Doo is our best player by a wide margin. Zero chance he isn't starting regardless of who else is.

I know Iíll get roasted. But pile on.
If this happens to be the case, I would much rather Doolittle guard the other team's 3 when on defense rather than Manek. I'm more comfortable with Manek in the post or baseline as opposed to the wing on defense.

Is there any chance we learn to play more zone this year......??? Or at least more than we did last year??

We were very good defensively last year, and did mix in more zone as the season went on. But with more athleticism this year, more zone may not be likely.

Reaves is close.

I heard Kur looks great going up and down the court. We will have to see where his skill level is. He and Manek are bigger and stronger.

If Doo and Manek start at forwards Doo will guard the quicker of the opponents.

Yeah I regretted leaving Reaves off as soon as I posted this. Those two will both definitely start.

Great to hear about Kur. As you say, if his skill is even average, with his athletic ability, he will really help us.

I love Reaves and think Manek is very good with the potential to take a big step. I just LOVE Doo's game. As an overall player (defense, ball handling, versatility), I felt he was easily our best player by the end of the year. I'd love it if other guys play well enough to close the gap!

I agree with that. Doo was clearly our best player.

Competitive practice will make us better!

Doolittle needs to understand his strengths and stick to them. Too many times he drove to the basket and ended up getting his shot blocked. His offensive strength is 8 feet and out.

How long will it take for Harmon to be in the conversation of "best player".

Hopefully after the first exhibition game.
We need Harmon/Bienemy/Reaves to be our best players to get back to the top of the conference.
If Manek/Doolittle continue to claim that title, it will be another long season.

The lack of respect/appreciation for Doo is just astounding. He does basically everything well, some things extremely well, yet so many act as if he is a fourth or fifth option on a "good" team.

Just to confirm earlier posts.
Victor is in the ou.edu directory.

That usually means that all his grades/test score/transcript stuff is completely clear.
At least, it has for football.

If you want to play the hyperbole game. Some people act like we're loaded with all-conference players, compete for conference championships, and the program is right where it should be.

But the fact is, Doolittle is playing out of position as an undersized post player who isn't terribly athletic. He scored 8 pts and 5 rebs against Virginia. If that's our best player, we're in for a long season.

I agree some of these comments are head scratching like Doo didnít work some very good teams over. Obviously though if Doo is the 2nd or 3rd option that means your team is going to be very good.

Main issue with Doo always having to be the 1st option is that when he plays an athletic taller 5 heís going to struggle. If heís not the main option he can pick his spots more then become the main option when OU plays less athletic 5s.

Always good to point to one game to support your argument. But I guess if we're going down that road, he is likely a first team All American based on his game against KU.

He was clearly outmatched by Diakite. AKA the starting 5 on last year's national championship team. That's a fair statement in arguing that our ceiling is the Final 4. Beyond that, not much else.

Doo is outmatched by Centers.......BECAUSE HE'S NOT A CENTER! It's amazing that this is still a point of argument. He had a great game angainst KU, he was our best player last year, we were not remotely competitive against the National Champion in round 2.

If Doo is our best player this year it's because we find a center who can play meaningful minutes and allow Doo to play his natural SF/PF position. And he has players around him who can make plays. Plain and simple. When we were successful last year it was when players other than Doo & Manek were making plays. The games Odomes stepped up, the spurts when James played well and the end of the year when Bieniemy started playing well.

I like the makeup of this team more than last years.

Doo > Doo
Manek > Manek
Reaves > Freeman
Harmon > James
Kuath > McNeace
Bieniemy > Calixte/Reynolds
Iwuakor = Odomes

Doo was extremely good down the stretch. He will be even better this year.
