UNLV's Unique Potential Starting Lineup

Could potentially be UNLV's starting 5, this might be the first time since the 1966 Texas Western roster that was made famous in the film Glory Road that a team featured a starting lineup of transfers.

UNLV's potential starting 5

PG - Deville Smith (Mississippi State)
SG - Jelan Kendrick (Ole Miss and Memphis)
SF - Bryce Jones (USC)
PF - Roscoe Smith (UCONN)
C - Khem Birch (Pittsburgh)

Now, they could easily end up starting Savon Goodman at one of the wing spots, and Carlos Lopez-Sosa at center...But, right now this is a certain possibility

Savon Goodman is suspended

Savon Goodman is suspended for the season. Carlos Lopez-Sosa won't beat out Khem Birch for a starting spot. I think the starting lineup will be the one you have listed above.

I apologize for the Savon

I apologize for the Savon Goodman error. That's inexcusable

1 guy you didn't mention is

1 guy you didn't mention is freshman Kendall Smith,the coaching staff is excited about him..His play has been impressive during the summer and in practices...Most observers expect him to challenge Deville Smith for the starting pg spot...

Khem Birch will be their top frontcourt player and maybe their most important player.....He has to be among the most underrated players in the nation...Birch is a great defender, with UNLV losing 70% of its offense from last season and with so many new players coach Rice will expect more on the offensive end from Birch....

Jelan Kendricks is a talented player but troubled player,he lacks discipline both on & off the court...After stops in Memphis,Ole Miss and a jr. college, it'll be interesting to see how much he's matured..And will his mind be focused and dedicated to playing basketball?

Jelan Kendrick has been a

Jelan Kendrick has been a model citizen so far. He's been a good ambassador for the program and has helped in recruiting. Only time will tell to see how much he's matured.

The Texas Western starting

The Texas Western starting lineup wasn't all transfers. Most those guys Haskins recruited out of high school.
