    Do we really need a point when we pass the ball around the 3 point line and throw up a desperation shot at the end????

    The question is who is going to get to the rim and who is going to defend the rim.

    Tyson needs to step up as I believe he has the most potential on the team.

    That still doesn't leave us a post defender.

    Do we have an offense other than the "weave"? Yes I know some will say it is effective and some will say boring. But if you do not have enough slashers going to the rim to contact of get the layup the weave ends up with a heaved up 3 at the end of the shot clock. The old Colorado shuffle I ran back in high school is better than the weave. Need to knock down 82% of team freethrows this year.

    Looking forward to the season, and how this group comes together.
    Geu needs to start and begin to carry this team. What are people advocating putting him on the bench again and playing 5 minutes a game. AJ at the 4 is what is ludicrous. AJ, Paul and Ward should be a 3 person rotation at the 2 & 3. Hunter and Van at the 1. Geu, Miller and Eli covering the 4-5. AJ at the 4 puts 4 players on the perimeter and gives this team no physical presence.

    Disagree with the bolded part. That's basically forcing at least one of your 3 best returning players to be on the bench at all times. Like someone said earlier with NDSU's "offense" you don't need an elite passer at PG... in fact it's more valuable to have a PG that can shoot and create off the dribble for himself. That pretty much defines Paul Miller to a tee so I think he'd fit fine as the PG and primary ball handler this year. Hunter would be a good guy to bring in against teams that press to have that extra ball handler.

    Can Miller play D against the other PGs in the Summit?

    Paul is a very good defensive player. IMO

    I also think he's a solid defender but my biggest issue with Paul playing PG would be fatigue. A lot of teams we play pressure the ball all the way up the court which requires additional energy to bring up and then also have to guard some of the quickest guys on opposing teams every possession can really wear a guy out who needs to have legs at the end of games to score in the clutch. Khy was a machine, how he played that many minutes at the pace he did was insane, I don't know if Paul is most effective for our team doing that. I think Cam will start and Geu will be the 6th man, I actually like the idea of Geu coming off the bench as he can provide a spark and can provide a nice rotation in the 3/4 spots to get our starters rest one guy at a time.

    Have AJ bring the ball up... He did nothing last year.

    Will be interesting to see if any of the freshman (Eady, Mertens, Kreuser and Meidinger) redshirt at all. From a physical stand point it sure looks like Eady and Kreuser could play right away. But we do have Dulm and Quayle that came in as transfers to compete with Samuelson and Hunter for minutes as well.
    Any inside report from practice or anything. Only 3 weeks out.
