“At least one thing stands out when evaluating Kansas University’s possible starting lineup of 5-foot-11 Naadir Tharpe, 6-5 Wayne Selden, 6-8 Andrew Wiggins, 6-8 Perry Ellis and 6-9 Tarik Black: it’s one, fairly tall unit — sure to provide matchup problems for opposing coaches.”

Thanks for the link to the article. Reading it reminded me that I still like the writers at KUsports and the coverage they provide, even the opinion posts. Wish they hadn’t screwed up the comments so badly.

The one thing they don’t talk about in that article is the potential for a super big lineup. That lineup wouldn’t be used all the time, but they could legitimately play a group like
Selden - PG, 6-5 White III - SG, 6-6 Wiggins - SF, 6-8 Lucas - PF, 6-10 (or Ellis, 6-9) Embiid - C, 7-0
That’s NBA size or better at every spot. There are maybe 2 teams in the whole country that can match that type of size and talent.
