Bern’s take: The junior is determined to keep himself in the main rotation and he’ll have a chance to do just that. Early in the season, before sophomore Khem Birch becomes eligible, Lopez-Sosa will get the necessary time to prove he’s developed in the offense since an up-and-down sophomore season. Even after Birch enters the picture the Rebels will rely on their depth all year and it will be up to Lopez-Sosa to make sure he’s a part of that.
