      @jack pilgrim I was wondering when will we get some summer practice updates like in the past on each player.

      And who has been the biggest surprise & standout…. thus far

    We have really small team this year, two 6’9 guys . The other 2 bigs are not playing as of right now

    Now, with that said, tye one thing I noticed that might be a bit of a concern IMO, is we only have 3 Forwards over 220 pounds. One of them is a walk-on (Payne), another one of them is waiting to hear if he’ll be able to play this season (Sarr), and the 3rd is Lance Ware. I don’t think it will determine how well this team plays most of the season, but in my opinion it could give us some problems when playing teams with a larger front court. Also, if Sarr does become eligible, and ends up starting at the 5, but during a game gets in foil trouble and has to sit for most of the game, we become EXTREMELY Thin (Literally in Weight and #s) in the front court. Hoping that our talent allows us to overcome it but, it will be something to watch when the season starts. Go Cats
