Re: UC Basketball is Coming!
I think the greatest part of this team is going to be their athleticism. They have so many guys who can dunk, and run. I don't expect to see the old press defense quite yet, but we may see it at times in close games.
John Reik is the biggest prospect in Bearcat history. Reik is 7, 2 and a monster. He would be in the NBA right now, except he got hurt. I think this takes away a lot of questions about UC's depth on the inside, especially with a healthy Mike Williams. Steven Toyloy is a great rebounder, and lead JUCO in rebounds as a freshman. I like him off the bench, and would expect to see games with Reik at center, Williams at the 4, and Toyloy at the 4. Certainly without Cashmere Wright, it will be harder to spread the floor, but we do have an All-Big East performer at point guard.
