Basketball in the summer

OK, so it's almost July and no one wants to think about college basketball. But the SEC had its annual summer basketball teleconference today. (And in case you're wondering why, it's to help with previews for the fall).

Anyway, Trent Johnson was shooting pretty straight about the prospects for the upcoming season.

"With the exception of Bo (Spencer) and Tasmin (Mitchell), we've got a lot of guys that are coming back that have a lot of work to do and are unproven,'' Johnson said.

"The main thing for us is to focus on this upcoming year and understanding what happened last year is over. There are some challenges in front of us but I think we're all looking forward to it.''

Johnson also said Mitchell will play the three position this year but will move "inside out''.

So it looks like the LSU team will not be as good as last year, but better than what could have been a really bad team if Mitchell hadn't returned.
