I think Bede and Nolley are only sure starters.

See Wilkins as third most likely starter especially early, Cone still a true Fr. Unless, we bring in Grad Transfer; Johnson & Ojiako will split time at C. Who knows what split will be. Johnson has experience, but Ojiako seems to have more physical talent much higher ceiling. Horne will likely get significant minutes at the 4 spot and may also fill in at 5 spot depending on match ups.

These 7 are likely to get bulk of minutes. May get surprise breakout from: Kabongo, Alleyne, or Catnoor, not sure about Radford? Aluma haa to sit.

I'd guess this would be pecking order in terms of minutes:
1) Bede (can play 1 or 2)
2) Nolley (most natural as 2 or 3, but may have to spend some time at 4)
3) Wilkins (a 3 or 2, again may have to man the 4 in a pinch)
4) Cone (1 or 2)
5) Horne (natural but small 4, emergency 5)
6) Johnson (4/5)
7) Ojiako (4/5)
8) Kabongo (2/3)
9) Alleyne (2)
10) Catnoor (2)
11) Radford (?)

So my first game starters are:
1) Bede
2) Nolley
3) Wilkins
4) Horne
5) Johnson

First subsitutions give us:
1) Bede / Catnoor
2) Cone / Alleyne
3) Nolley / Kobongo
4) Wilkins / Horne
5) Ojiako / Johnson
