Overall, the best Redhawk talents -- Murray and Unipig -- are redshirting. 


Frontcourt analysis

* T.J. Diop, 6-foot-8, 215, senior

2.3 points and 2.0 rebounds per game, shot 45% overall

* Louis Green, 6-foot-9, 240, senior 

3.8 points and 2.6 rebounds, shot 54% overall

* Chad Rasmussen, 6-foot-7, 200, senior

5.2 points per game, 36% overall shooting, 36% from long distance, shot four free throws in 505 minutes so he's an outside player

* Deshaun Sunderhaus, 6-foot-9, 215, redshirt freshman (didn't play)

* Clarence Trent, 6-foot-5, 225 junior     

9.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game, shot 46% overall

* Jack Crook, 6-foot-11, 255 freshman out of the UK

He possesses the best size but any immediate contribution from him would be unexpected, although he was on the trip Seattle took to China this summer.

Backcourt analysis

* Sterling Carter, 6-foot-0, 200, junior

10.1 points but 37% overall shooting, 36% from long distance, just 23 free throws attempts on the season
* Jarell Flora, 6-foot-3, 180, sophomore

3.4 points per game, shot 43%

* Prince Obasi, 6-foot-2, 205 senior

4.8 points per game, shot 41% overall, 38% from long distance, 73 assists

* Allen Tate, 6-foot-5, 205, senior

2.8 points and 2.6 rebounds per game, shot 35%

Word is that Tate has started to come on.

D'Vonne Pickett, 5-foot-11, 180, junior

He scored 11.7 points and passed for 5.5 assists a game this past season. Pickett shot 42% overall, 36% from three-point range and 53% from the foul line. He enjoyed a better statistical year as a freshman but still looks to be the starter for Dollar at the point.

Emmanuel Chibuogwu, 6-6 185 freshman

Won't see much time, may redshirt

Luiz Bidart 6-0, 195 redshirt freshman

David Trimble 6-1, 185 freshman

He did make the Redhawk trip to China so that should aid in his early development.


Seattle is coming off a 12-15 season, with a positive 9-6 record at home. Against WAC teams in 2011-12, Dollar's squad lost twice to Idaho, split with Utah State, lost to SJSU and also dropped one to Fresno State.

It's a sense of maƱana for the Redhawks as Emerson Murray, a 6-foot-3 junior transfer from California and Isiah Umipig, a Cal State Fullerton 6-foot-1 transfer will be redshirting this season.

Dollar does have quite a number of seniors on his roster (five) and he is going to have to count on his previous role players demonstrating advancement if the Redhawks are to become a player in the WAC this season. Trent has the potential to be a double-double guy each game so watch to see if he's taken a step forward.

It's dangerous prognosticating period, especially so without having seen a team play but, based on the above, it's hard to see an upper division Redhawk finish. There aren't enough guys who are capable of winning their position each night. That ought to work as solid bulletin board material.


The Redhawk starting lineup:

* Louis Green
* Clarence Trent
* Sterling Carter
* D'Vonne Pickett
* Prince Obasi
