But since NoCalDog initiated discussion concerning our rebounding woes, I was somewhat surprised to see on the updated bios that Artison, at 6'-8", collected only 6.5 boards/game as a high school senior. Hell, we had a 6'-3" guard (TJ) collect more than that at the D-I level. I think Artison may well be just what the Dogs need in other phases of the game (including as rim protector -- I read somewhere that he is an excellent shot eraser), but the jury is certainly out concerning whether he will rebound enough to solve the Dogs' rebounding woes. Some shot erasers at the D-I level, like our own Melvin Ely, can block shots without leaving their feet and hence maintain good rebounding position. Shot erasers who leave their feet alot can quite often take themselves out of good rebounding position. This may help explain Artison's numbers. If in high school, he also fancied himself a perimeter threat on offense, it could also have hurt his O-board productivity. But one thing is for sure: his high school rebounding numbers were pretty bad for a 6'-8" guy, and however he approached the game in high school needs to be fixed if he is to become a contributor on the boards at the D-I level.

I think our guards will once again be a huge factor in our rebounding we have some strong, muscular, athletic guards who are all active. We all know Marvelle can rebound, but I also think you'll be seeing Julien Lewis, and possibly Darnell Taylor rebounding well. Even Cezar Guererro was looking to rebound towards the end of the season last year he recorded 10 in the win against UTEP. Although, rebounding is important a more critical need in my opinion is interior defense if we would of had better interior defensive play in the Mountain west Tournament I think we would have gotten a lot further. None of the Mountain West teams have any dominant bigs returning although some newcomers might surprise. The addition of a healthy Braeden Anderson and newcomer Terrel Carter will make it more difficult for teams to fight for position down on the block. Also, with Alex Davis playing the 4 the weak side defense should be a lot better as well.On a side note, Isaiah Bailey has been assigned number 24 let the Paul George comparisons begin.

Terrel Carter is listed as 265 after previously listed as 250 I hope that's muscle gains. Blake Williams is no longer listed I wonder if will have some new walk-on's. www.gobulldogs.com/sports/m-ba...baskbl-mtt.html
