. Now letā€™s get a solid point guard!


I doubt we bring in a true point, maybe a good shooting off guard

This get allows Powell to grow into the role ā€¦he has skills and length but he doesnā€™t have the frame yet to keep other bigs from rebounding and scoring ā€¦

I think heā€™ll help our guards more. We had lots of trouble driving on good bona fide bigs. Facing one every day in practice should help everyone on the team learn how to finish when they are in the trees.

Quick look at his games this season and looks pretty productive on the boards. Even grabbed 11 rebs against USC. Mins just dropped after new year as others pointed out.

We just need another guard who can create and play. I have no issues with Sasser and Shead running point and using Mark to facilitate

If we can just get average play from the center spot next year that will go a long way. Having a legit sized big should make life easier on everyone, even if he is just average.

Heā€™s not going to be Hakeem, but who is. Iā€™m really excited. Grabbed 11 boards against USC and the Mobleys. We could have used his size Saturday


Heck he rebounded and finished well against us so that enough for me to understand what he can be

Sounds like we beat Pitt and Wake Forest for him so he had interests.
