From the "what I believe based on what I know" department...

At center, Morrison over Iti? Hmmm... interesting. Of course, I'm not sure Iti isn't more of a PF prospect when considering NBA and D-League prospects. I've also got half a thought that Morrison could end up in Boise... just waiting for the guy to have some offense in his hands (if possible, a very debatable notion, which is why I wonder about that placement on the list). Meanwhile, why don't I remember Passos?

At PF, Matt Nelson... I want to see if he grows composure. I've questioned his brains, but he seemed to be on the WAC all-academic team, so he just "sounds" dumb, I guess. Too bad, because there's something to his game that's sweet... and other things I think he could develop.

Justin Hawkins v Reggie Larry... that's a good one. Two years ago, Reggie Larry (who, BTW, IS rather less than intelligent in class) was an interesting and seemingly undersized lad with some serious physicality. Good hops, good strength, keep him away from the free throw line. This season, out of thin air, the man develops a jumper (with RANGE, no less), heart, etc. An enjoyable transformation. I just wonder if he's really 6'7". I know Hawkins is smooth, I kind of question the order, but there's quite the debate... and I hope you all get to see Larry this year.

(...and that's an interesting dichotomy for me. Matt Nelson, apparently smart kid, sometimes dumb as rocks on the floor, while teammate Reggie Larry was almost the complete opposite. 'Twas fun to watch, sometimes in a sick sort of way.)

Hmmm, Bryce Taylor. It's been years since I've been able to use one of my favorite terms... STREAK SHOOTER. That's Bryce. If he gives a damn (he can defend), he'll make the show.

Derrick Low is my "are you sure he's really a point" whine for this year. I'm probably 50-50 on these observations. He CAN ball, make no doubt.

Reggie Larry just left a team in Cyprus because the would not play him at PF.
He is headed back to Boise to play for the Idaho Stampede.
