We HAVE to play zone now

With the losses we are enduring as a basketball program I really hope CBG doesn't try to go man to man and force it next season with this team. IMHO we are going to have to play a lot of 3-4 guard lineups. TJ, Tadric, MGH, Truck, Josh Heath, and probably Wamer are all going to play a lot of minutes. This is similar to some of the Villanova teams of the early-mid 00's when Jay Wright played guard heavy lineups around a single big man. CBG likes in-your-face man but we are going to have to play a lot of guards and/or guards with QS. We no longer have the big bodies and the rim protectors of the past seasons. You cant play QS at the 3 with Lammers and Sampson because then who gives them a blow? Gueye? Doubtful, especially the first year.

Quinton Stephens becomes the key to GT winning double digit games next year IMHO. He is going to have to really help to protect the rim and rebound. CBG needs to get him good looks at the foul line which is his knock down shot.

At this point Im not even worried about making any kind of post season or having a winning ACC record. Those ships sailed out of town with Golden, Holsey, Miller, Poole x2 and BBC.
