    Where is SDW at?

    After hearing about his strength and conditioning in the off season and the fact that he put up 66 pts in a Cap City League game (I know there is no defense, but that is still filling it up) , I thought for sure he would be in the rotation this year. Maybe it's too early to tell....

    Well, we didn't need him the first 35 minutes of the game when all our players were eligible. And the last 5 minutes we just needed 4 defenders and the ball in Niangs hands. And SDW isn't a defender.

    Re: Where is SDW at?

    He's not ready yet. I've said this numerous times, but from his play in the early games it seems like he's mentally at roughly the same place Long was last year.

    If someone goes down, he'll be there to step in (that's what depth is for), but don't expect him to crack the normal rotation. Fred rotates 7 guys. That's what he does, and has done every year. "Depth" for him isn't rotating 12 guys (like Fran), its having guys who can step into the 7 man rotation if someone goes down to injury or foul trouble.

    I'm sure he'll get some time in during the easier non-conference, and hopefully will get into the flow. It's hard to argue that any of the guys getting minutes right now shouldn't be.

    He didn't wow me when he played in our first 3 games. Probably still developing.

    He didn't wow me either, probably a confidence thing.

    Re: Where is SDW at?

    He did look good in the CCL, but that is not always the best indicator as to who will play. Still, I imagine that he (and Percy) will have chances as this season progresses. Had we gone to OT last night we would have probably needed them.

    Re: Where is SDW at?

    I agree with the Long comparisons. Basically in the same situation as Naz was. Give him time.

    Next game will be great for guys like Percy, SDW, Edozie to get more minutes.
