Pure speculation, but I think that Hawkins may have been squeezed out by Osa as they are similar players, but feel free to substitute in Javonte Brown-Ferguson for him, and party on.

Marques Johnson claims he and Nelson coined the phrase during the 1984 playoffs, when due to injuries, Marques ran the offense from his forward position.
Del Harris was an assistant to Nelson when Pressey was playing.
Harris said he called Pressey a point forward after he had originally used the term with the Rockets for Rick Barry and Robert Reid in the early 80's.

Though, he really played more like a point forward.  He was all over the place.  Great rebounder as he averaged 7.6 rpg for his collegiate seasons.  Was at the SLC F4 in ‘79 for the Magic/Bird/Aguirre fest.  Magic was beyond just a PG.  He even played center in the playoffs for the Lakers

I'm not a big fan of the silly semantic arguments, but ...

Magic is regarded by most as the greatest PG ever.

Just because he was tall and he could rebound and play D against bigger guys -- and even play center in one of the most memorable NBA Finals performances ever -- doesn't mean he wasn't a guard on offense.

Those who can't tell the difference between the way Magic played PG and the way Pressey, Pippen and Bird played point forward ... come on!

Agreed MU82. Magic was a true point guard. Perhaps it was because back then positions were more clearly defined, but I've never thought of or heard anyone refer to Magic as anything but a point guard. (and I'm well aware of him playing center in the finals)

Most of those rebounds and inside hoops in college were not from the PG position (he could not shoot outside in college).  He really. was the first point forward, just did not have the nomenclature then.

And complement Theo, with the ability to stretch the defense and defend multiple positions. The biggest question mark might be on the boards. We'll be losing two stud rebounders in Ed and Jayce. That's where Garcia would really help.

From Rivals........question...." which player outside the top 75 is undervalued?"

McDonald: I believe I've used him before in another roundtable, but I'm going Osasere Ighodaro, who committed to Marquette on Thursday. I love the upside that he possesses. He's 6-foot-9 with great length and athleticism and you can see the skill level coming along every time he steps on the court. With some added strength and good weight when he gets to college, he has a really bright future and will outplay his current ranking.

I finally broke down and got a digital subscription, mostly for the Journal Sentinel's MU coverage. Hard to beat the price; it's far less than what you'd pay for the physical paper 10 years ago.

I think it's more likely Elliott stays around at least one more year.  He could be positioned to grad transfer in 2 years.  Burning a year of eligibility to sit out makes little sense.

He'd also be in higher demand as a grad transfer, IMO.

Makes sense.

If I were an athlete (or an athlete's parent), I would not love being recruited over. But it's life, and every athlete knows it's a possibility. I'd hate to see Cain and Elliott go because they seem like great kids, and they provide a lot of energy and intangibles when they are healthy and on their games, and it would be great to have that kind of depth. But I wouldn't blame them if they left, and I'd wish them well.

Unsure. I'm sure Bailey will start, I'm sure Koby will. If we get Mane, it's very hard to believe a person penciled as a second rounder wouldn't get the nod over Greg or Symir (or dexter). Cains been awesome so far but inconsistent, and I could definitely see him taking a back seat to Garcia if Garcia adapts into the college speed quickly.

Future 1st round pick Nassir Little didn't start a collegiate game and averaged less than 20 mpg.  NBA drafts on potential, starting in college is a "what can you do for me now" business.

I know what the statistics and our numbers regarding transfers are, but Jr Jamal has been behind Soph BB all year, and there haven't been any rumors about him going anywhere.  When healthy GE is either 1st or 2nd off the bench (depending on how fast Theo picks up his first 2 fouls).  Writing them off as future transfers is foolish, especially when one of the players "running them off" is still an undecided recruit.

Cain will be a senior next year, he is going to nowhere unless he leaves this summer, he is a nice backup but that is all I see.  Elliott has been hurt so much it is hard
to figure him out right now, I see him getting a chance to start next year but it will not be easy if Mane is that good.

