Silva made drastic improvement from last year to this year with his shooting, no reason to think he can't continue to improve and extend his range to make some threes. He will need to do that in the pros. With his quickness and explosion, he would be a nightmare match-up - if you come out to cover him, he can do the blow-by and dunk in a couple of steps. I am not saying that we want him living at the three point line, but that would be a nice wrinkle.

Kotsar does not have a great stroke but should develop a nice jumper from the foul line in. You started to see that at the end of the season. Keita has the reputation of being a good player on the perimeter, just did not see it this year due to the wrist. Haase and Doumbia come in as much better shooters than Kotsar or Silva as Freshmen.

The big guys will be much more of a focus for next year's team. We will have one of the deepest groups around - but still very young with room for major improvement, especially with the seven footers.

I like Kotsar a lot. He had a very nice year for a freshman. He's just going to get better and better.

With Maik and Silva, we will have one of the better starting front courts in the country next year. I still don't know what kind of potential Keita and KG have. If they don't transfer, we will know more about that next season. We will have a lot of depth in the post next year.

Ok Nostradamus... They both have the capability to develop that talent. Whether or not they do is up to the coaches.

Silva is not very coordinated in my opinion. That is what causes him to foul more than anything.

I think Kotsar has an ok stroke, but I also think he was rushing shots and was not comfortable in traffic. Think that will improve as he seasons.


Silva has a really good stroke.

I would not count on Haase or Doumbia coming in with a green light to shoot threes.

It has always been my personal belief that Silva loves to play aggressively and has trouble holding back. I think he wants to challenge on every play and has trouble making split-second decisions -- and thus he will attack even if he is at a great disadvantage.

This team just went to the freaking final 4....How can you even consider quesioning the system?! Not only did it go to the final four, it did it with two underclassmen in the middle. Both of which played a huge role in the tourney run....so im going with yes.
