    In response to SRP

Arirguzoh over the last 3 games playing minutes have been 30, 27 and 28 which is a big plus as his play is clearly above Gladson and Much. Morales, particularly, and Llewellyn will get him the ball in a good position to score. He is a good not great defender who is improving as well as a solid defensive and offensive rebounder. His FT percentage has drastically improved as well as his overall game. Can he compete against IL centers -- probably. Gladson should be the #2 center getting 5 to 10 minutes as he has a different game than Arirguzoh.

The backcourt offensively will be the driving force and the question will be does Mitch go small with all 3 on the floor for 20+ minutes or not. It does appear that Llewellyn can play defense, Cannady can rebound and Morales can steal the ball. Question will be match ups both offensively and defensively but it gives the other coach something to think about. SNY commentators made the statement that Cannady may have the purest shooting stroke in college basketball which says a lot. The three of them just need to play a little more under control yet keep foot on throttle.

Myles is struggling offensively but Llewellyn may take some pressure off Stephens offensively until he gets his stroke back. Myles has shot 40% on 3 pt shots over the prior two years and had a high 2 pt %. Not this year but he has been forcing his shots as he has probably felt the need to score. Now, much less need and he should simply let the game come to him while ramping up his defensive and rebounding effort and performance. He has been All Ivy for the past two years.

As to either the fifth starting spot or the first player off the bench, I do not see any alternative other than DesRosiers or Much on the roster. Much has more size but not the shooting stroke of Desrosiers. I would play whoever works best with Llewellyn's game as Jaelin will get the ball to one of these guys in the open. Schweiger should get limited minutes especially against athletic teams like Harvard and Yale.

Mitch can finally get five players on the floor that are good although undersized. It would be huge if someone other than Gladson can be relied upon and really good if bot Much and Desrosiers get their act together.
