The starting lineup could go one of two ways.
G:Russell Jones jr/Kamar Robertson
G:Russell Jones Jr/Kamar Robertson
Center was a big issue going into the off season with the departure of Claude. Ive watched film on both Charles Lampten and Corneilous Williams. Both don't have to much film. Lampten had a highlight reel from his days at Dawson CC and he was great around the rim and was a great rim protector. He also runs the floor very well and can score in transition. He certainly is not built like Claude so he could get pushed around on the block. His length should save him. Corneilous Williams did not see action at LSU due to a shoulder injury so I had to resort to high school and AAU highlights. Like Lampten he is great at finishing at the rim, protects the rim and runs the floor. He's tall and lengthy but could use some time in the weight room. None of these videos for either guy showed them shooting a jump shot so they will make a living around the rim. Not sure how much we will see of Kaleb Siler but definitely a young guy to keep an eye on. I expect to see Colin Granger some just because of his size and physicality.
Our bench is going to be deeper with Kamar Robertson and depending on if we go big or small your going to have Campbell, Pelote and Williams.
I'm really excited for the upcoming season. We have our top scorers returning and we added some pieces that should be fun to watch. Coach has quietly assembled a very good roster.

I think the kid from Mercer will have to start or get a lot of playing time. Also the big kid from LSU might be too good not to play for us. Coach should have lots of options to match up with just about anyone in our conference. Coach can go big or small and anything in between depending on the situation. Coach kept the lineup from last year pretty much intact. With the portal in place that is no small feat.