I don't think there's an "or" option there. I expect Greg & Jamal to stick together whatever they do. Considering Jamal wasn't even one of the transfer rumors this year before the Hausers left, I think he'll finish his career here, and as others have mentioned, Greg makes more sense to grad transfer.

Either way, if one stays, I think both stay.

Wojo has started freshmen when they are clearly better than the more seasoned player.  Markus Howard started over Duane Wilson.  Joey Hauser started over Jamal last year.

At best Jamal Cain has been inconsistent since he has arrived at MU.  Elliott has been injury prone and doesn't exactly light it up offensively.  Having Garcia and Mane start over them is not outside the realm of possibilities by any stretch. 

Hell, I can even see Justin Lewis backing up Garcia and Cain backing up Bailey.

Future All-American over someone who wasn't the coach's recruit and a red-shirt Freshman over a Sophomore is different than a pair of Freshman over a Senior and a red-shirt Junior.

I'm delighted that Garcia is on-board, and a really hope we get Mane, but this kind of over-hyping of players that 1.) aren't even on campus yet, and 2.) may not even go here, usually leads to disappointment.  Garcia and Mane have combined to play 0 collegiate minutes, personally I'd rather set my expectations low (no matter how highly their currently ranked) and be pleasantly surprised, rather then state that they will "start and play max minutes" and be disappointed.  I would hope I don't have to remind people of the last time a Freshman stretch 4 started and played big minutes.

Not to mention the hole in the argument that Joey was a "redshirt" freshman.  Sure, he technically was.  But it was what was supposed to be his freshman year, and would've been his freshman year had he not decided to rehab his ankle at MU for a semester rather than in Stephens Point.

Nothing Elliott or Cain have done has shown us they are more than bench guys (which are important players to have).

Playing more minutes doesn't necessarily make you a better player.

It does make you a more experienced player though, which many times is more important.  I'm not disputing straight up who has more talent, just pointing out that (everywhere not just at MU) new players have an acclimatization period.  Remember when everyone was writing off Jayce back in November, and now he is having  a significant impact.

I certainly don't think everyone was writing him off.  I know I personally expected him to be our best big, but when he injured his knee I thought it'd take a month or two for him to get fully back into the swing of things, especially being a new player and still getting comfortable in his role.  It took him a few weeks, that's for sure.

Koby, Symir & Elliott are enough PG depth.

I won't predict who will start -- especially if one of the subjects we're all talkin' about is a guy who might never step foot on the Marquette campus again. Plus, who starts isn't all that important.

I fully expect Garcia to get plenty of minutes next season, as will Mane if he joins our Warriors. If Lewis is as tough as advertised, we have a need for that, too. I mean, even Cain averaged 17 mpg as a freshman, and Joey averaged 29, so it's not crazy to think Wojo will give these highly regarded athletes 20 or more.

Or they play 2,3,4 and Theo/Grad Tx/Bailey cover the 5.  Though to the original question, I'd say possible, but not very probable.  And if it does happen, it's either VERY good for MU, or in trash time as an experiment.

I certainly don't think everyone was writing him off.  I know I personally expected him to be our best big

You might not have written him off, but our fanbase in general has a tendency to be overly critical of players new to our system in November, and then end up looking a bit foolish when they end up being critical cogs later in the season (Jayce, Katin, Carlino, Lockett).

Again, love out incoming class, and would love it even more if Mane decides to come, I just think it would be wise to incorporate them slowly, rather than immediately expecting big things.  It's no coincidence that the two schools that are known for playing the most and best Freshman both have "buy game" losses in November.  The freshman wall is also a real thing, and Joey hitting it definitely contributed to our collapse last year.  An argument can be made that any other scholarship player playing down the stretch of Creighton and we win that game and the conference.

Koby, Symir & Elliott are enough PG depth.

Don’t forget about Dexter. He’ll be a redshirt freshman.
