I believe Screen and Timmerman will play minutes together; however, you need Timmerman to come off the bench for Center depth.

Jake VDH could emerge if he fulfills his shooting/scoring potential. That remains to be seen, and I will maintain my relatively low expectations.

Brock Newton has the potential to have a HUGE impact with his energy and rebounding talent. Remains to be seen if his production in practice will translate on the court when it counts.

Motta is the X-Factor in my view. Unless Funk, Rice and Screen get Fouland-Thomas-Brown level production (Unlikely), a 4th player must contribute to putting ball in basket. It just seems to me that whether or not Timmerman, VDH or someone else become scorers, Motta will be seen as our make or break. Just a gut feeling.

I think Malachi can quietly impress us this year. He has always been solid, and if he can make wide open jumpers, I think he is a safely net-positive player.

I ultimately see this freshman class being VERY STRONG, I just hope they can progress enough this year to help us win March 2022.

  • Scotty-14 Said:
Here's my Projected Depth Chart:

PG: Xander Rice | Josh Bascoe

SG: Elvin Edmonds | Ian Motta | Josh Adoh

SF: Andrew Funk | Ian Motta | Jake Van Der Heijden | Josh Adoh

PF: Malachi Rhodes | Brock Newton | Jake VDH

C: Andre Screen | Alex Timmerman





Thanks for putting this out there. I agree with a lot, but disagree with some.

At SG, I don't see Motta in the picture at all. Having watched his video, I don't think he has the skill set to play guard. Also I think we will see times when Bascoe plays PG and Rice moves to SG.

Also I don't see JVH figuring into the equation. The Bucknell "small forward" spot is really more of a third guard, and I don't think JVH has the ball-handling skills. But I think he has a good shot to start at PF, which is his more natural position. Rhodes is the other option there - being a better rebounder and defender - but he has shown nothing at all at the offensive end in two years. I doubt Newton will see many minutes at any position this year.

As for center, the good news is that it appears Timmerman has dropped some weight. Still he may have to battle Rhodes for some of the backup center minutes.

CBS Sports has released its preseason rankings for all Division 1 teams. They have us at #277, directly below Lipscomb and exactly one ahead of Lehigh. Several PL teams were ranked ahead of us, no surprise.

Seven teams are ranked ahead of the Bison by CBS. Only LU and HC behind. Having said that, CBS (Norlander) spends almost no time at all trying to evaluate the teams below #100, unless they are well-know P5 teams.

Are you sure? Just look at his deeply insightful analysis of Bucknell basketball:

"277. Bucknell: Who's got the Funk? Bucknell's got the Funk. Gotta have that Funk. Andrew Funk (12.9 ppg) is the pivotal returnee for the Bison. Time for a music break! https://youtu.be/l4nOHdUntyM "

OK, I have to ask. Who clicked on the link above and listed to "We Got The Funk"?

I did!
New season, new team, new dream . . .

This is just me but if I had the reins I'd start Timmerman and Jake VDH. We could overpower on the inside and have touch on the perimeter. Is there going to be a midnight madness rally of some sort this year? Its gotta be coming up.

I wondered about that too, Paulie. The women had their event today.

The men, unlike the women’s team, don’t make much of an effort to reach out to fans.

You all probably know this, but the letter accompanying my tickets said, among other things, that while they’re planning for 100 percent capacity, state and local health orders may reduce that number, which could affect your seat location. Also, face masks are mandatory, and there will be no halftime or postgame schmoozing in the Green Room.

Facemasks? Really?

Does anyone know if the concession stand will be open; or we BYOR?

Husky: Yes, it’s in bold type and specifically states that the mask must cover mouth AND nose.

54: I’m assuming the concession stand will be open, because the mask requirement has a single exception for when you’re eating.

Are these symbols in several posts code for something?
