    If Polk comes back, it seems we have a good backcourt with Walden/Hairston at point and Polk/Burrell at shooting guard. If Polk, is not back, it seems we are thin again at shooting guard with backups.

    Is Walden a CAA level starter or role/7th/8th man player? I know he had a real learning experience this past season.

    I plan to attend some games this season. It was too painful last year.

    Still hearing that Polk might return as a grad student for one more year. Mason may end up going prep. Hasn't qualified yet. So having Polk there might ease the pain some as you'll have some pretty good long range shooters in Marshall, Polk, Walden and Burrell. Mason looked like he was a guy who could create and score but not sure how that would have translated as a freshman, assuming he started with Hairston. Once he goes prep, if he doesn't get grade, you start worrying about leeches getting to him and pushing him elsewhere. Still like the team we have but now in definite need of a big for 2013-14 and beyond aside from Alston.

    Too bad Pressley is leaving, I liked his energy and hustle. It sounds like Alston will be more polished than Pressley was in his freshman year so he'll be an upgrade in talent. Hopefully we can get another big who can redshirt this year and learn from Dixon, Bennimon and the coaching staff. Sucks that Mason may have to go prep - it reminds me of the Amayo situation where he was highly touted recruit but ended up going to Marshall instead.

    Walden can back up both spots. He's more of a combo than a pure point. Guthrie was also brought in to play the 2 though he's not a pure shooter. Sounds like a band-aid for the next 2 years and can really defend and rebound for 6-3. Marquis Marshall can play the 2 and 3.

    Looks like its finally official - or at least published.

    "Joining the Huskies on the sideline next March will be Arkansas-Pine Bluff, California-Riverside, Cal State Bakersfield, Jacksonville State, Mississippi Valley State, North Carolina-Wilmington, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Toledo and Towson."

    Hopefully there is at least some improvement on the court this season and build some excitement for 2013.
