    Since we do yet have Malik, I won't include him in my line up but obtaining his services would definately change things.

    PG- Butler (He will get this starting spot afer just a few games)
    SG- Stockman (Too much of a scoring threat to not start. + he's a senior)
    SF- Billings (undersized for this spot but he's better than JJ and he plays big)
    PF- Harris (Also undersized but he will cause mismatches to our benefit)

    kinda small but this guard lineup favors OB's coaching style.

    6'2 Butler
    6'1 Stockman
    6'3 Billings
    6'7 Harris
    6'9 Dials

    Not too bad considering the bench we have.

    St. Joe's reaffirms the notion that good guard play makes for championship teams. Hopefully OSU kicks it up a notch next season (as well as the remainder of this season).

    I like the idea of a small lineup Ant, i'm just not sure we'll go that way. I believe Sullinger or Sylvester would be the wings in that situation next year unless they totally get in the dog house again.

    Of course, this all is irrelevant as you say, if we sign another wing.

    You making them even smaller Ant

    Stockman is listed at 6-2, and Ivan Harris at 6-8. Ricardo Billings has bulked up, so I wouldn't call him undersized at almost 6-4. If Butler can run a decent offensive set as the PG, this team will be very good (IMO). When BFC played well last season, they were a much improved team. Butler is key to taking this team back to the NCAA. Go Bucks! MJ

    If Billings is almost 6'4 then so am I. And I'm not. He is 6'2 1/2 at best. If you stand next to him you'll see what I mean.

    You are exactly right.
    Look at the guards that were on O'brians final four team.

    Yeah, but didn't the Buckeyes have a shot-blocking, rebound to the max center and strong forward play then, also?
