After much discussion of the upcoming season, the scrimmage has given me the following impressions:
DeJuan Blair deserves to start at center. He already looks more athletic than Aaron Gray.
Levance Fields has lost a lot of weight. He looks faster and more muscular.
Sam Young seems to be in tune already. I believe he will step up this year.
Brad Wannamaker looks to be a good upgrade, or at least an even replacement, for Antonio Graves.
Gilbert Brown stole the show. I had believed his role on this team was somewhat debatable, but his game today showed that he does deserve the hype people have built around him. Although there appears to be a surplus of guards/forwards, I think he should get a fair amount of time, if nothing else but to prepare him for next year.
Let’s get ready for the big UPJ showdown.
