The seldom-used senior combo guard will play a lot — and perhaps even start, if his ball handling improves.

This scares me. I'll believe it when I see it. Maverick was absolutely brutal with the ball in his hands the first 3 years. But, maybe there is a huge improvement that coach Pitino has brought out in him. I know his shot did improve, so we'll see.

So far, we are hearing that all five starters will be Smith's players. Pitino is a terrible recruiter to date.

hjlazni, I would say your an idiot but I won't. Pitino first year as our coach and has added some good players he cant do it overnight but will in time. Geez!

In defense of hjlazni, I'm sure he was just joking since no one could be so ignorant. Regarding Maverick, hopefully he has improved greatly under Pitino.

I think the difference for Maverick and other former Tubby players is they now have a coach that works on improving his talent. I don't remember under the Tubby regime hearing about the hard-nose summer practices like I have heard about this year. If Rich Pitino is anything like his dad this Gopher team WILL be ready to play and play hard the entire season...a season I am eagerly waiting for it to start! GO GOPHERS!
