I'm good - I go to see the band
Losing AJ would suck, but you would just move Miller over to the four. I know he’s not a shot blocker and he’s thinner, but he also brings a pretty good skill set to a 4-out that will help stretch defenses.
If Kier doesn’t come back, the problem of moving Miller over is that your projected lineup is small, even if Kolek beats out Hartwell as the 5th starter on that team — unless Haidara turns into a beast after sitting out a year.
If Kier comes back and AJ leaves, it’s less of an issue. You go XJ, Greene, Kier, Miller, Oduro/Calixte as your starting 5 and then you’ve got a potential depth chart like this:
PF: Miller/Henry (hopefully)/Mar
And there’s an open scholarship if JDS also leaves.
Kenpom: We're a 6 pt underdog at Bonnies.
How are these spreads so small?
No chance we are better next year without a senir laden team.
Meh 6 doesn't seem too unreasonable, Bonnie's aren't exactly scoring machines.
That URI at home though? Yeah someone should have lost their job over that.
Why a hopefully next to Henry?
That he’s not third before Mar for minutes at the 4
Dave Paulsen will still be coach next season. Team will stink next season.

We have a chance to win if, (1) both AJ and Javon are hitting their shots and are aggressive and (2) we get something - anything - from the other guys. And, maybe (3), Paulsen figures out who should be on the court at different points in the game.
Maybe they'll spot us an 15 point lead again? If so, we may have a chance to cover the spread!
I'm sorry, but I just don't see us beating a team that previously spotted us 15 only to come back and beat us by 12. We scored 30 points over the final 34 minutes of that game (only 18 in the second half).
(4) Paulsen quits or is fired before 4 pm
Oduro and Calixte combined for 10 minutes in our first game, that allowed Osun to grab 18 rebounds and get 5 blocks on our guys.
AJ should be able to dominate Winston or Planutis, but only if we play the right matchups.
Not sure what to do about Lofton getting inside on us and/or kicking it out to English and Welch and Vazquez for wide open shots, since we suck at both cutting off the lanes and closing out on shooters, but maybe they'll figure that out.
Ultimately, we just don't have the shooters or the confidence to go into Olean and win this game.
Just hoping we don’t get absolutely embarassed. Miller needs to find his confidence again, Javon needs to score twenty plus and the D keeping Lofton under 15 the only chance we have to win.
vegasinsider: Bonnies now favored by 7, up from opening at 6.
No calixte today, lower leg injury.
Hartwell shook the corona virus.
The camera seems shaky to me
