He has all the tools to dominate in the CAA.

Let's not get carried away here. I personally think he could be a very solid player, but Dominate means like CaCock level, lets not get carried away!

Agreed. I more than hope that's the case, but those types of descriptions aren't warranted yet.

RE: How important is defending the three?
82Hawk, I appreciate the detailed summary. I'm curious how we're rebounding this season, and whether or not there is a correlation with recent improvement.

I can tell you that Cacok leads the nation in total rebounds and rebounds per game while averaging just 28 minutes a game.

RE: How important is defending the three?
I don't expect to ever have another player that will compare to Cacok. In McGrath's 18 years experience at Kansas and Carolina, he couldn't compare anyone to him. That doesn't say he's the best that's ever played here, but it's his type of skill level that's so unique. Elmore will never be that kind of player. But, if he was improving as much as McGrath was saying, he would have been instrumental in shoring up strength and size down low. And the one thing he has that Cacok doesn't, is the ability to step outside and score from even three point range.

Keatts always compared him to Kenneth Faried. Which is about as close as you can get. Stats and size are very similar.

If i'm not mistaken , Faried had a more polished offensive game. But i could be wrong

Probably the best on-court accomplishment of the Buzz Peterson era was beating Faried's Morehead State squad in 2010.

16 points 13 Rebounds and 4 personal fouls for Faried. Sounds familiar

Trevor DeLoach with a double-double (17/14) in that one off the bench.
