Once the season ended he began the final preparations for junior Ian Miller to take over at point guard. They'd been working on this for over two years. And then one game into the new season - a home loss to South Alabama - Coach Hamilton once again scrapped something he'd worked hard to build. The Miller-to-point experiment was over. Last year he scrapped the lineup in favor of three guards. This year he slid Miller off the ball, and inserted a 6-7 true freshman at point. This despite the fact that his defense was already struggling, and putting in a true freshman would only make it worse.
