This team has a chance to be very good. Stephenson is a freshman and should continue to improve. Cashmere Wright is basically a freshman coming off a year-long layoff and should improve. Gates is only a sophomore. And in early December the 'Cats get Ibrahima Thomas on to the court. What happened to Sean Kilpatrick? Is he hurt? Is he redshirting?
I think both Wright and Stephenson will probably do more penetrating as the season progresses. I am encouraged so far.
