Eventually, they'll have numbers assigned to the newcomers.

Most athletic player roster ever. In past Dogs had 2-3 players that were athletically talented but the team RT has recruited exceeds those teams. Got to translate talent to wins this season.

Loaded roster of guards and forwards.  Guerrero really improved towards the end of the year and Owootoah is a good backup.  Lewis and Harris are top-notch shooting guards.  Lewis will likely start, but there isn't much of a dropoff with Harris.  Taylor is an intriguing player, just wonder where he'll fit in.  Watson is a budding star at forward and Bailey sounds like he's not far behind.  More athletic but not quite as good of a shooter.  CRT has the flexibility to play Lewis and Harris together as well as wings.

My biggest concern is the post and depth at the post.  I assume the starting 5 will be Guerrero, Lewis, Watson, Davis, and Anderson.  My biggest concern is Davis and Anderson rebounding and playing defense in the post against teams that have height with skill.  Plus, the backups in Edo, Carter, and Artison bring diverse skill to the post but aren't finished products or lack intangibles to guard the post.  Edo is pretty good as a 4, but can't guard a legit center.  Carter may have the same issue at 6'8 with average athleticism, and Artison lacks the bulk.  I wouldn't be surprised to see Guerrero, Lewis, Harris, and Watson on the court at the same time depending on the matchups.  Rebounding and post defense would be a big concern, like we saw with Siena.

My projected depth chart...

PG - Guerrero 6'1, Owootoah 5'11
SG - Lewis 6'3, Harris 6'4, Taylor 6'3
SF - Watson 6'7, Bailey 6'6
PF - Davis 6'9, Edo 6'6, Artison 6'9
PF/C - Anderson 6'9, Carter 6'8

NC Dog I pretty much agree with everything you said. I think Taylor will fill the role that Huddleston played of combo guard. CRT has told me that he gets to the rim better than anyone he's had in the program to date & can finish. That adds another dimension to the team we haven't really had since Chris Herren. He could really take his man off the dribble and finish with a layup.
I'm interested in seeing how much Ohwatoowa has improved, Taylor may cut into his playing time
I saw Carter this week on campus, he's a man real big broad shouldered young man. We haven't had a physical speciman like him before. He may be just 6-8" but he's a wide body for real.

I would agree 1Insider I thought NCDog did a good job but as you said I expect Taylor to play some at PG.
I guess the only other thing is IMO Edo did a great job as a true Fr. last year and I expect big things from him this year.

Please know that this isn't a bash on Artison because I am immensely glad he signed with the Dogs.  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.

maybe if he avg 12-13 boards a game some of the bigger blue blood schools would have come calling flushed

Our overall rebounding as a team improved last season as the season progressed. 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.

Not the most athletic roster ever but 


Certainly the most athletic roster outside of a Tark coached team...this could be the year we make the dance.

Winfred Walton was a big presence too...doesn't always translate to success.

I don't anticipate Carter helping much until December. By then he should have some OOC games under his belt, and ready to spell Anderson in a manner which will be helpful.

To me...Watson is the X Factor...if he can build on an outstanding freshman year, and bump those 10 points a game average to 15+ that's going to be huge.

Someone should tell the administrator on that website to correct Braeden Anderson's hometown to Okotoks, Alberta. Currently, it's listed as "Alberta, Canada."

Alberta is a province, not a city.

Roster update again all players have numbers listed. Also, some weight changes to several players. Looks like Paul Watson has gotten up to 197 lbs. 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.

Can you say, "Brandon Webster"?  "Winfred Walton"?  Or "the chubby white guy who transferred here from Oklahoma State during Cleve's tenure?"   Last guy was pushing 3 bills.  Can't remember his name.
