Now that we have the good news that Kam is returning, it appears as MU has a very solid foundation to build off as we head into 2024-25 Season.

Shaka's approach to roster building , primarily through High School Talent,  is definitely playing off. MU will be a seasoned team with experience in Big Games.

Our three Seniors Kam, Stevie and Jop all are positioned to have Excellent Senior Season.

Two Juniors, Chase and Gold have shown continuous improvement , as upper classmen they should have even more game impact.

Another Junior, Jones The Younger, should be ready to go by Conference Season and will provide that defensive spark the team missed in his absence.

Two Sophomore, Zaide and Tre, were able to experience playing in meaningful Big East games and are poised to make the Classic Freshman to Sophomore jump

Another Sophomore, Caedin spent the season practicing against Oso , and that should have him well prepared to assume some rotation minutes. Comments from his teammates indicate he will be ready. We know he is a solid passer and rebounder, which will be helpful when he does get time.

As always , My expectations' for  freshman are limited, generally it seems that one will emerge early in the rotation and a second will get some time toward the end of conference season. So the two Prospects we have coming in should make a modest contribution but it won't be something we have to rely on.

Wild Cards are Al and Transfers. Remains to be seen if Al can make a meaningful jump from non rotation freshman to sophomore. If he can make that move it is a big plus.

Shake and Staff will be looking at Portal Folks. If they can bring in a Seasoned Center that would be a plus and would not impact the roster dynamic much , as Ben could move to 4 and Jop to 3.

Used to think we need a Point Guard Transfer , but with Kam coming back, I feel very comfortable that he can run the offense well. 

Would prefer the Pre- Season Schedule to be more middle of the road, not too weak but not too tough as it would help this squad to get wins under their belt.

Big East is losing a lot of players, but I am confident a lot of quality transfers will come into the League as well . So holding our position toward top of league will be a lot of work, but achievable.

I'm more and more convinced that Herman is just a bot.  The lack of ability to read threads.  The spelling errors, the random capitalization, the weird spacing. 
I'll stick with my opinion on Gold.  He'll be in foul trouble within the first eight minutes.

Starters:
G - Kam and Stevie and Chase
Bigs - Ben and Jop

Reserves:
G - Tre and Zaide and Sean when he returns... with a splash of DO
Bigs - Al, Cade, with a splash of Royce

Honestly, we don't NEED a portal player, but if Shaka finds someone who wants to win and play within the team system I'd be fine with it.  Need someone who buys in though.

Kam is better as a 2 who can catch the pass and pop.  He can play point some time.

100%. Kam at the 2? Bingo. At the 1? sure…if necessary.

No point guard, no center, coach is interviewing with SEC schools, no portal transfers in, our season ended early because all we do is chuck 3s. The sky is falling.

Kam Jones sure seemed pretty good when thrust into the PG role for high leverage games in March with zero advance preparation. I'd maybe bet on continued improvement from the incoming Big East POY contender rather than consistently assume the worst of every player on one of the best teams in Marquette history.

That line up is not awe inspiring. Hope the incoming recruits step up. Otherwise we are mid pack in BEast while Hurley continues to rule.

Mid pack? Not a chance. I would guess around third.
