I'm not convinced of our guard depth or talent this year....i know it was supposed to be a strength, but....or tDePaul doesn’t have our guard depth or talent this year, but Gage is a solid PG, JCL is close to double digits in scoring despite not shooting well from 3 so far. They have 3 bigs, who we would love to have and Reed is a VERY promising 6’9” athletic guy who has an offensive game, he will get paid to play when it’s all said and done. Big difference to me is Cain and Strus at 6’6” and strong offensive games, especially Strus.
I believe their roster is more talented due to its balance, I still think they’re dealing with believing how good they can be. Losing Strus next year will hurt, but they have a lot coming back and a lot of talent coming in.
I’ve been lambasted by a couple here for saying DePaul is very much on the rise, but look at their roster and recruiting class and a 6’7” Arkansas transfer (Darius Hall) sitting out this year and it’s very hard to argue which program is in a better talent position.
I think with the ultimate geek cheerleader Pantelis Xidias, DePaul wins.
I'll admit that I was saying out loud that Ayo can just bring his intangibles / court savvy but deep down I was thinking this 5 star should be good for 20 a game every night.
