Assuming Justin Miller is not available at the start of the season, I'm thinking we'll see something along the line of the following:

PG Davis
SG Maxwell
SF Isiana
PF Brandon
C Nguidjol

Rotation includes: Calipari, Rose, & Moore

Thanks titandave for starting this line of thinking,

I think that unless Marquis Moore has regressed from his level of performance in the final 10 games of last season, he will be a starter. This would be the case whether or not Miller is eligible.

i like moore. he's a good player.
In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

I won't be surprised to see Moore as well as Brandon in the starting line up.

NC State's Dereon Seabron, a freshman guard rated as the No. 129 player in the country and the Virginia high school 4A player of the year in 2017-18, is academically ineligible to play this season. NC State learned today that the NCAA had denied the appeal of his disqualification.

Two other Wolfpack players, senior guard Markell Johnson and junior forward DJ Funderburk, also missed NCSU's loss to Georgia Tech last night. The coach is hopeful they will be back soon. (I am hopeful they are back sometime after this weekend.)

This will be the true test of loyalty to see if NC Titan wears RED for this game?!

Huh? You're calling my loyalty into question?

Bought a brand new red Detroit sweatshirt at Homecoming. And a new red Titans tee shirt. Not to mention that I will be accompanied by my son who will also be in a red Titans tee shirt.

BTW, the Titan players will be in blue.

Wow! Not an unexpected result and no one can say that Coach is giving us a schedule of cupcakes. Brutal early schedule with Gonzaga during the HL season. Who knows? Maybe this is the way to build a team. If it doesn't destroy the Titans' confidence it could make us stronger down the stretch. I like Mike.

The game was frustrating. Titan shots were not dropping. The 3-point percentage was like 20%, and the gods were even not with us at the foul line.

Positive points:

AD scored 28 points despite his long-range shots and his free throws not falling.
Detroit Mercy out-rebounded NC State.
Boe looked about a thousand times better than last year.
Brandon had some high-light reel moments, but needed more consistency. Sometimes he disappeared. Awesome potential.
Miller scored nine points even though he never really looked comfortable.
Calipari, Rose and Gorman all got into the game, so sometimes the Titans went with three walk-ons on the court: AD and Rose and Calipari or AD and Gorman and Calipari.

On the other hand, very few assists and way too many turnovers. Not saying the Titans could have won, but a few bounces the other way and they would have been in it. NC State played man defense all game. Pink stayed behind with a concussion, and Maxwell has a cast on his right wrist.

On to Clemson!! We'll see what happens next week with a pressure game under their belt.

We have warriors on the boards. We need another outside shooter to step up. We got most of the shots we wanted; but did not convert them. This team, right now. is much better than any game we played last year. NC State ran 4 different guys at Antoine. Generally, he found the open man. We had some early trouble with the press because the guys were not recognizing it.

Also, we were tight in the first half because it was our first game. So, there is room for much improvement. But the foundation is there.

FYI. Davis got the T for saying, "That was a terrible call, ref." One guy behind me in the crowd yelled to the ref, "if your skin is that thin, it's going to be a long season for you, ref."

Oh. And nctitan wore red.

fyi, NCTitan: I think you are still referring to AD as a walk-on but in fact, he asked his dad for a scholarship this year, and he is indeed on scholarship now.

Our 3 point accuracy was lacking as we went 5 for 25. AD 2-10, Willy 1-5 ,and Brad 0-4. I am optimistic that we will shot 40% + at Clemson. FT 12-20 should also improve.
