Fields should give us some height on the inside as he rebounded well, blocks shots nicely and scored in the paint for UNC-Wilmington. He's 6-9 and 230. Fields can't fully replace Chism but the blocks and boards are something Williams doesn't like to do. He can also give Hall a breather. He understands and looks forward to his role, which is nice.
Only shot 50.4% from the line so someone needs to coach him up. Pearl says perimeter (ball screens) and interior defense (hand-to-hand combat) need improvement.
Should be a quality fill-in until we recruit an awesome big man. Bruce and Steve Forbes have their eyes on a couple of fantastic big 'uns for the next class.
