I'd say Xeyrius will have the biggest individual impact on our success, however, how much guys like Cheese, Riak, Banks, and LCJ improve from last season IMO will be what makes or breaks our season. Namely I'd like to see more consistency from Cheese, better late game decision making from LCJ, Riak being able to catch a simple dump off pass and dunk, and Banks emerging as a legit 3 & D guy.

"X" will be the "X-Factor" this year due to how he'll stretch the floor on offense and affect matchups on defense. 

 

With that being said, Year-to-Year Improvement from the Core is a close 2nd, and Tribble is my 3rd option. I've said it a lot on this board - guards are the key to success in college basketball. Between Tribble, LCJ, and Cheese, our backcourt is in good shape. Really good shape. 

 

Hopefully basketball can provide some hope and joy to what has been a dismal 2019-20 sports season so far for the University.

I actually went with the core improving as the #1 choice with X as #2. I'd have taken Xeyrius over any of the individual core players, but I was offered that group as a whole so I took that.

I voted for X.  My thought is that by this point most of the players are what they are and the way your going to see substantial improvement is by adding to that nucleus.

I had to go with the core rather than any one individual player since the Transfer Portal is always prowling around, seeking whom it may devour..

Very little.  It's just a joking jab at Danny's tracing all that is bad in the world back to Larry Williams.

I voted Xeyrius Williams.  5th(?) year senior with experience playing at this level.

 

For me, Greg Tribble and Camron Reece are tied for #2.  X will make an immediate impact.  But I think these two will be up to speed before conference play begins.  I remember following Tribble's recruiting in high school.  He's a serious talent.  And Reece looks like a monster; our next Ultimate Warrior, a'la Jeremiah Wood or Demetrius Treadwell.

 

Then again, I don't think any of the above mentioned players will matter if our returning core doesn't improve their shooting percentage from behind the arc.

I personally think Tyler Cheese will have the biggest impact on the team this year.

Haven't enough info to make a judgement, however... it had better be Reece!  Because we need post play badly to improve to have a chance of improving either in MAC play or overall!
