    Charles can score from anywhere. But what gives him an upper hand over his competition in the starting role is his ability to rebound and post up. He is the strongest guy on the team. They need a guy who can both score and rebound. This is their guy. I agree with BYU Blue, this should be a no-brainer. If the post-play on this team is significantly improved this year, they should win the conference.

    I see starting Abouo as a no-brainer. I saw him play live in Ft. Worth last year. The guy has great all-around skills, he can score from anywhere on the court, plus his primary competition at the 3 spot are Rogers (an under-weight outside shooter, and not much else at this point), and a true freshman. I'd love to see either one take on Charles when he posts up low against them on a designed play.

    It will be interesting to see how Rose divides the playing time. Abuo should have a good season, his strength and athleticism will make it hard to keep him off the floor.
    I'm interested to see how the Collingsworth boys play, they have always played smart and they have good skills.
    To me the biggest thing to seeing the cougs play at a top notch level will be how Davies plays. We need someone in the front court to step up and be consistent and a force. Both offensively and defensively.

    I'm looking forward to the game tonight to see how this team is coming together. Abouo has done very well as a backup. It'll be interesting to see if he's ready to take on the role of being a starter.

    Love this player. Love his game. Love his attitude. Love his effort. Great young man. Good luck to you and the team this year.

    Love Abouo's physical strength and skills around the basketball. Also love his team first attitude. This should be a very special year for Cougar hoops. Either SDSU or BYU could win the league and of course UNLV could win its home court league tournament, but if BYU stays healthy it will make the Sweet Sixteen.
