    Projected Starters

    Ike Iroegbu - Combo guard who may be forced to run point if the frosh aren't ready.
    Que Johnson - Sophomore who struggled with injuries last year and still was 3rd on team in scoring.
    DaVonte Lacy - Potential All-Pac-12 player who may lead the conference in scoring.
    Junior Longrus - A solid defender who can do everything but score.
    Jordan Railey - The 7 foot senior will be expected to improve upon his 3 ppg & 2.5 rpg.

    If the Cougars end up in a half court slow down, it's going to be ugly. They have some great wings on the roster, but a lot of questions at the point guard and center positions. Ernie Kent wants his team to run, run and run some more. If they can get any production from the 1 & 5 positions, they may surprise a few people this year. Personally I loved the hire of Kent for the Cougars because it got him off of my TV. I have my questions about him (despite the fact he turned Oregon around previously), but you have to give Wazzu credit for going for the brave hire.

    Agreed. Not sure how high the ceiling is or how long they can sustain their "peak", whenever and whatever that may be. Dude isn't Tony Bennett.
