Way to early to tell, but...


rumors (or, more likely, hints of whispers of rumors) I have heard suggest that McCorkle is ahead of where folks thought he would be, and Jabri Adbur-Rahim might a bit behind. I imagine that Woldetensae, Morsell, and Stattmann will continue to play the minutes they have in the past, initially. I think the staff has the luxury of adding the frosh to the rotation as they become ready. No one need be forced before they are. Hopefully. It's worth remembering that the back court that won eight straight, and 11 of the final 12 games, returns almost intact (only those minutes of Key's spent there are missing). While they might have struggled early in the season last year, they finished strong. That said, I suspect Clark will get a few more minutes than you have for him, and that Abdur-Rahim will get fewer. Early in the season, a lot fewer. I also think Caffaro might get a bit more time than you suggest. The real unknowns for now, IMO, are McCorkle, McKoy, and Shedrick. The other major question I have is, "What will be the size of the primary rotation?" Typically, Coach Bennett has played a seven or eight man rotation. However, this edition of the Cavs is deeper with more (potential) talent than any I can remember. Theoretically, the rotation could go ten deep, but I strongly doubt that that will happen. It is going to be very interesting to see who, among the returnees, shows the most improvement, and who, among the frosh, shows the most readiness for college ball. Go 'Hoos!!!
