How huge will it be now that Casey Prather is back?

He was very solid up until the time he went down. He's another solid defender and his scoring was coming along. What say you?

Depends on how many minutes he can go... If he is indeed back that's one more player on the floor that the other teams have to worry about

Last year, loved the energy Will Yeugette brought when he got on the court. I'm seeing the same thing this year when Prather hits the court. A whole new dynamic.

Of course it will be huge. We are only playing w/ 7 legit players (the others are coming in during extreme mop-up duty). Having an 8th player significantly increased our depth. Frazier is doing well, for a freshman. But I imagine Donovan wants Prather's experience back on the court.

This team has been amazing...especially defensively. And Prather has proven to be very good defensively. This only makes the lineup stronger.

Looking forward to tonights matchup.

HUGE. Our bigs will have fresh legs as we enter March with the improved rotation. Plus, I think it will (indirectly) give Billy more confidence to sprinkle in more minutes for the freshmen, too... Frazier, in particular.

Prather also shoots high-% FGs :

1) Overall FG% = 66.7%

2) 3pt% = 40%

3) 2pt% = 70%

4) FT% = 88.9%

5) In 14.4 minutes/game Prather gives
a) 6.4 points/g
b) 3.2 rebounds/g

Theoretically: Double his playing time gives 28.8 minutes, 12.8 pts.
(that's even with our leading scorers), 6.4 rebounds. Prather is a
sure-solid player.

As an aside, freshman M. Frazier is doing fine offensively but fouls
them too easily.

Conclusion: a very good team growing excellent = Final 4 ....
.... of course, in basketball, we'll have to shut down that opposing
player, Murphy Law.
