All-time starting lineup for the Sweet 16 programs

Interesting exercise for a slow day.

His five for Arkansas:
Sidney
Day
Iso Joe
Corliss
Kleine
Coach: Nolan

Who would you put on an Arkansas five (Sid and Day were the guards, Joe the SF, Corliss PF, Kleine at center)?

That UCLA lineup would be all kinds of hell to guard.

To guard or get a rebound. Wilt might have done well.

I think it would be more fun to do it just based on Final Four qualifiers.

I know that’s not where we are right now.

If you are taking Nolan as a coach, I would probably swap Big O for Kleine.

Moncrief
Beck
Thurman/Brewer
Williamson
Miller

I couldn’t do just five. So I picked Thurman with Brewer coming off the bench.

Hard to leave off Todd Day, Lee Mayberry, Joe Kleine, Darrell Walker and Alvin Robertson. That second group I left off might beat the first group sometimes.

I’ll go with the all defensive team built to stop anyone:

Beck - Memphis tough!
Alvin Robertson - Best defender all time at Arkansas.
Walker - Chicago born and bred…is willing to scrap at anytime.
Portis - I’ve said many times…Little Rock dudes are built different.
Gafford - Arguably the most underrated defender ever at Arkansas.

If your going all defensive, you can’t leave off Sidney Moncrief.

I love Sid but maybe I could take Bobby out for him but would lose the height.

Beck, Alvin and Walker…may not matter who the other two are. Those three won’t let you get it to half court.

Darrell walker was fantastic, but that is where I would make the switch. Tough call, though.

A great, stout starting five.

Of course, Alvin might be the shut down guy needed after their hot hand was identified.
