The Irish will have height and plenty of it with 6-9 Dave Batton, 6-11 Bill Laimbeer, who returns after sitting out a year, and 6-11 freshman Gil Salinas. The backcourt is in very capable hands-Don Williams and floor-general Rich Branning, who directed the Irish offense the final 22 games after co-capt. Ray Martin broke his ankle. Bruce Flowers, a two-year starter at forward, is expected to team up with Batton, where the two juniors averaged 11.3 and 12.2 points respectively. All in all, the Irish appear to be loaded with top talent.
