Solomon Mangham

Inside man has to be a presence on the boards

When James Miller was injured last season, it appeared Solomon Mangham would pick up some of the scoring slack. During a two-week span, the forward had 17 points against the University of Maryland-Baltimore County and 13 points at Hawaii, before a high ankle sprain forced him to miss the final 16 games of the season.

Mangham, a senior, does a lot of his damage in the paint, and will get many inside scoring opportunities as opponents look to contain Marcel Boyd in the post. Mangham — who’ll likely shift between being a starter and the first player off the bench — will also have to be a presence on the boards (he averaged 5.6 rebounds per game last season).
