No sense worrying too much about it. McKoy is gone and Gardner is

coming! I personally think it is a WIN for UVa. I wish McKoy had stayed, but he didn't.

SO -- as it stands RIGHT NOW --

Beekman, Kihei, Franklin, Gardner, Shedrick

Taine Murray to rotate in for the first three. Caffaro to rotate in for Gardner/Shedrick. That is an effective 7-man rotation. Now, if MURPHY stays I think it is Kihei's minutes that are most impacted.

Beekman, Franklin, Murphy, Gardner, Shedrick starting five? Regardless, now you have an EIGHT man rotation with a LOT of options. Kihei & Taine Murray for the first three. Caffaro for the Bigs -- with Murphy able to help there too. A NICE 8-man rotation that could do some damage.

AT this point, if Murphy is staying, I gotta believe CTB is looking for a 4/5 - almost exclusively. a grinder that is selfless and can rebound -- Salt-esque. ONE more. Caffaro COULD be that player. Shedrick is the wild-card. Will he be ready? I bet he will be!!!

If TM is leaving, We need a 3/4 -- and probably would still take a role player 4/5. Two more.

I am excited -- Go Hoos!

Question about JG -- Hooplus3 04/13/2021 10:03AM
  I think Bennett would have slotted JG ahead of McKoy -- HTrain90 04/13/2021 10:23AM
  What happened to Statt in your rotations? -- Deja Hoo 04/13/2021 10:27AM

  Absolutely. He played well in stretches in 19-20 -- Hoobedoobedoo 04/13/2021 10:44AM
  I'm not sure we even pursue him if McKoy stays. -- hoos30 04/13/2021 10:12AM
