    However, he still needs to execute this and gel with his teammates. Count me as excited!
    I'm excited too. I wondered that about him but I think we have a whole team of guys that are unselfish, talented and high effort type guys. Going to be an exciting year where we can be underdogs again!

    I think 3 is probably his Natural position... but he could play the 4. He's big enough, especially in the Summit. (I mean, we had Telly play the 4 for 3 years)

    It will depend on how the team evolves... you know if Matt D, and Allou D, are progressing well, and Wilson can hold down the 4, he'll probably be the 3 more.

    But he could be the 4 as well.

    I don't get too caught up in which player will be playing which position on the floor. Even the NBA will adjust their lineups during a game to make the opponents react to them. Most mid-majors and smaller don't have the luxury of having many athletic players that are 6'10" or taller.

    There will be times we go with a big lineup and times where you will see a fast moving/deep shooting lineup that will have four guards on the floor. Heck, even when I play pickup ball in town I find myself guarding bigs because I'm not nearly as quick as I was 25 years ago and I'm a 6' point guard. With good fundamentals, most guards with any length can guard a 4. The exceptions are trying to guard a Daum who can shoot over you from well beyond the arc.

    Yessir.

    I'm curious as to what/where Owen King will play this year. With the Return of Brandon Key, and the Redshirting of Matt Mims done... we have 2 PG's that pretty much play the #1.

    Last year, Owen backed up Tevin mostly... played a little bit of wing, but not much. The few little video segments the MBB account have put out did show Mims running the point, so I wonder if Owen will play primarily wing?
    -He can do both, and I'm not saying it's bad, or good or anything... just wondering how it's going to look. I guess I'm just ready for the season!

    I think you hit it spot on. Plus I get the impression, Wingett is a slightly taller and more athletic version of Telly. He & Wilson will give this team a lot of versatility in being able to play Big and Small Lineups. Non-Con schedule is tough and could start out rough but by Mid-December, I believe we'll see a very compelling team.
