I talked today with coach Mike Montgomery and several of the freshmen for a story I’m writing next week.
A couple things came out of the conversations:
1) Monty is not ready to reveal who will be in his starting lineup for next Wednesday’s exhibition game against Sonoma State, even if he actually knows.
2) Junior Jorge Gutierrez almost certainly will be running the point to start the season. Montgomery said that for now freshmen Gary Franklin Jr. and Emerson Murray are both concentrating solely on playing the wing, that he doesn’t want to put too much on their plates this early. Franklin and Murray both confirmed that’s the case, although both said they envision playing PG at some point.
