From the Chandler Jacobs highlight reel that someone here posted, I agree that Jacobs is a starter. That most likely means Thistlewood becomes a 6th man. Both Thistlewood and Kendle Moore have been starters since their freshman year, so if somebody can take a starting spot from one of them, but that says that Jacobs is a player, and may be the shot in the arm we need.
I expect Moors to get better at the 5 spot, too. We will be a better team than last year, but the whole league is on the rise.
We will have more consistency than anybody else out there, so we oughta be able to have a good start. But, as that article points out, there are a lot of teams that look pretty good on paper, too, so the conference battle should be a good one.
If it sounds like I'm looking forward to basketball, I am.
