At this rate, Andy Katz’s daily “3-point shot” column should really be renamed “Things Cal told me last night.” This morning, Katz shared Cal’s comments about his new squad, whom he got to practice with yesterday. Cal revealed one surprising bit of information: the only sure starters at this point are freshmen Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress, and sophomore Ryan Harrow may come off the bench. This goes against the perceived notion that Harrow, already having one year of Cal’s tutelage under his wing, would start immediately; however, Cal also said that he was “extremely pleased” with Harrow and Julius Mays, the senior transfer whom he foresees becoming a legitimate rotation player.
So, from the horse’s mouth, we know Goodwin and Poythress will start. Get your brain in gear this morning by filling out the rest of the starting lineup.
