It has never been more obvious than this year that our starting back court will be Frank and Tyus. But what about Carey? Admittedly I've been watching some film and reading various scouting reports but this kid may need to play. The film doesn't show a lot of dishing but plenty of driving penetration. He's a scorer which despite all of our returnees we must acknowledge that scoring was one of our weaknesses last year. Sometimes a guard will come in and just fit. Could we see some 3 guard or even a lot of 3 guard lineups? I don;t think either Frank or Tyus would mind giving a up a little ball handling responsibility as long as they stay on the court. Defensively either could slide down against most teams as long as Oshae and one of the other 3 tall guys was in. I read in one article that he wants to wear #"0" because he thinks that is how many guys will be able to guard him! I initially thought Carey's minutes might be limited with Tyus's return but maybe not. Fewer obviously but I think he ends up with 15-20 (as long as he can also play defense of course).
