Harvard, Penn and Brown now have threads open on this, so I figured we should get looking at our options for next year.

Among rotation players, we really only lose Bell and Young. Bell will be missed for his great driving skills, defense, and his ability to make clutch plays. Young's shooting will be missed, but I thin is replacable. Brennan played sparingly but was clearly passed over by Gladson and Aririguzoh down the stretch. Rotation players returning will be Cannady, Stephens, Much, Desrosiers, Gladson, Aririguzoh, Schweiger and Morales.

Cannady and Stephens are locked in as starters (and captains?). The hype behind Llewellyn suggests he may be ready to start in the backcourt alongside Cannady right away. The other 2 spots get a little tricky. I see it as 4 guys for 2 spots between Much, Desrosiers, Gladson, and Aririguzoh. Gladson and Aririguzoh can't play together, but MH seemed to prefer playing Much with one of them so he could play the perimeter. Desrosiers was the most consistent freshman and a great shooter, so I'd like to see him get the initial nod. Aririguzoh showed good growth from freshman to sophomore year, and if he makes a similar leap into junior year (esp on offense) he will likely start, so my prediction is Llewellyn, Cannady, Desrosiers, Stephens, Aririguzoh.

Off the bench then, we'd have Much and Gladson as the first two off the bench, with Scweiger, and Morales also probably contributing. Don't know enough about the other freshmen to know if they'll be competing for rotation spots. Seems a little thin and definitely requires improvements from last year's freshmen and early contributions from at least Llewellyn.
