    ...for the regular season opener.

    I think Yeguete moved well enough in the exhibition to slip into the starting five. Sorry, Jake. Carter looked a bit more tentative, so I project:

    Hill
    DaVon Walker
    Casey Prather
    Will Yeguete
    Patric Young

    Switch Walker with Carter and I think you nailed it. While Carter didn't play much D, Carter shoots it better than Walker.

    Or in the alternative:
    Hill
    Carter
    Walker
    Prather
    Young

    But you are probably right about Yeguette starting

    I suspect we go with Walker at the two. It might be different in Madison, but he had a decent exhibition game and has played well in practice. Cater is much, much better obviously, but he is still way behind in terms of mobility and needs to play himself into shape.

    I thought a bit about this yesterday. I guess the depth chart in the opener is:

    PG: Hill (20 min), Carter (10 min), Donovan (13 min)
    SG: Graham (25 min), Carter (15 min),
    SF: D.Walker (25 min), Kurtz (15 min)
    PF: Yeguete (13 min), Prather (26 min)
    C: Young (26 min), Yeguete (13 min)

    I don't know which five will start though I suspect Hill, Yeguete and Young will start. But that is distribution of minutes I see. I would see Hill getting more minutes and Donovan Jr. less, but the head coach sadi he felt he left Hill on the floor too many minutes in the exhibition and with a prospect like Hill you don't want to harm his development because of early suspensions.

    I don't think he was refering to the overall min, but instead meant he played to many min without a break.

    Exactly. Point guard is entirely too important to the offense to sit a kid as talented as Hill for extended minutes, nor do I see how heavy minutes will somehow harm his development--especially when Wilbekin is poised to be back soon. The key is him getting sufficient rest at appropriate times. No one wants to see Carter or Donovan Jr. playing five consecutive minutes at the one.

    Hill
    Carter
    Prather
    Yeguete
    Young

    And then later:

    Wilby
    Hill
    Prather
    Finny-Smith
    Young

    Interesting question.

    There really aren't many bodies to throw into that starting lineup, and since Billy Jr is almost sure not to start, as is Graham, that leaves only 7 possibilities.

    If Yeguete feels well enough, he will start.

    Prather, Hill and Young will also surely start, so that leaves only one position to consider, SG. Thus, the question is, will Carter or Walker start the game.

    I think Walker.

    I agree with this for the opener. All I ask is that we see this lineup at least once this year:

    Hill
    Prather
    C. Walker
    P. Young
    D. Harris

    I know C. Walk at the 3 may sound crazy but can you imagine the length and athleticism? or substitute DFS for CP or CW. When we finally have a full (CW) and healthy (half the team) squad we'll have to be considered Top 3 deepest/scariest teams in the country...we could field that lineup and still have Scottie, Carter, D. Walk, Yeguete and one of those 6 on the bench, which would be a starting lineup caliber 5 on its own

    Can't wait!

    That lineup would throw up a bunch of bricks.

    On Friday, I'm thinking/hoping for:

    Hill
    Carter
    Prather
    Yeguete
    Young

    My guess at our 5 best players if we have everyone playing and healthy would be Wilbekin, Carter, Finney-Smith, Chris Walker and Young. No reason that team could not beat every other team in the country.

    What a team!!!!!!! Amazing that they lost at all when all were healthy. Was any team more fun to watch?

    Yep, if C.Walker gets in as expected, Donovan really has the ability to go big for the first time since he could occasionally play a backup big with Horford and Noah. I wonder if he will do that this year?

    I like this line-up minus Prather at the two, I would have Scotty playing there along side Hill. When we substitute, let Carter or whoever is hot with their shooting come in, move SW back to the point to give some rest to Hill. By the end of Dec. we will know what we have from CW, Frazier and the new transfers, hopefully all will be contributing and the Gators will be growing into a great team. With no injuries, this could be a special year.
    WY's knee problems I wish we had the depth now so Billy could rest him for the SEC schedule, but with how the season is rolling out, it could hamper him for the rest of the year. I hope he can get back to the rebounding machine he is without tearing down what has been repaired. Pulling for Will!
