    Zavier Simpson continues to impress me. Not only his work ethic or defense on the court; his cognizance, his ability to realize what makes a team, a team. Am enjoying his growth as player, and a leader.

    Z just got me so fired up.

    Iggy saying JB told him he’s going to play a lot of minutes at the 2 and the 4 seems a lot like “we need to get this kid on the floor and Charles isn’t coming off it”. I don’t remember too many (any?) freshmen that have played both in the backcourt and the wing 3/4 spot during their first year

    We haven’t had anybody play 2 and guard 4s as a freshman I think. But Poole played forward exclusively to start the season and then started playing guard as well about halfway through the season.

    Z seems to be a born leader to me not only on the court but will be in life. I can relate to his fear of flying over water also.

    Yeah, that quote makes a lot of sense. Sure, Iggy has to learn two spots, but that helps you get to a more manageable rotation and he can fill the gaps. Speaks to the positionless language that we’ve used often here in the past few months.

    Iggy can play the 2 or 4 on offense. Livers can play the 4, maybe defend the five. Johns can maybe play the 4 or 5. Matthews at the 3 or 2. Poole at the 2 or 3.

    Then you have Matthews and Simpson who are very good defenders and can guard multiple spots which allows you to mix and match the rest.
