Belo
Trent
Monte
Grandison
Payne

Plummer/Hutch/Hawkins/Melendez maybe Goode/Podz off the bench.

Young guys will be forced to develop their game when facing Trent and Damonte every day in practice. Returning those super seniors will be extremely valuable toward moving our 2020-21 culture forward, especially if we lose OA and/or Chin.

Really hope we can snag another 5 for depth behind Payne.
If that is our lineup we will be bottom third in big ten

Kofi changes things immensely. Without him Payne could still be a serviceable rim protector. Not to mention any big in the country could flirt with 10 per game with Curbelo on the floor. I feel like there are too many scoring threats coming in for our 1-4 to really struggle offensively. Newcomers picking up defensively will be critical. Who better to help than Trent and Monte. Just wish AM was around to work in this offense and OA was around to work with Payne.

Yeah, the missed opportunity there is a real bummer. For Payne too I'm sure. I have to imagine seeing what OA did with Kofi had him excited to work with the guy.

It seems the roster is now finally starting to take shape. Trent and DaMonte put us at 15 scholarship players. Assuming Kofi returns and Adam departs, our rotation might look something like this:

Nice depth chart. If I were picking nits, BBV is on the G/F line, and should probably be on the F line or even a F/C line.

I know BU has said BBV can eventually be a 3, but.....no way. haha.

I know it's a running joke at this point, but I really do think Hutch will start over DMW. Thinking DMW will come off of the bench again and provide really valuable minutes at the end of games.
