I appreciate your post and agree that this team isn't as "bad" as what many believe, just super inconsistent. The team that showed up last night could be ranked in the Top 10 if we played like that at least 60% of the time...but we don't, so finding consistency is key.
As you stated, losing KBD was a big loss, but I think Andre Wesson has done a decent job and has grown which will help the team going forward. Played a solid 18 minutes last night and hit 2 clutch 3's. I think he and KBD will be a great 1-2 combo next year at the 3/4 spot.
The only thing I disagree with is your "key contributors" next year being All-B1G. I think Beverly and Funderburk will be good next year, but I doubt either will be All-B1G quality straight away, maybe I am wrong. I think your key contributors next year will be Tate, TT(if he stays), KBD, and Jackson. I think Lyle has the ability to contribute big, if he isn't too selfish with the ball. Kam is an enigma, but I think will help a lot. I think Potter, Wesson, K. Wesson, Beverly and Funderburk will all be contributors, but I don't want to rely heavily on them to be the meat of our production. My hope for next year is that we go 10-11 deep on the bench next year. Watching Maryland stay "fresh" all game long because their bench got good minutes makes me hope that we can do the same next year.
But alas, who knows. Lets just finish strong this year and see what 2017-2018 brings when it gets here.
