Obviously MY and BW have different philosophies regarding big men. Need to

be big AND talented for both. There is 1 big that MY brought in that does not appear to meet that criteria but we needed bodies and did not have many options this late in the game. MY requires the use of 2 bigs to primarily protect the rim, rebound, pick up loose change around the bucket and 3 guards that can nail the 3 when the bigs kick it out. MY now only has 1 player that meets that criteria and he is a skinny but talented freshman. I do not count Nolley or Horne as bigs. BW generally ran with 1 big (6-9 or bigger). However, it will be interesting to see what he deploys at TAM with different personnel. The gurus can do the deep dive into both philosophies. It also will be interesting to see how My reacts in terms of his coaching philosophy to generally being able to get better recruits in the future than he could at Wofford.

I think this team will make the CBI and could do well there depending on who they draw. A Wva draw or like might not be good. NIT would be a really big surprise. Much more likely for 2020
