I am crazy but I think that is what he is going to give us next year - maybe 13 and 7. But I anticipate he really has a break out year next year. Im usually right about these things.
I like Drew. He looks good on the court to me. So really surprised at his DNPs and limited minutes down the stretch.

"But where there's an end there's always a new beginning. The Cats will begin next season with more lofty goals and Anthony Lamb back in Green and Gold.

'Definitely. I'm definitely going to stay here.', says Lamb, the America East rookie of the year. 'I love everybody here and I love the atmosphere that everybody presents and the fan base is unbelievable. I just couldn't leave these guys ever.'"

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

I wonder if Drew U was a little injured down the stretch? He is my early prediction for 6th man of the year in the AE.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

Losing both Dre and Kurt to graduation will put a crimp in our defense. I'm curious who steps into the role of defensive stopper on the perimeter.

Not sure how he'll translate but Dalrimpyle's strengths coming out of HS were defense and perimeter shooting- plus, he's 6'5"

I wonder that as well because he seemed a step slow down the stretch. Didn't have the same bounce mobility. Payen drew and lamb were playing good enough to not need him but I wonder

I disagree with defense being his strength out of high school and I think you are going by a quote from Becker that he has a chance to be a great defender. He has good length but was a step slow defensively. He is not a sg on this level right now. Not quick enough to guard fast 2s. I would say his other strength coming out of high school was rebounding. He is kind of like an Everett Duncan with 3 and rebounding. Everett is more polished at this point but dalyrimple has a higher ceiling. I think Everett has close to 3 years on him.

Hearlihy will be our d stopper on the Wing. After that I'm hoping Nash.

RE: Drew's minutes down the stretch.

Drew was playing really good basketball early in the season and OOC- then I think a sense of urgency kicked into Payen and that's when Darren started to have his big games. So Payen reclaimed his spot on the depth chart, and then Henson came back from injury and was re-inserted back into the starting lineup, all the while Lamb was just playing better and better each game. Combine that with Becker playing a tighter bench down the stretch I think that's why he played less. Maybe he was banged up a bit, unsure.

Net/net Drew finished out he season as the 4th big man behind Lamb/Henson/Payen.

He should have a good opportunity to compete for the type of minutes Payen had next season, though I'm sure Dingba will be battling for those as well.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

It's always fun to see a thread about next season for the entire league devolve into a thread about Vermont recruiting and not what SBU has coming back, how UMBC improves in a new arena, if Maine will continue to drag the league down, if UA's sophomores and players that were out for the season improve enough to dethrone VT. What UML will look like in their first tourney eligible season.

Re: Looking ahead for 2017-18

Lets talk about whose graduating and what the projected starting 5 will look like next year for each team.

Vermont loses and prediction of starting five.

Graduating:
Wills
Steidl
Payen

Starting 5:
TBH
Lamb
Henson
Duncan
Hearlihy (not confident with this projection but I like his size as a Steidl replacement)

First off bench:
Drew
Cam

The majority of posts are by UVM fans; that would explain the preponderance of posts about Vermont. There is nothing stopping UA, SBU, UNH, UMBC, UML, Bing, Maine, or Hartford fans from discussing their teams. I'd be interested in learning more about other teams along the lines you mentioned.

OK, knowing that, I don't think I'm sticking my neck out too far to predict that Lamb will be a three time POY.
