Hopefully Becker honors the guy with the hot hand, too

TBH, Duncan, Steidl will all be locks for starters. I think Lamb and Henson will fill the other two starting slots.

Gonna be a deep team- Wills, Ward, Payen, Hearlihy, Urquhart, Ev Duncan, Rohrer. Think all those players have started games at one time or the other. Maybe not Ev Duncan.

Obviously Dingba has to red shirt but we're still planning on red shirting Shungu and Dalrimpyle, or has their play or any injuries changed this?

Starting 5:

TBH
Steidl
Wills
Payen
Henson
As long as Ernie is healthy he's a lock to start.

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

TBH over Ward.
Duncan over wills
Steidl over Hearlihy
Lamb over Payen
Henson over drew.

I think the starters are pretty clearly better than the back ups.

I'm guessing shungu redshirting is depending on our pg health. With Duncan out until mid November possibly and another pg could get hurt he might not.

I believe it's been made public that Shungu will redshirt.

It's a long season, the starting lineups will change. They always have under Becker. I know players care about starting, but to me, that's less important than who's in at the end if the game is in the balance.

Having not seen any of the new guys play, I don't know who starts at the beginning of the season, I would agree; however, that TBH, Duncan (if healthy) and Steidl are most likely.

We have a boatload of guys on the roster this year. I can't remember this many guys, ever. Practices must be pretty competitive. I really like the option of having a lot of guys that can give valuable minutes. Injuries will happen...

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Wills will get the start in place of Duncan at the beginning of the year while Duncan is still recovering from his wrist injury. It's a bold prediction to put two guys that have never played a minute of game action for Vermont in the starting line-up. If Lamb and Henson end up being the starters then we are going to be very good.

We have loads up depth at the forward position. Lots of bodies and styles to throw at opposing teams.

Not yet. We have 12 players who can play so depth is a non issue.

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Henson with 33 and lamb with 19 in the scrimmage as top two scorers. Henson is gonna be huge. Hearlihy has been playing point fine so I have no doubt shungu will redshirt and is not needed for depth at the position.

I'm gonna play everyone's most hated game. Allocate the minutes.

TBH 28 Ward 12
Duncan 28 wills 12
Steidl 25 Hearlihy 15
Lamb 25 Payen 15
Henson 30 drew 10

I don't think the minutes spread is going to be that disparate. I think Henson will see 25 and Hearlihy even if he comes off the bench is going to see closer to 20. I expect the minutes across the board will be spread pretty evenly to keep guys fresh thoughout the long grind of a season. We are going to wear a lot of teams down with our depth this year.

Go Cats Go!
Coach Becker said Lamb is similar to Voelkel in rebounding. Imagine a "Brian Voelkel-like player that can score consistently in double figures!

Becker made a point of talking up Drew Urquhart at some length in that podcast. How he's totally transformed his body, changed his diet, grew an inch or two, etc. Listen for yourselves, but he seemed to be suggesting that Drew would surprise a lot of people. (Hey, let's hope he's right!)

At the ticket pickup Becker told me that Drew is over 6'10" and about 240# now. That's a big boy.
