I look for Miller to get plenty of playing time, but I will be shocked if he gets a starting spot before 2021 unless or until he proves he can play defense at a B1G level. Freshmen have to earn their sport in a starting lineup by doing just that and playing consistently. If Griff did not earn his spot in two years, why would BU give Miller a spot? Lou certainly would not even have entertained the thought in NOV. and few coaches would. Let Miller gain confidence and feel he has earned the respect of his teammates. Too much experienced talent for a frosh to get a starting spot on this team. But if they earn it and the chemistry proves out...they should get the nod. You gotta show me...and there is plenty of time and opportunity for that.
Not so sure, Griffin has better no’s. proportional to his mins than Ayo and didn’t start. Think it is still going to be defense oriented. Defense travels! Would expect Ayo and Trent to have much improved three point %’s. BU seems to value the balance in his rotation more than who starts.You have Ayo and Kofi and the other three will be determined by who can play off those two the best on both ends whole still being able to impact the games . I dont buy BU being so in love with all this experience that he tosses out three sub 30% or lower three point shooters in a starting lineup lineup around Kofi again .
Giorgi and Kofi together last year did not play out very well. Giorgi will come off the bench to back up Kofi at the 5-because he’s really the only option. Hamlin was OK in very limited time last year, so maybe he’s an option-but I think it will very likely be Giorgi as the backup.My 2 cents:
Put me in the camp that Miller gets a starting spot. I see the 1-3 spots being thoroughly covered with Ayo, Trent, Miller, Curbelo. Kofi will be 25+ min at center with Giorgi taking the rest. The 4 spot is up for grabs in my mind. Curious if Giorgi at the 4 is something they'll try again this year.
Ayo played his best when playing off ball last year. I can see all our 5 guards getting 20+ minutes... AC is probably the best distributor option we'll have. Unbelievable depth and we should be able to run opponents to exhaustion.You have Ayo and Kofi and the other three will be determined by who can play off those two the best on both ends whole still being able to impact the games . I dont buy BU being so in love with all this experience that he tosses out three sub 30% or lower three point shooters in a starting lineup lineup around Kofi again .
