Losing in the first round is brutal, sucks balls, etc. But so goes the tournament and a 1 loss elimination format. Same thing that makes it great, makes it suck when you are the higher seed that falls early. Expectations are the mother of disappointment.
Anyways, what do we look like next year. Starting 5?
C Horford / Morgan / McGary?
SF Robinson / Smot
PF Smot / McGary / Morgan?
Obviously this latest recruiting class gives Beilein a lot more depth and flexibility....We may actually be able to "go small" now as a strategy or change of pace instead of it being the defining characteristic or our team. What does our starting 5 look like though? Will Beilein stay small to start the year or will he throw out the big bodies. I know he loves bigs that can shoot the 3, so I see Smot getting a lot of minutes. The only positions that seem set in stone are Burke at the point and Hardaway at the shooting guard.
