Depth consolidation

After three full practices — 13, if you’re counting the pre-Australia trip workouts — the basketball ‘Bows have a full roster of options.

“We have a foundation of how we run a program, a foundation of style of play,” UH coach Eran Ganot said. “We’re not stubborn. We’ll wrinkle it to our strengths. Maybe this year, there will be versatility within a game.”

Translation: The ‘Bows have the personnel groups to go big, attack with two point guards, use a three-guard offense, slide a wing to the 4, and play at different tempos.

“The exciting thing is we have a clearer picture that we did a month ago,” Ganot said. “Wait until you see some guys who are uncomfortable get comfortable.”

In recent years, the ‘Bows have used a rotation of eight or nine players. “I think you can see us expanding from eight or nine to nine or 10 or, maybe, 10 or 11.”

The bigger rotation, Ganot explained, will allow the ‘Bows to “get after people a little bit more.” It also should accelerate the ‘Bows’ transition game.
