the clamoring has been getting loud to slide Emeka to the 5 (where he
belongs) and start one of our rookies Jared Dudley, Jermario Davidson
or 2nd year player Walter Hermann at the 4 and go with a small ball
lineup. If coach Sam Vincent insists on keeping Emeka at the 4,
we could even live with Ryan Hollins in the starting lineup at the 5
and keeping Emeka at the 4. But what we can’t live with is the
absurdity of starting a center that is statistically the worst rebounder at 1.8 per game of everyone at all positions on the 12 man active roster and the worst scorer on the roster at 1.6 points per game.
