"Lonergan says possible starting lineup today: McDonald or Bynes 1, Garino 2, Armwood 3, smith 4, Larsen 5"
Can't always read too much into positions in basketball, especially at mid-major level and this is subject to change obviously. And also the term "starter" doesn't always mean the most minutes, etc. etc. Isn't worth hyperventiling about but a few interesting things:
-Only question being McDonald or Bynes at PG. Expected it would come down to the two of them, will be one thing to watch going forward.
-Garino at the 2 when he is generally talked about as being more of a 3 and even was guarding bigs when he played in HS. Also because it means both Kromah and Savage are coming off the bench.
-Armwood at the 3, been lead to believe he was more of a PF inside guy. But I guess it stands to reason as he is listed on the roster at 192 pounds (35 pounds lighter than Smith who is three inches shorter!)
-If McDonald starts at 1, this means the team will be starting three freshman. Have to think Pellom would probably take Larsen's spot if healthy though.
