    Have to find more minutes for McGee

    He's averaging a little under 20 minutes/game. Fred has done a nice job mixing in everyone. With that said, I still think McGee needs to be on the floor more. He can still come off the bench if he's the designated spark. He's too good offensively and defensively to be sitting next to the coaches for half the game.

    Re: Have to find more minutes for McGee

    I agree totally. Love that he stepped up and took a huge charging call in the 2nd half. His hustle will allow him to get more playing time.

    Re: Have to find more minutes for McGee

    I noticed that after today's game McGee is now leading us in points per minute. I have no problem with him coming off the bench, but it seems like he should be getting starter type minutes (wouldn't be surprised if this happens over the next few weeks).

    Re: Have to find more minutes for McGee

    Agree with this completely. I hate to say it, but Scottie needs to lose some minutes. With so many other shooters on the floor and the lack of a talented point guard, he isn't nearly as valuable as he was last year. His defense continues to be a liability as well.

    Once he earns it on gameday and in practice, he will get it. That's how I remember when I played HS ball.

    Fred said because of the way he plays the game, extremely hard, he does not have the stamina to play more minutes at this point. He goes all out when he is in there so really he needs a rest after a few minutes.

    Lol, we are saying these things because we believe he's earned it on gameday. He's been the 'X-Factor' thus far this season, IMO.

    Didn't hear the game tonight. Did Sledge get any minutes? I know there has been talk of him being unhappy. I was thinking he might be the PG we were looking for and was holding out hope he might still get it done.

    Sledge didn't play tonight. You have to wonder how he's dealing with his role. He's talented, but where do his minutes come from? He will get his eventually. Bubu played 26 solid minutes and hit a big shot late in the game.

    This team is so deep. Fred will earn every penny this year keeping everyone's ego in check. McGee reminds me of Willoughby. He's bulkier, but they have similar games. We haven't had a triple-threat guard like him in a long time.

    Re: Have to find more minutes for McGee

    you can't discount mcgee's leadership intagibles either. whenever he was on the floor tonight, he would take charge of the huddles before free throws or if there was a bad call that went against the cyclones, he was always there motivating and encouraging the other players on the floor. in my mind, that is the number 1 reason he needs to see the floor more is because not only is he a good leader on the court, the other players seem to really take to him in that role.

    You're right. He's also a leader/energy guy. I'd love to see what he could do with 30+ minutes. If his stamina is an issue, then we're probably getting all we can from him. Nobody knows how to manage guards better than Fred.

    Re: Have to find more minutes for McGee

    I love the way McGee plays and acts on the floor!

    On a side note, I think Bubu had 26 minutes against Providence.

    Re: Have to find more minutes for McGee

    I am very impressed with McGee. He's probably our best overall guard at this point and he's probably going to get better.

    I was also impressed with Royce's stat line yesterday. He didn't score a lot of points, but he got the message that we need more rebounding and he responded.

    My daughter fell in love with McGee after watching him play for 2 minutes. Not because he is cute, either. He brings it.
