I don't want to speculate who or who's not returning but I have a strong gut feeling. No names mentioned. Because the board will get testy with me & not fair to the players. But we could be looking at 5 leaving.
It would be great if Jelly shows the brilliance that made him NYS Mr. Basketball. He certainly has the ability for 8 assists a game given the right supporting cast. But I still think RP is going to force him to win the job. The point guard needs to be a leader both on and off the court. He has to play with confidence and under control on offense and defense. If he does we’ll be in great shape at the point.
Any good coach will force his players to win their jobs, some game by game.
You need to improve every year, every month, every day. Someone wants your job, your position, your minutes..... We live in a "what have your done for me lately" world. There will be recruits at the guard position. Who plays the best is what counts. Not your pedigree.
I'm extremely confident that Gist, Van Eyck, and commit Rob Brown are sticking around. I WAS confident in Jelly until he deleted all his social media--I hope you guys are right, that he's doing this to show Pitino where his focus is at. Would seem odd for him to delete all of that stuff, then leave. So, yes, I expect Jelly to be here.
There were rumors re Ross, but I don't know how valid they are. I hope he stays.
I have no clue re any of the other players.
