The way Whaley has been playing D and ripping rebounds, Uconn has no problems with him at the 5. Big upgrade over Cobb , who couldn't guard a chair on high ball screens/pick and rolls. Also I'll post their line-up but Uconn may have to go way smaller in game one vs. Buffalo. They play an extreme small ball line-up.UConn won that game against Florida on the defensive end. They really need to start playing better offensive basketball and the Charleston Classic is an opportunity for that to happen especially with Bouknight now in the mix. Having more depth helps. It would still have been nice to also have Springs because Carlton is the only legit 5 on that roster and he is sooner or later going to have serious foul trouble necessitating Whaley or Akok to play the 5. Which is not what you want.
