Posted this on another board, so I'll just c&p:
Strengths- Post Play. John Collins and Doral Moore should be be a pretty good duo this year. Outside shooting should also be much improved. The additions of Austin Arians, Keyshawn Woods, along with Freshmen Brandon Childress and Richard Washington should help out here. Chemistry should improve, and the losses of Devin Thomas and Codi Miller-McIntyre should help out in that regard.
Weaknesses- Defense, most notably from the perimeter. Going to list this as a weakness until there are signs that it is going to get better. Hoping, Keyshawn Woods and Brandon Childress take most of Mitchell Wilbekin's minutes. Wilbekin has been a terrible defender during his first two years at Wake.
Impact Player- Bryant Crawford. Averaged close to 14 PPG last year, with 4.4 APG and 1.7 SPG. Shot selection and his TO rate will need to get better.
Breakout Players- John Collins and Doral Moore. Collins is a 6'10 Forward with good to great athleticism, a good face up game and great touch around the basket. Played behind Devin Thomas last year, but was very productive in the minutes that he received. His Per 40 stats were off the charts last year. Had trouble with silly fouls, so will definitely need to improve that aspect of his game.
Moore is a 7'1 C with good athleticism. Very active around the rim, appears to have good touch. Has the tools and the skill set to be a problem inside on both ends of the court for the opposition. He's a potential game changer. Had problem with endurance last year, so hopefully that has improved over the off-season. He started last year as someone that was deemed as a "project", but by the time the year ended, fans were begging Manning for him to start over a guy that was averaging 15.6 PPG and 10.2 RPG.
Record Prediction: 17-14 (7-11). Think Wake will suffer from youthful mistakes this year, but they will be fun to watch. Preparing for a return to the NCAA's in 2018.
I'm going to the Wake/Radford game this Friday. Hoping to see a blowout win for the Deacs.
