You think that Syracuse is 50-50 with Akok? Greater? Less than?

Think about this for a moment.

This is assuming we get Guerrier (which I really believe we will).

Even losing Tyus Battle, Frank Howard, Oshae Brissett and Pascual Chukwu, four legit starters, we'd be projected to have...

Guard
Boeheim
Carey
Goodine
Washington

Forward
Hughes
Guerrier
Dolezaj
Braswell

Center
Sidibe
Bol Ajak

That's a formidable starting lineup, even without Akok, Girard or another big guy. Could be a fun next few years if all plays out according to plan.

Really? I don't think that's formidable at all. It's solid, but probably middle of the pack ACC. Hopefully Hughes is that dude, but the rest just seem like solid role players. Guerrier could be nice, but he will only be a Freshman, so not sure how much he could dominate off the bat.

Goodine, Hughes, Carey and Guerrier are all legit. Dolezaj will be a third year starter, Sidibe is a potential 10 ppg option at center that we haven't seen in a bit. And Buddy can space the floor.

Will it be a step back from the previous year? Probably -- but that group can win games, even without Akok or Girard.

That’s a team that will need to eat its Wheaties.

Not Carrigan? I thought he would fit the roster perfectly

Hopefully the open spots get filled. Preferably with Akok and Dimon/Qudus.

Solid group, agree NOT amazing and not top 3-4 in ACC , BUT i would tell you Carey is major upgrade to Frank.
All depends on Carey, Goodine, Quincy

I agree. That is an excellent supporting cast - like the 2002 Syracuse recruits - but they need an alpha dog scorer and one more big man to turn this group into an outstanding team overall that can actually contend.
