I consider Slanina Ohams and Havsa all essentially new comers. Slanina because of injuries and getting used to the game. Ohams and Havsa barely played until the end of the year, their development makes them essentially new players. Not directed at you but the idea we are going to recruit our way to the top is Pecora think. We need to develop our way to the top and add pieces around these guys to fill gaps especially on offense.
Dayton and VCU have 4 seniors each graduating. You don't easily replace those guys both teams are more vulnerable than they have ever been and we have a better foundation than we have had in many years. Don't be surprised if Wade and Miller leave for P5 schools this year but even if they stay they have their work cut out for them.
Could not agree more with the recruiting. We have to build a program and you do that by developing players.
Also agree on Dayton and VCU. They might struggle either way, but if they lose their coaches things will get rocky.
Not sure I agree on Ohams and Havsa, they were freshmen and part of the group we need to improve. Half agree on Slanina since he played so little due to different injuries.
