FWIW, ND just landed Robby Carmody, a 6'4'' SG out of PA.  They already have Prentice Hubb, a 6'2'' combo guard out of Maryland.


I had heard ND was fading with Luther.  I really think it is SJU with possibly Ohio St as a darkhorse.

It's close between who is a better PG right now between Ponds and Lovett. What's not debatable is that Ponds is a much better player at the 2 than Lovett. Therefore the decision to give Lovett the majority of the minutes at the PG spot seems like an easy one to me.

Also, I'm baffled how people can have such strong, definitive opinions on a guy like Simon who hasn't played in over a year and who most have not seen any more than a couple minutes of his Freshman year at 'Zona and maybe a couple YouTube highlight videos.

I completely agree with your first paragraph. As for the second, I find the persistent Simon PG talk annoying and quite obviously incorrect.  We have two capable if not awesome PGs who are just six feet tall. Even if Simon is just as good as the pair, he's 6'5 210! We were absolutely eaten alive by bigger guards and SFs that could handle  last year.  Why on Earth would he play anywhere but SF for the overwhelming majority of his minutes with Ponds figuring to play 33-34 mpg and Lovett around 30? His handle and passing will be welcome at the three and he will be asked to lead the offense at times to get the Lovett and Ponds jump shots since they are much better shooters.

Simon (or anybody else) playing PG on the offensive end doesn't necessarily mean he will have to guard the other team's PG, and it would be unlikely the other team's PG would guard him if our smaller guards are on the floor at the same time. Simon can run the offense and guard the other team's best wing player if need be

It's not his defense that is the issue. It wouldn't surprise me if he is the best PG defender. He does not have any experience running a half court offense at this level. He doesn't have the handle to do that for long periods of time. He is very raw in the half court.
