The way basketball has changed I think that's the new 4 man.

What I would've called a combo forward or 3.5 is now the new 4. I think depending upon Shedrick's ability to guard athletic posts that we'll see McCoy guard some 5s when Jay is out.

Going down a rabbit hole for a minute. If you compare height and weight between McCoy, Houser, and JAR, there's very little difference. There's a strength difference but very little difference in height and weight. So can Sam or JAR play the 5 if we go super small? If Jay fouled out against someone and they were a very small, quick team. Would we get enough rebounding from Houser/JAR/Tomas/Casey/Kihei?

  McKoy does not appear to be much over 6-6, if that -- HiltonHeadHoo 11/09/2020 2:45PM
