Wow, Delaware was absolutely terrible at basketball. They're usually pretty stout at football from what I recall right?

I'd love to see Doumbia slide in at the 3 spot but he'll likely need some development before that happens.
The 3 Guard line-up leaves with Thornwell. Thornwell has the ability to play point guard on Offense or go inside with the trees, rebound like a Forward, and defend any position on the court outside of really large Centers.

I would guess Holden and Dozier, backed up by Felder and Beatty/Gravatt. With Blanton chipping in some minutes as needed,

Doumbia and Keita (if he can do more on Offense) could be the #3 candidates. Tut in deep reserve. Haase has the perimeter offensive skills and can rebound, just not sure that he has the quickness to defend small forwards on Defense. Maybe let Silva/Keita/Doumbia defend the smaller guys and let Haase defend the Power Forwards? We'll see.

But we have too many talented inside players to only use two at a time.

If Dozier is a first round pick, he's gone.

Which means we are definitely a two guard/inside-oriented team.

But I think Dozier stays one more year. He will be the lead dog without Sin, it will improve his draft status to lottery pick (lots more $), and it cements his (and his family's) legacy at the University.

Wishful thinking IMO. Sending a sophomore to the 1st round is good for our program too. It shows we don't limit our athletes. Dozier seems to benefit from his youth and height more than his actual game. I'd advise him to go now if he's projected in 1st round. If he's borderline, then definitely stay and improve that jumpshot.

If he leaves, we most likely will have an average year next year. It will be impossible to replace him and Sid in one off-season. I think the 2018/19 year should be a good one.

Maybe he's on pace to graduate if he stays one more year. Hard to pass down a 1rst round pick, tho.

This is why i'm enjoying what we are doing this year. I'll let the coaches worry about what happens when our season is finished.

Definitely could not blame him if he left. I do think he would benefit from another year to round his game out and add a little size.

His jump shot could still use a lot of work. Very inconsistent at times.

I agree though, if he's projected first round I'd take the steve spurrier approach - risk getting injured or having a bad year next year, or go ahead and take the money/opportunity available.

I'd love to not lose the only 2 reliable pieces to our offense though.

Dozier isn't going in the first round unless he fixes his shot
