STEP THREE: Get Big Men Involved in Offense
The Washington Huskies may not have a height advantage, but the team has incredible upside talent with Matisse Thybulle, Noah Dickerson, Sam Timmins, and Devenir Duruisseau. In fact, after Markelle Fultz’s injury, it was the big men who stepped up and contributed a larger share of the offense.
The team has added point guard Michael Carter III and point guard Nate Pryor to the 2017 roster. 6-foot-1 Pryor will compete for point guard duties, which should restore guard David Crisp to his more natural shooting guard role.
The wild card in the 2017 season is how the team will make use of Michael Carter III. He has the skill sets of a point guard but that height of 6-foot-5 truly makes him a ripe prospect for the front court. If he makes the switch, the ball movement on the Huskies team can truly be sensational.
Now, place Pryor and Carter onto the floor with David Crisp, Matisse Thybulle, and Noah Dickerson and you’ve got something.
But this Washington Huskies team needs more. They will have it if they can unleash the power of full roster. Both Carlos Johnson and Sam Timmins have the potential to be solid basketball players. Their offense could mean the difference maker to a surprisingly successful season.
