Just don’t see Devo averaging double figures, but I hope you’re right.

Moody averaged 16.8 as a freshman. I’m guessing you underestimated Smith’s average.

Your guess is as good as any. Nick is an obvious pick as a big scorer. I think one of the transfers is going to surprise us with some higher than expected scoring. Could be the Missouri transfer.

10 for Council and 5 for Everyone Else seems too high.

I’m not sure about the 81 ppg guess. We scored 76 last year with less talent and no 3-point shooting to speak of, but not sure where our deep shooting will come from this year either. But the 2021 average was 81 with 33% from deep so :man_shrugging:

I don’t see anything but names up there. Where are y’all seeing the points averages?

15 next to Nick, etc.

Really good first stab at PPG. Obviously injuries could change everything, but hopefully not this season. Using your 81 points, I’d probably change like this:

15 - Nick Smith Jr - 19
12 - J Graham - 10
10 - Devo - 8
10 - Council IV - 8
8 - A Black - 8
8 - J Walsh - 10
8 - T Brazile - 10
5 - Ford (instead of M&M) - 5
5 - Everyone Else - 3

This team scoring 81 ppg depends a lot on Black being the PG we are hoping for. He will need to average 6-8 assists in SEC play for that to happen. Nick’s averaging 19 will also depend on that.

I think Brazile could be the break-out player for us, especially without JWill returning. We may need that to be the team we hope for.

It’s 2022; We now read right to left.

In Arabic, Persian and other similar languages, they read right to left. Maybe that is the collateral damage of the two Iraq wars.

I don’t get the Jalen Graham love. He hasn’t ever averaged 10 pts per game. And now he transfers to a team that’s way better and stacked with scorers and y’all really think he’s going to have a career best season and be second leading scorer on a national championship contender with a top two recruiting class??

I tend to agree dogen, I do think Brazile will improve

He averaged 9.9 last season, and in conference got up to 12, which was No. 2 on the team. I don’t know about him being the second-leading scorer next season, but being surrounded by talented teammates who are willing facilitators can raise your level of play and make you a better player on either end. I like Graham a lot.
