In this year’s Wisdom of Crowds series, our assignment is to figure out how Coach Wright will replace 40% of last season’s offense produced by departed players Scottie Reynolds, Reggie Redding, and Taylor King. In that quest, we now turn to our attention to sophomore forward, Isaiah Armwood. By the way, there is still time to vote in our earlier WOC polls:
Use the voting buttons, below, to predict the points per game you think Isaiah will score this year and the comment section to explain your thinking. To help you come up with your prediction, we have provided his stats from last season and a "third party expert" player assessment, below.

Strengths: "Long, bouncy forward who shows some upside … Has a huge wingspan and aggressively attacks the rim for explosive dunks and put backs … Does a solid job of staying within his comfort zone, as a hustle forward that provides energy on the glass … Shows decent touch on his mid-range shot, but rarely attempts it … "
Weaknesses: "Must get a defined position … Right now he is a tweener stuck between the 3 and 4 positions … Mainly plays on the block and crashes the glass and nearly all of his shots are within 6-8 feet of the basket … Has the foot speed and quickness to develop into a 3, but it will take playing at that position for him to really become comfortable there … Ball handling and passing ability must develop ... Must become more confident and comfortable in his offensive game … Often times he rushes shots and shows a lack of polish finishing around the rim ... Must work on his shooting range …"
