John Crosby will not be the starting point guard next yer. Period. Darrell Davis will play no substantial minutes at PG next year. Period.

I wouldn't be so sure. Who is going to take his spot?

Are there any available Freshman PG (not named McKinley Wright) ready to start day 1?

A transfer has to sit.

That only leaves a graduate transfer as a solution. It's the best solution. It's a solution I like very much. But ask yourself - what grad-transfer PGs are available and what happens if we strike out on those guys?

I'll tell you what happens. Crosby starts.

I think you're batty if you think DD will play a lot of PG, or, I will not be watching much UD basketball next year. DD is not a serviceable PG, he is not a backup PG, he is a terrible PG (much like he is a terrible center--it's just not who he is and that's OK).

Trey? Maybe Sam Miller could play some spot time at the PG too. I mean, he can shoot, so he must be a PG.

I think right at this moment he is the leading candidate and very well may be your starting PG for the whole season.

I hope you are right. Would love to see us grab a Grad transfer PG (for 2017) and a freshman PG (for 2018).

Do you guys understand how a hypothetical works? If I ask who is going to play PG if we don't land someone else, your answer can't be "we'll find somebody else."

I also believe this. Now, he may split 60/40 with a newbie, but IMO Crosby will start.

Understand perfectly. Are you Crosby's Dad or AAU coach or something? He's the only PG on the team currently. Of course he starts as of right now. Thats a pointless debate. What im trying to tell you is AG wont let that happen. AG WILL, not MIGHT, WILL bring in a grad transfer or JUCO to play the bulk of the PG minutes.

If Crosby is our PG next year we are so past screwed its not funny

I Respectfully Disagree

Crosby is the heir apparent to replace Scoochie Smith. What short memories we fans have. Who can forget the anti-London Warren posters and what an improved London Warren we saw
as a Junior. Give the players a chance to develop and do not prematurely label them as failures
before the Program has received a fair return on the investment in their talent.

He's no Scoochie. But he's better than you are giving him credit for.

I don't care if Crosby starts or not, so long as A: He is greatly improved AND B: we have an alternative in case he doesn't. Bring in someone who can start right away, Grad xfer or JUCO, and let them fight it out for starter. If Crosby wins, that's awesome. If the other guy wins, then that's awesome. Either way, we have a PG worthy of starting and another guy who can come off the bench and provide more than just a blow for the starter.

Florida won a lot this year with a point guard that made Crosby look like John Stockton. AG can redefine JC's job description to assist his development. He can work on JC's finish at the rim just like Scoochie retooled his drive after way too many misses in the lane as a Frosh and Soph.

Crosby or no Crosby, I still think we are looking at 16 to 18 wins next season. Relax my friend BRob !

I was one of JC biggest critics, but he looked good at the end of this past season. I have no worries about him being the starter this coming season, but need someone to spell him when needed. Could see some RM in this role.

I have already said this, but I don't accept next year as a down year. If AM were still here, I would have a reasonable expectation of making the NCAAT. I do not think AG should get a pass for next year because of bitterness over AM leaving and blaming AM's departure/what some perceive as a empty cupboard, for a down year.

I will have to find the page, but verbalcommits.com still lists UD as having a top 2 or top 3 roster star average for the A10. A top 2 or 3 roster star average should mean that UD can compete for an at-large bid next year.

AM made the NIT in his first year despite losing Henton and Gibson and having Gavrilovich as his only incoming and eligible player.

I agree. I think if we take a year or too step back, that won't help anything. It won't help getting into a better conference, it won't help keep the fans happy, it won't help making the tournament easier, etc. We need to hold at least as close to status quo as possible. Yes, it will be difficult, and maybe we won't achieve it, but that should absolutely be the goal. Acceptance of anything less as a goal should be unacceptable, even if we fall a bit short.

If Dayton starts a D1 football program next year maybe a selling point for the football recruits is that they can get playing time on the basketball team too if we only have 8 guys on scholarship.

Realistically, this conversation is a little premature, but if you want to have it, I would suggest that a walkon might be the backup PG before DD and definitely (with 0 doubt in my mind) before Trey.

Dayton already has a D1 football program. Dayton does not have a FBS football program.

Dayton has a D3 (no scholarships) football program that plays in the FCS/I-AA where the schools that actually compete nationally can give up to 63 scholarships. You can technically call UD a D1 football team but in reality they aren't.

Well they did make the playoffs 2 seasons ago and actually played pretty well in the game. Granted they probably won't ever get past the second round, but for the most part but they still compete even without scholarships and have beat teams that have the full 63 scholarships.

I know they got in a couple years ago. I even watched some of it on ESPN3. I also know that San Diego actually won a game this year and then proceeded to get hammered by NDSU in the 2nd game. I simply don't see calling a team that offers no scholarships an actual FCS team.

You can call them anything you want. The NCAA calls them a D1 program.

If Crosby is our PG next year we are so past screwed its not funny
I agree! I believe all pt. guards should be able to shoot 80% from the free throw line and have a great assist to t/o margin. Crosby, even though he is the heir apparent, will probably never achieve the above two lofty standards. I believe we had one coming in with McKinley Wright (and we still might if IU cannot make room). I do not think it is fair to compare Crosby to Scoochie. Scoochie was 77% from the free throw line but he was money at the end of close games (probably 85% to 90%). I don't think Crosby can ever get there! Others on this thread have stated that a better comparison would be with London Warren. Crosby was 44% (12 for 27) from the free throw line in this his sophomore season. Warren was 51% (35 for 68) as a soph, 61% (45 for73) as a jr and 71% (38 for 49) as a sr. I would be surprised if John Crosby got to 71% by his senior year.

Anthony Grant WILL go find a JUCO or grad transfer that will be able to shoot 80% from the line! He played for UD about ten years earlier but GW had a little 5'4" pt guard from 1996-99 that shot 90% by the name of Shawnta Rogers and whenever GW had any sort of lead towards the end of a game the ball would always be in his hands! Opponents would have to foul him and he would go to the line and make it every time!

If UD football isn't D1, neither are any of the IVY League basketball and football teams.

If they played a full 10 game schedule against those teams, they'd be lucky to finish .500. It is not a level playing field.

Based upon the below, isn't it reasonable to believe that a top 3 or top 4 finish is possible and/or is to be expected?

When the A10 is ranked, according to the average number of stars of the players on the roster, UD is currently ranked #3.

This might still include the departing seniors in the average.
