I think Isaiah Wilkins gets some early starts


...to see how he does. Maybe not a starter in every game. Maybe depends on match-ups.

a.) Especially after his weight room transformation, he's a BIG body (if not tall) to set the screens that Mike Young likes in his offense to free up Cone, Nolley, and, if he's developed more of a shot, Bede.
b.) From a pure minutes on floor/points scored ratio I think he was more productive than the more experienced Horne, plus the intangibles of running the floor, picking up steals, rebounds, etc. He's only 6'4" but Chico displayed a b-ball IQ that surprised many last year.
c.) 3-pt threat. Pick and roll...to the arc, baby!

Will be interesting to see who emerges at center.
