We need a legitimate BIG. Utah state proves it. I believe the rest of our team makeup is somewhat similar. Good shooters that arent athletically superior. JJ not quite as good as Merrill but could get consistently better looks with a good big man inside. Do not believe Utah State has a player that compares to Alston. USUs point guard and Marcus are similar as well. Neither are great ball handlers or assist makers but both are streaky scorers. I believe Marcus is better on d. Also believe a good big would help Hobbs as the defense would not be able to sag on Hobbs when he drives. Our defense would be 100 percent better with a shot blocker. Right now our gaurds get beat, other team gets a layup or we have to fly around and get out of position.
