I agree that it is a good article since you can't just write, "Never have seen 8 of the players on the roster, so your guess is as good as mine."
Yes, how well Parker plays is huge for USF. As is how quickly Christiansen can become a solid, rotation big.
One more huge question for USF is how good is Doolin going to be? Is he going to be the glue point guard that is hit or miss from the field? Or is he going to put up 39 minutes/28 point/5 board/5 assists/1 turnover games regularly like he did vs. SMC in Vegas?
I think he might really step up taking over the team leadership position from Rashad Green.
