Since you’re in the practices, outside of the player who shall not be named, who are the team’s best players ranked? Guilien Smith has been hurt, but we get him back for one more year. Will we be better next year?

If we can get good play at the point guard position (a freshman, a transfer), and assuming everyone returns....

... we should indeed be better.

State of the team?

Honestly I have taken more of a step back this year as the crunch to graduate takes place, and thus don't see nearly as much as I once did.

I wont rank the whole team, but from what I've seen here is a top 5.

!. Chris Knight
2. Barry
3. Jackson
4. Emery
5.Sistare

I don't want to include Guillien as I don't want to extrapolate on how this injury may or may not affect his play.

The good news is that most of our skill is young. The bad news is that we lack a lot of leadership now and someone will need to step up big time. We also need a pure point.

I'd say we are slightly better next year, but I wouldnt bet on us competing for a top 5 spot.

Taurus Samuels is a Top 5 player in the 2018 Ivy class, IMO.

Against Princeton, Jackson looked like the best player on the team, both games. I presume he's performed worse in other games, because otherwise I can't fathom how short his minutes were.

That's good to know. Plus Slajchert is a solid 3 star recruit on ESPN.

My annoying outsider take is that Barry probably should be #1, and Rai should be on the list instead of Sistare. Knight has some of the same efficiency issues I pointed out with Boudreaux. However, with the high usage rate and obvious talent (and an efficiency rate that is solid for a freshman with high usage — just not good enough to justify the usage), he is a good bet to jump as a soph. On Sistare, he has spent his first two years with an ORAT below the line where players usually develop into starters. It’s not impossible, but Rai has been better as a freshman than Sistare has been as a soph. So I’d make him my #5 on the roster.

I'd agree except for the fact that Rai is incredibly slow and an atrocious defender IMO. At best, he is a sit out on the three point line and fire away kinda guy, but he hasn't even been that this year.

Still- some more quickness/agility work and better bball IQ and id replace him over Sistare, certainly his ceiling is higher.

I'm not going to lie. It stings everytime Xavier comes on TV. No matter how you feel about him we lost a high major talent.

As I said, while nobody is happy with finishing last... our season could have been worse.
