Ayo Dosunmu, Kofi Cockburn return for 2020-2021 season

This maybe the strongest team with the most depth of any team in recent history. The coaching staff must be smiling ear to ear. Their job is going to be tough. Can’t wait for the season to start.
The 2000 & 2001 teams were stacked 1-10. Thought this team may have better top level talent, but that team had multiple NBA players too. Would be really fun to watch that team against this team, they had the big boys and toughness to throw at Kofi and had guards that could score. Not sure who would win.
 
Wow! I thought for sure Ayo was gone!

A couple thoughts... assuming there will be a season...
1. We'll be really good even if Kofi declares, but ... don't do that big guy!
2. Alan Griffin must be choking his mom right now about convincing him to leave
3. Has there ever been a national champion with 0 players having played in the NCAA tourney? That would be us if we win it all
4. BU might just have the horses to run that pressure defense he started with in spurts... that might be a game changer in close ones!
5. Please, Please go away Covid-19!!!!!
 
Who do we lose to?
what’s our non-con look like? I assume whoever we play in nicevill FL will be our toughest non-con and then road games in the states of Iowa and Michigan (and maybe indiana/wisconsin) will be our toughest conference matchups. We probably matchup with like the 5th team in the ACC so it’ll be tough but totally winnable. We should steam roll in St Louis...
 
I think there’s about a 0% chance Curbelo starts. I know we are all really high on him, but Miller is more likely to be the day one contributor and will be better off the ball. Trent starts at the point with Ayo and Miller or Ayo and Damonte.
respectfully disagree. Kid is special at the point and the complete BU player

Expecting big things!
 
3 guards spots, 120 minutes per game, with 4 guys likely to do the heavy lifting: Ayo, Curbelo, Trent, Acewolf. DMW will have a role given his defense, his taking care of the ball, and ability to guard multiple positions. It's a question in my mind what that translates into minutes, though. In some ways the freshman will have less pressure on them, as both Trent and Ayo are capable of handling big minutes if they can't step up right away. In the long run, they'll have to compete for how many minutes they get, and that should push them. Pretty exciting having that kind of talent on the roster.

He is special...and I've been one of his most vocal fans here, including a hot take that he will have the longest NBA career of anyone currently on our roster.

That said...he's not starting over Trent, Ayo, Miller, or DMFW. You can say it as many times as you want...if everyone is healthy...it's not happening. Even if BU goes with a 4 guard lineup.

thank you Brad for clearing that up. I will move on
Lol, well...I wasn't trying to be combative...I just don't know who he replaces. Gun to my head...Curbelo starts before Miller.

Nobody knows how anything will play out. To say “it’s not happening”? None of us know.

All I know is he maybe one of, if not, the beat true PG we have on the roster. That’s setting everyone up to score. But, BU loves defense so how’s his defense?

Time will tell and it shall be fun to watch play out.
 
Curbelo going to play major minutes posdibly clise games. Ball handeling and play making are a premium, he should reduce our turnovets from ladt year
