I'm going with a three guard line-up...it all starts on the perimeter
G-Thompson G-Lucas G-Hunt PF-Andela C-Tucker
I hate to say it, but I agree with you. Bigs don't matter no more. Hell, on D, I would play a 2-1-2 one foot in the paint zone and see if their shooters can hit the 15 to trey and beat me. I feel pretty good about that because everybody is into "athletes" now instead of shooters and players. Hell, against a zone, no one moves the ball, hit the seams, run the baseline. It is all about individual skills and penetrating and ain't no one going to penetrate my one foot in the paint zone. Hell, I wouldn't even challenge their point guard 20 feet from the basket. Just let him stand outside pounding the ball wasting the shot clock.

You just described WT defense. Then a lot of people on here are saying how unlucky we are because every team has their best 3 point game of year against us. And I don't know what game your watching the game is guard oriented long range shooting playing the outside in game.

This will be a tough one to read for sure, other than it will be Thompson's team. It doesn't look good on paper given the returning contributions, but I expect some big jumps from the guards, and lots of good competition there.
Bigs look concerning for sure, particularly for getting any scoring. If Andela can be a demon on the boards, the mix could work. We sure will miss Wilson leaving, could use his 4 points/2 board/0.2 block average he had at Idaho last year (/sarcasm, if not obvious)
I didn't see Johnson mentioned - 6'7" SG, so hoping he's able to make some significant contributions and provide more length.
