Not trying to beat up on Woody here. It would be like beating a dead horse, kid has taken some heat lately. Adam brings a lot to this team in regards to his defense and ability to beat other big men down the court and may pass better than any other big man on the roster. However, it seems to me at times that we could be more effective offensively say if Mel was running in the 5 spot. He's better with his back to the basket then woody. Would we suffer defensively with Adam coming off the bench?
Here me out on this! I have said this for the last four years. I think the reason Iowa struggles behind the arch is not only because the lack of jump shooters, but because of no inside out game. Having that guy posting on the block who requires double team opens up so much of the offense. Adam is not a guy that draws double teams and not sure Mel would either. But even if a double team doesn't happen, a pass to the post draws the defense closer to the lane. Adding Jared to the starting lineup seems it would add more fire power to our offense and have that one more guy you have to account for defensively and give us more of a post threat.
1) Mike 2) Marble 3) Uhtoff 4) White 5) Basabe
Pro's, Con's of this lineup?
Who am I to question whats been working? But this lineup just makes more sense to me.
