I read a story on another web site (Bleacher Report) that ranked the starting five on the Maryland basketball team by importance. I didn't read the article but I thought we could bring the concept over here and get everyone's feedback on who you think will be the Terps most important starters this season.
For the starting five, I predict it will be at PG Howard, SG Aronhalt, SF Faust, F Len and F Padgett. Don't think either Padgett or Len will be centers. That will be up to Shaq when he comes of the bench. Why do you think a particular starter is the most important? Is it Howard for his veteran leadership at the point? Is it Faust for his ability to score and defend the other team's top scorer? I could go on and on. If you don't agree with my starting five then put down yours and who is the most important to you. I'm not going to list Dez Wells in the starting five since he hasn't been cleared yet but feel free to include him if you want. I've also included a poll.
My most important starter is Len. We need him to be dominant inside. He has to have better hands than he did last year. I saw on the website that he got a little stronger and we need him to show it inside this year. This is an area where we can exploit other teams and I think the more successful Len then that's how the Terps will roll.
