The boyz are back. And Da Youngstas are younger than ever.
This team is gonna be a challenge for Cal early in the season, but the benefits reaped if they listen, than we're gonna be elite.
This team has legit depth of 10 players and more length than any squad ever. Cal has even embraced the four letter word.... "ZONE".
Wenyen Gabriel: Our best holdover from last year's squad. 6'9. Long arms. And can shoot. If his motor is going, he'll put up numbers and be effective.
Sacha Killeya-Jones: 6'11, still coming into his own. Moves well. Has a great touch. He just has to be tough and he'll thrive. Play big. I look for him to surprise a lot of people this year.
Tai Wynard: I love Tai. Wish he saw more time. We need guys that can push other guys around in the paint. And he's active on the glass.
Hamidou Diallo: Redshirt Freshman. Might be one of the best athletes I've seen in a UK uniform. If young Vince dunking power was a 10. He's like a solid 8. It's like he hates the rim. His shot is coming along too.
Kevin Knox: impressive athlete. Great size. Good shot. It'll improve. But he loves contact. You can tell he played football growing up.
Jared Vanderbilt: 6'9, reminds me of Lamar Odom. Slick with the ball in his hands. He has some injury concerns, but when he gets back he'll be a problem.
PJ Washington: I love PJ. He's an asshole and he's tough. Long wingspan, but undersized for a traditional 4. He's a hardhat type of player.
Nick Richard: the big rudeboy. I didn't realize he could be this effective on offense. Seems like he's improving by leaps and bounds and the season just started.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: He's so good. He does everything well. He looks like he might end up being one of the better guards in Cal's tenure at UK. I doubt he comes back for Year 2.d
Quade Green: Love Quade. He's tough as shit. And can shoot from range and has a floater. He needs to step up on Defense and be that stopper Briscoe and Tyler were.
Jemarl Baker: I haven't seen him at all. But word is he can shoot.
When this team clicks at the right time toward the end of the season, they can definitely make a run for a title. And that's what I expect.

I'm sadly pretty ignorant to most of the rest of their discography, aside from "Pass the Mic," "Hip-Hop Ride," and "Bloodshed and War" with Mobb Deep. Probably need to start digging through their stuff.

Need a confident Wenyen from the first game to the last.
Sacha needs consistent minutes.
Knox is damn good.
I will say though....outside of Knox, our squad has some iffy looking form on their jump shots. Hitches (Diallo), low release-points (SGA), etc. Quade's jumper reminds me of Teague. Just need them to go in, I guess.
We're for sure gonna take our lumps early, hell maybe even later on, but I always like our chances in March.
Oh and the Herro commitment earlier today was tight. Guess our last shot at a big-time recruit is Zion after Barrett decided to play alongside Reddish (scary). Hope we reel him in and REALLY hope that he adjusts quickly to the college game.
