Two players should receive significant increases in playing time this season.
The 6'8" sophomore wing was expected to crack into the rotation last season, but only saw action in fifteen games behind more experienced players. Big and athletic, Nash should add a dimension that has been lacking since Russell Carter graduated.
Scott redshirted last season and has four years of eligibility remaining. He used the year off to beef up significantly. A twig at 6'7", 198 pounds last year, Scott now weighs 215 and is more in the mold of Ty Nash. More athletic than Nash, he will also help with penetration from the wing.
I am very excited to see how these guys contribute this season. We really missed Carter's ability to break down the defense last year. Tory Jackson has that ability, but lacks the height and strength to finish. In some looks at practice, Scott has shown off some great dunks and the capability to play above the rim.
