After seeing numerous line-up threads one thing I have found a bit humorous is that ISU fans are not used to having a full roster of players to choose a lineup from. It's going to be a real paradigm shift for us to realize that most team usually have a few players on scholly that don't get to play much.
I hope Brackins spends more time working on defense than anything else. With his length and hopefully increasing strength, he could be a force on the defensive end because of his athleticism. If he can improve on defense going into next year as much as he did on offense going into this past year, we are going to be in very good shape.
A real key to next years success is going to be how well Craig and Strap can play together. To me, this really boils down to Craig being able to pass out of the double team. If he continues to improve at this, we might see Craig double his assist total thanks to Gilstap's shooting and slashing abilities.
DG and Lucca have to step up. Both of them looked like all Big 12 players at times last season, yet both had times where they barely looked honorable mention all- retiree league. Lucca has the potential to be Chris Kingsbury reincarnated. IMO, this will be denpendent on how his body holds up. DG's problem is simple, make a layup. The kid can get to the rim at will, yet shoots a poor percentage. That has to improve.
Colvin and Christopherson need to be the real deal. We need Colvin to be a second option to get to the rim from the point. we need Scott to bring a more solid all around game than we saw from Petey or Haluska last season.
