Two men over 6'10" and 235 and 280 are the size we need. Think we know what we get with Kofi, Antwan is the mystery to me. The clips show a very athletic big man but have no idea whether he has the skills to play in the big but he is physically ready unlike Samba. Just hope he is here in the summer to work on skills. Even if OA is limited in time, believe Giorgi will help in his development. Think Samba is more suited to backup Giorgi at the 4 than the 5. In what few minutes he played he didn't seem afraid to shoot or take it to the rim. Has to be a lot easier for the guards to make layups with Giorgi and Kofi blocking out. Also much more confident to shoot if you have those two on the boards.We had 8 new faces and were significantly undersized to compete in the toughest Big Ten in years. Hopefully we don't suffer any transfers this offseason and both recruits arrive as expected. That being said, can the team get strong enough over the summer to rebound against the Wisconsins, Purdues, and Michigan States of the conference?
As much as I hope there is enough improvement so that Selection Sunday next year will be a cause for celebration, I don't have much confidence that it will materialize.
