I was counting Murphy since he did match up with our bigs, and he is big, even though e doesn't play it.
As I also mentioned though, uconn, very big front line and very talented. And not for nothing, but I felt our bigs, especially stokes, held their own against UK. I'd say they faired about as well as anybody against UK.
I agree Maymon is short, but so was Barkley and Blair, and they made it work fine. He uses his quickness to best guys to the spot. As far as stokes, what he lacks in height, there are few bigs as strong as he is, so he just gains position and doesn't relinquish it. Our bigs did a great job last year, and outplayed just about all the bigs thy faced, and that was with jarnell and kenny only playing about 6 games together. So with all 3 of those guys going, I think our posts are the best in the SEC, and one of the best in the country.
