Notice how I’m moving on, Lohner/George are now an afterthought.
Joe Wheat, whoever he is, makes a good point,
“Let’s start with why the news was concerning. It’s not because BYU is losing two irreplaceable stars. I love Lohner and George as much as anyone. They both have NBA level size and athleticism, but the production simply hasn’t been there. George and Lohner averaged a combined 15/11/2 on 43% shooting, 30% from three, and 62% from the line. Like it or not, a team built around that kind of production is not going to cut it in the WCC let alone the BIG XII. The issue, then, is not who is transferring, but why.”
Erickson was never in the convo and Baxter was always hurt.
If you want to get down to brass tacks, BYU did not make the Dance (when they were guaranteed all season long until that 4 game losing streak in the WCC). Think about it, we were a lock for 2/3s of the season. then nobody helped Barcello score, the two biggest minute eaters were Goerge/Lohner. Would I take them back…in a heartbeat but those two are a big part of why we did not dance, movin on.
BYU has to replace Barcello. His shooting and defense although his D was lacking this season partly due to double teams just wearing him out.
Some transfer will come to our rescue, namely a guy like
Antoine Davis, One of College Hoops Top Leading Scorers, to Visit BYU - Vanquish The Foe
BYU Makes Top 8 For Coastal Carolina Transfer Point Guard Rudi Williams - Vanquish The Foe
not hearing anything more on Sean East, he signed with Missoui

Lets say we have the Point taken care of
Foos had a historic Fr campaign. He can get 20/10
That is about it, others can get 10 points on a good night but Pope needs scoring
The other 2 RM Fr. of Toolson and Saunders are scoring machines, but so was Erickson so we will see.
Hall (for a lack of a true Point)
Starters next month
