PICK YOUR STARTING FIVE!

With only a few days left until the first exhibition, let’s have some fun, shall we?

There’s been a lot of speculation about the starting lineup since Madness — Calipari will likely play all three guards at once, but will he go big with Isaac Humphries and Bam or start Derek Willis to stretch the floor? We won’t know for sure until Sunday, but until then, PICK YOUR STARTING FIVE in the ranker below:

    it seems like briscoe and monk may be shooting better than some of the warnings about the team suggested, so i would start isaac instead of derek. if you are playing 3 guards and starting derek with the idea of spreading the floor, it seems like rebounding will suffer. so, three guards, isaac and bam!.

    but, with a team centered around freshmen we are all basing our choices on a few minutes of blue-white scrimmage with very little defense, what we know of a few guys from last year and “reports”… that isaac is greatly improved. that isaiah is hitting outside. that monk, de’aaron and bam are as advertised, etc.

    If I’m Cal, it will vary based on who the Cats are playing. Starting is overrated.

    It might be counter-productive to play Willis with Monk, Fox, Briscoe, and Adebayo – there may not be enough shots for him. It might be better to bring him in as # 6 and place him in a lineup that needs his shooting more.
