Your Rotation: Now and March

This has probably been discussed in many different places but it's Friday, I'm bored, and I'm starting to think about basketball.  So I ask you this question KU faithful, who is in your rotation right now of solid contributors?   I'm not talking about who plays against Washburn and Fort Hays St., but who will be in the rotation in the Arizona game if things stay close and we get tested like I hope we do?

Here are my thoughts:

 

F - Kief (assuming he's healthy)
F - Cus
G - Mario Little
G - Josh Selby
G - Tyshawn Taylor

Wow, this really was a tough one.  We're so deep at guard right now that it's tough to decide on the 3rd one.  Selby and Taylor are no-brainers but after that it gets questionable.  I could easily see the stability and shooting ability of Tyrel Reed to get him in this spot, but for now I'm going to go with the height and versatility of Little.

Frontcourt Reserves:

Thomas Robinson
Travis Releford
Jeff Withey (When/if healthy)

Backcourt Reserves:

Tyrel Reed
Brady Morningstar
Elijah Johnson

 

Putting Releford as a frontcourt reserve feels like a stretch to me but it's a reality, we are very thin up front and could be a real problem if more injuries come up.  I think it's safe to say that we will be a fast, guard oriented squad this year.  

No revelations really with this, but now I'd like to say where I'd like to have the lineup in March.  To me that means a steady rotation of about 9.  It doesn't mean we can't go 10 deep but 8 is a great number with 9 being more realistic with this type of team.

 

Markieff Morris
Marcus Morris
Mario Little
Josh Selby
Tyshawn Taylor

Tyrel Reed
Thomas Robinson
Travis Releford
Elijah Johnson

 

No inclusion of Brady here which is probably not realistic but I think it's time that his role gets cut down.  Once again, this will be a small team but a fast and athletic one.  No inclusion of Withey isn't what I'd like but it's hard to see him consistently healthy in this hypothetical world I'm in.

So in March, what do you think our 9 man rotation will be?  Or, do you think it will be less or more than that?

Happy Friday.
