Early thoughts on who could start for UE, USI men’s basketball and more

EVANSVILLE — We are so back.

Yes, my friends, it is mailbag time. It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve written one of these, and now, as the lede suggests, we’re back. There’s been a lot of fun stuff going on this fall, from the football scene to basketball practices and pretty much everywhere in between.

We have a lot to cover, so let’s get into it.

It’s tough to say since official practices haven’t started and the availability to watch their workouts has been limited to media, so take this with a bit of a grain of salt. That being said, the names I’ve heard the most are Tanner Cuff, Chuck Bailey III and Antonio Thomas.

I was told during his recruitment how high of a priority Cuff was as a target. He committed not too long after his visit over other offers from Vermont and UMBC. I suspect bigger names would have come calling, too. His speed of play is exactly what coach David Ragland and staff want. He has great size for a point guard at 6-foot-6 and can probably play the shooting guard spot, as well.

Evansville’s Head Coach David Ragland gives direction during a timeout as the University of Evansville Purple Aces play the Indiana State University Sycamores at Ford Center in Evansville, Ind., Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023.

I’ve touched on Bailey a lot in the past, so I’ll try to keep it brief. We know the caliber of offers he had during his recruitment and how highly touted he was in high school. I think it’s important to remember that he’s also just a freshman and there will be freshman moments. His athleticism and shooting touch, though, look decent.

Thomas is probably an expected guy to be here. He’s the experienced point guard Ragland wanted. His stint in the Missouri Valley Conference at Bradley and his performances at Kentucky Wesleyan give reasons for optimism. Division II transfers can be hit-or-miss, but the MVC has seen its share of successful ones. He has an eye for a pass and can shoot when needed, as well.

I want to shout out Cameron…
