At the start of the day Friday, the SDSU men’s basketball team’s projected starting five looked something like this:
G: Devin Watson
G: Trey Kell
F: Max Hoetzel
F: Malik Pope
F: Jeremy Hemsley in a trenchcoat, standing on Jordan Schakel’s shoulders
As such, the questions swirling around the 2017-18 season included such doozies as:
- Can Jalen McDaniels gain 55 pounds in a summer?
- Can Nolan Narain get bitten by a radioactive spider?
- Is it bad that this team has no established big men?
- No, really. Is that bad?
At the end of the day Friday, things seem … a little less dire. You have Kameron Rooks to thank for that.
