The Sophs (Kuhlman and Frederking) are going to have to produce from the wing and from beyond the arc in a big way. They are either all going to develop quickly this year or it's going to be tough to watch.
Shea Feehan will be a deep threat and a vocal leader at the PG spot.
Marty Hill (a relatively unknown commodity for us Aces fans) will have to show off both his range on his jump shot as well as the ability to create off the dribble.
KJ Riley will be a wild card. I assume he will play the SF spot and try to be a slasher type of player and hopefully show the ability to post up because we know he is not confident in his jump shot (maybe he is now since these coaches will not discourage him from shooting).
John Hall will show significant improvements within this system and could become a force at the PF spot.
Dainius Chatkevicius will give minutes at the 5, rebound, score a little but has a tendency to get into foul trouble.
A lot of this year will depend on the 3 point shooters. If we can hit 45%, or more, of our 3 pointers, as a team, we will be in a lot of games. If we hit 30% of them, then it will be ugly. I'm not looking for many 45% games. Hope I'm wrong.
