I'd go with that, but hoping to inject Kent for ORN. would give us a very big line up and mean we haven't wasted that scholarship all this time.[/QUOTE]
I’d make him the 6th or 7th man.

It wasn't even Rob's opinion. He was referencing how Barnes felt, and I think Barnes has done this a time or two.
For reference, Barnes thought his first 2 years our goal should be the NCAA tournament. Not sure that is what he felt, but that was his goal. I understand basketball coaches can't state how they really think.

Rick Barnes is getting some extra help this season in the form of Ken McDonald, who is working as a volunteer assistant. McDonald was previously the head coach at Western Kentucky from 2008-2012 and worked as an assistant at Tulsa last year. He spent this summer as an advance scout for the U.S. National Team in Asia. McDonald was one of the first players that Barnes recruited at Providence and later served on his staff at Texas.
As of today, there is still no word on Uros Plavsic and his appeal for immediate eligibility after transferring from Arizona State. The buzz were hearing is that ASU is being less than cooperative at the moment which, while it doesn’t mean Plavsic will lose his appeal, it can make the process more drawn out.

Unless, when Barnes throws some kids 3 or 5 minutes and they shine, with so many unproven players, this year. That would be big if somebody like JJ exploded for like 20 points or even 12 in 10 minutes. Pons getting a double/double with multiple blocks and TBA exploding dunks. Kent bombing 3s and scoring in the paint, blocking shots and giving out dimes (I really liked the way he passed in high school). All 3 of those guys have been groomed by Barnes for 3 years and that's the magic number so far, during Barnes stint at UT, imo

I'm kind of amazed that Kent is potentially going to contribute after being on the team for about 2 and a half years and logging just 13 minutes in 2 games. I'm pulling for him to stay injury free and to stay out of a shooting slump. I know he handles the ball pretty and runs pretty well. I wonder if he's capable of playing physical post defense or posting up and banging on offense. I also wonder if he'll be a reliable free throw shooter. We barely know the guy.

If he only plays 8 with Plavsic available it would be James,Turner,Bowden,Fulkerson,Plavsic,Johnson,Pons,and Kent.

Without Plavsic insert ORN.
If ZK is ready to roll then that makes Pember a stronger candidate to redshirt. Same deal possibly with Jalen Johnson... if he's a strong contributor then Gaines could take a redshirt as well. Doubt that CRB can afford to RS Pember AND Gaines with 11 eligible or even 10 if Plavsic has to sit out.
