4 of our top 5 scorers are returning with Boum, Kennedy, JB and Agnew who averaged 42 pts a game combined. Is it reasonable that they increase that to 50 pts a game while adding others like Sibley and Satterfield to the scoring mix. I think our bigs can give us 10-15 pts a night as well......Hopefully.

Our main concern will be playing defense, replacing rebounds and playing rim defense. If we can do that I think the scoring will come.

We will certainly have a better idea by the end of December.

Mostly I just lurk and comment occasionally when I have something to add. I spend most of my time at the Den.

It was definitely a back-handed compliment at best Fili, and I apologize. I enjoy your posts. It is true that I disagree with most of your conclusions, but you are a positive contributor. There are lots of trolls here and you aren't one of them. You have opinions and the courage of your convictions.

As I said, I agree with you. I think that part of our offensive problems was forcing it to BW who wasn't putting 100% into every game. If Golding is the coach I think he is, he will find ways to put his players in position to be successful. Tarke could have been a solid contributor. So could Sjolund. I think we will see other guys do more than we realized they could.

He has been around for a while, I think he is a Kyyotes den reg…None of us really know where the scoring is going to come from, let’s see what Golding can do with a team. Maybe he will use them towards their strengths, and abilities. That’s coaching. They have a good variety of players, let’s hope they come together early on.

From what I hear, the players love playing for coach golding and it is night and day from Terry. They will run a more complicated offense. The future looks very promising and feelings from within the program are that it is just a matter of when not if the team breaks through big time. It may not happen this year, but they will be very competitive with the guys that are back. The new offense should suit Verhooven better. Everyone within the program loves coach Golding and this should be a fun team to watch. He is not the recruiter that Terry was and that is apparent by the amount of recruiting battles they lost, but the players love to play for him and the offensive and defensive system they are implementing will give them a chance to win more than Terry`s teams. Expect big things from Bienamy.

It is more about the energy, enthusiasm, making the game fun, being able to be yourself, etc. Which is the complete opposite of what the returning players were used to.
