Nov 19 v Vermont, at JPJ: Will feature old friend Daniel Giddens
We last saw 6-11 240 lb Giddens on our Dec 2015 trip to Columbus, where he was a highly touted freshman starter for Cornjerker Thad Matta. He played 25 minutes. Our Brogdon-led team won by 6. Salt was a RS Frosh.
Long and windy road for Giddens, as he transferred to Bama, and then just grad transferred to the Catamounts.
I assume he starts at the 5, while DJ Laster-esque Anthony Lamb (undersized and highly effective low-mid major power forward) starts at the 4.
Should be an interesting early season scenario for how we deploy our post talent against a team with multiple post threats.
H/t to Seth Davis Athletic mailbag for the Giddens tip.
