I’d be irritated if we took smallwood off of scholarship, he isn’t the best player in the world, but he loves UAB and seems like a great teammate.
I hope Hurtado doesn’t go anywhere. I still have high hopes for him.
This will be Scootie’s Team the next three years. Hopefully he knows that and isn’t looking to play anywhere else.

I don’t see Lavender staying, and i sure don’t see MCCoy on schcolarship again.

Lavender is 100% leaving after the season.

Hurtado was redshirted and isn't going anywhere.

Sullivan isn't going anywhere.

Like you said this is Scootie's team going forward. I'd expect this starting 5 next season:

Norton
Bryant
Gueye
Sullivan
Darling

Off the bench: Boyce, Jude, etc., etc.

Currently they are trying to fill two spots for next season. Obviously a juco big is the high priority. A grad transfer is possible too.

I hope this JUCO big to be named later is a starter next year and not Gueye. Based on what I've seen, he isn't anywhere near ready for that.
Gueye is certainly not reluctant to shoot the three. Fourteen of his twenty eight field goal attempts this season have been three point attempts. I haven't seen him attempt to fake the shot and drive to the basket. I also thought he would be more effective at rebounding than he has shown to be, so far.

Take away the first 2 he made the first game, he is shooting 16.7% from 3 the rest of the year. But, Id imagine he hits a lot in practice or they would not have him to shooting it so much. At least I hope not.


Take away the last 3-4 games for Norton and where was he?

RE: Jude Akabueze
He’s 15-28 in the last five games, including the two toughest games on our schedule to date. I don’t know what your issue is with Norton, but it’s a bit bizarre. You do realize there is a huge difference between practice and actually going out in a game and playing, right? It takes most guys a few games to get back into the groove. Norton is a vital part of this team, and we needed him to get back in form for conference play.

Lol we will see.


My point was u can't live in fantasy land taking away games to prove a shooting percentage. That's for ESPN and analytics guys. Btw way Norton was shooting in the upper 20's up til now hurt or not.

Well, UAB is in C-USA play now so all that experimentation time is over and the show is now "on the road". We will all see sooner rather than later if we have the players we need in the right places at the right times. By the time of "March Madness" we will all know answers rather than guesses.
