Love the Sherron’08 reference. Cam too. Nothing about JCL?

I guess that’s what is both intriguing and exciting about this team. It was almost complete from last year. The missing piece was added and then extra piece on top of extra piece on top of extra piece. And all with experienced players on top of the freshmen class.

It sounds like Dajuan might be the crucial piece in that he is the player that is most turned on in your face defensively. Maybe the question is can Remy and the others follow the example of a non-starter? Or how long does it take for Coach Self to use a Dajuan start as motivation? This team’s ceiling might be more about how good can they become defensively? That’s what made the ‘20 team so good, especially the perimeter transformation of Dok.
