re: Way to Early LSU Basketball '13-14 Season Predictions


My best guess

100% confidence in starting are:
Hickey
JOB

Besides that I have 75% confidence:
Stringer


And then about 60% confidence:
Martin
Odo

30% confidence:
Mickey
Morgan

Coach Jones has been working with Odo since January and has full control of his off season workouts. Odo knows what he needs to do for LSU and I think he gets the post spot opposite JOB.

That makes me feel like the most obvious starting lineup is:

Hickey
Stringer
Martin
JOB
Odo

I still like Mickey at the 3 and Martin at 4 backing up JOB, but we will want to have our best players on the court. It may depend on who's talent best fits into the system Jones is trying to run.

It's also very possible for Morgan to start at the 3 spot.

Beginning of year I tend to agree. Maybe JOB at 5, Martin at 4, and Mickey at 3.

BUT I think by years end Quarterman, Mickey, Martin, JOB, and Odo will be getting serious minutes.

That's 11 guys on the team. 7 with experience and 4 super talents who are going to come in and play right away.

If Morgan, Collins and Hammink have a good summer and hit the weights and improve in the offseason, then there's no weak link on this team, and no reason why we couldn't sub 5 at a time if we wanted to.

I'm a huge Quarterman fan. The dude is fun to watch.

It's fun to discuss starting lineups, but I think LSU will play so many people for extended minutes that it doesn't matter.

Me too. He can really create on offense and score. That is something Hickey isn't the best at. Hickey plays good D though.


WHAT AN AWESOME PROBLEM TO HAVE.

This team is going to rock.

This will be the first team since the Final 4 team with 2 McDonald's All Americans and 6 top 150 recruits on the same roster. One of the top PG's in the SEC.

2010 Class Andre Stringer #107, Shavon Coleman #127
2011 Class Johnny O'Bryant # 46
2012 Class Jarell Martin #12, Jordan Mickey #41, Tim Quartermann #66

2 McDonald's All Americans Johnny O'Bryant 2011 & Jarell Martin 2013

To go alone one of the top PG's in the SEC, Anthony Hickey.

Next season will be fun

Seriously. LSU basketball has more hype surrounding it in fricking APRIL than I've ever seen before.

If he takes this crew to Europe to play over the summer, and hosts a midnight madness, then I'd say he will have done a damn near perfect job in promoting the program and creating buzz for the team.

I think we win 13 conference games. Not sure about non-conference because I don't know the whole schedule.
