Not sure how long the roster for this coming season as been up on the site but I just noticed it today.

Couple things of note:
- Freshman writes ups are up
- Soto’s changed his number from 3 to 4
- Alexander Rice is listed as “Xander”

#4 a good number. Worn by three Bison who made All-PL in the scholarship era. Hopefully Sotos will be the fourth to get that honor.

Crazy that no player has grown taller or put on even a pound from last year...or they simply do not update anything other than replace graduated players with freshmen. Pictures do not change either.

My recollection is that they update the heights and weights in October, once regular practices have begun. They definitely have changed heights and weights on a number of occasions in the past.

As an example, on last year's roster Bruce Moore's weight was up 10 pounds while Paul Newman dropped 10 pounds. A bigger example was Zach Thomas, who gained 18 pounds during his Bucknell tenure. And Mike Muscala grew an inch during his time as a Bison.

Think most would agree 4 of the 5 starting lineup spots are set [Sotos, Toomer, Moore, Newman]...the 3 position would then be open. Any thoughts on who might fill that role? Funk would seem to me as the frontrunner

I agree Funk would be the frontrunner. Seems to be the best fit.

One other possibility - especially against PL teams who mostly have small centers - would be to start Moore at the five. The Bison this year have a glut of talented PF's - Moore, Meeks, Spear, van der Heijden, and Rhodes - so that would be a way to get two of them on the court simultaneously. Theoretically you could go big and start one of those PF's at the three, but on defense only Moore could guard a three.

To me, the best lineup against a team that doesn't have a big center is Moore, Meeks, Toomer, Funk, and Sotos.

137, I agree that Meeks would be a good addition to a smaller lineup, but the variable is his health. Does anybody know if 1. He is healthy, and 2. Is there a reasonable expectation that he will remain healthy?

'RAY FOR THE ORANGE AND THE BLUE!

1. He was healthy in the latter part of the spring and early summer. Haven't heard any reports since then.

2. I think the trainers/doctors think there is a reasonable chance for him to remain healthy - but you never know with foot injuries.

Meeks has the potential to make some level of All-PL before he graduates if he can play enough minutes.

From what I have heard he is still dealing with the same foot issue. Hopefully he can lay low the next few weeks or so and get it 100 percent for November.
