Our depth problems were all in the frontcourt though


Woldo/Morsell were not starter-quality, but the dropoff when they spelled Beekman/Clark/Murphy was manageable.

But the dropoff whenever we subbed anyone for Hauser or Huff was dramatic. There was only one post-pair that came close to their production, and that was some brief appearances of Caffaro/Hauser. All other lineups without Hauser+Huff (both together) were unmitigated disasters. McKoy was never close to effective, nor were any of the small-ball lineups with Murphy at the 4.

I think to blame our problems on Beekman/Clark is just not fair. Yes they could not carry the offense when Hauser or Huff sat, but nobody else could carry the defensive responsibilities for those positions either. Both the defense and the offense fell apart without one or both of Huff/Hauser on the floor (especially Huff because Huff/Murphy + 3 guards was workable in short bursts but Hauser/Murphy + 3 guards was not).

So the problem last season was not any of our regular players. It was the players we did NOT have that any normal roster would have. And if there was one huge mistake last season it was not leaning hard on developing Caffaro more so he could provide that depth when Shedrick went down.

The biggest problem with last season was no depth in the post positions. The biggest problem with next season looks distressingly similar. Where is our post depth?
