If they can all remain eligible to start the season next year, and as long as we can find a spark plug off of the bench, that lineup could net us 15-18 wins next season. Olatayo is an efficient scorer that could avg. about 18 ppg, and I would expect Ongwae to give us 15 ppg. If Williams can get us 10 ppg and 8 rpg, we will be set to make a serious run at the division crown.

don't get me wrong, this is potentially a better starting line up, but Hansberry will probably not be the point.  heck he ain't running the point now, RJ Mcray, and Kozuta are running the point.  Hansberry is probably the 3rd point on the team. 

RJ and Hansberry are not pure PG, they are combo guards.  Kozuta or the new kid Nick Coppolla probably have a better chance to play PG.  From what I could see Coppolla looks to be better than Kozuta did in High school.

So, are you saying that Hansberry will come off of the bench or he will be a small SG for us?

Probably so if that is the starting lineup.. Right now Coach Richard starting lineup is Amos/Trent, Hansberry, RJ, Jayon, and M.Brown.  And RJ is the point.

Yes Hansberry can play point, but when RJ goes out, Kozuta comes in at Point.  Hansberry is basically the 3rd PG on the team.  Given the fact he can't beat RJ or Kozuta out at PG,I assume he want next yr either, because both RJ and Kozuta come back next yr.  As well as incoming PG Coppolla.

This is just my assumption, who knows.  Coach Richard is known to mix and match lineups, and Hansberry may fit well at PG with the new players.  But if I had to guess based on the player rotation today, I would assume Hansberry will not be the first choice at PG next yr.

I will challenge your statement,if you look at Hansberry right now,he has changed his play.If coach Cooper keep leaning on him and he is doing that,Hansberry will be the starter next year. If any point guard,no matter what his size,if he don't play with his eyes,they will fail.The reason any point guard for ULM this year,will not look good and the main reason,where is the starting point?

If history teaches us anything,look back over the years and see the starting point....It's the post and ULM has no post player to pound it into.I know for me, it was always the calming effect if i could throw it in there,it would set the offense when it gets ragged.

Re: 2013-2014 Starting 5 


I love the thought of having a big man center, and I hope this guy can really push himself around.  As for PG, we need a QB--who can run the offense--and get his share of points while he's at it.  Apparently, we will have alot of guys to choose from at PG.  Can one of them play QB?
Which side of history will you be on?

You may be right, who knows, he may fit in better with a new cast of players.

Right,it's a proven plan time and time again,you don't need ten stars to Win.If you have two players that can score the points,the third man is called on to run the second team and 5 good role players.That's a team with a chance to win some games,on the other hand,would it be good to have two deep players at each position............SURE!!!

Re: 2013-2014 Starting 5 


If a point guard doesn't have a 6'7 forward that he can alley oop or a 6'8 to 6'9 post-up guy that he can consistently bounce pass inside and get some results, that makes it very hard for a point guard to  

have a great game, that decreases his assists and when the offense becomes discombobulated that increases his chances of turning the ball over. And I think that has been

the problem with Hansberry at the point. Although in my opinion, he looks pretty comfortable on the wing (16 points, 4 steals in the South Alabama game). But, if coach can put some talented big men around this kid, I think we can see some good results from him at the point guard position.

We are 3 & 13.  We have won  more games thus far than we won last year, so that is an  improvement I guess.    At this rate of improvement we should be up to double figure wins by the time Obama is innagurated for his 9th term.   I have stayed off the board because so many of  you get offended, but sanctions, acts of God, wars, famine, academics, self imposed handcuffs to be worn during games aside: we are bad.   This isn't working and hasn't worked . 

Meanwhile Tech is frigging 17-3.  At least they didn't go to a Bowl game.  Thats the ONLY thing I can throw at the Tech idiots.  When does baseball start ?

Remember this is the first year in 3 that we could sign kids. Btw the others before the probation left the school. Richard is doing well with what he has. 2more years to see real progress by a good team. We are also still on probation. You just. Don't get it about no scholarships for 2 years.

on top of that, we still have limited practices, and limited games.  By the time ULM had played 2-3 games Teams had already had 6-7 games under the belt. 

That made a huge difference at first, but now its just plain and simple, we don't have the horses to compete.
