    Lack of bench is killing us....

    Our lack of depth and short turnaround from Saturday definitely showed in this game. We need to get Edozie and Gibson some mins, they owned us rebounding and underneath, great heart in this team, but when our shooting goes cold I foresee similar outcomes without a deeper bench. Rest up , big game Saturday......

    Our bench needs to do something. Naz has never really came around since week 1. Thomas needs to find his shot. Monte should start. To many stand around threes, not in the flow of the offense.

    Sorry I see it as more of a front court issue, Niang, Ejim and Hogue were just gassed in the second half, plus with all the double we kept throwing I am sure it affected all of them....

    Gibson or Edozie are not the answer. How bout one of your starters clamoring for "revenge" in the papers today doesn't shoot 4 for fu%$%$ 20. Niiiang hits a quarter of those shots and we win.

    A lot of teams only go 7 and 8 deep. The lack of depth isn't a big problem.

    That's a good point about the doubles - we really had to bust our butts covering that big front court. Dustin held his own; of course Ejim played ok, but the fouls caught up a nd he fouled out

    Wiggins: 38 minutes, Tharpe: 36 minutes, Selden: 33 minutes.

    Re: Lack of bench is killing us....

    We have major holes on this roster, that is a fact. We don't have a 2-guard that can score against teams with a pulse, and it's not like they play great D.

    We have very little depth, and no height, so our mismatch strategy is totally screwed when we play a team that is long and athletic and our 3-balls aren't falling.

    We really need one more really good post, and a consistent scoring 2-guard before we're going to take the next step as a program.

    Did you watch the same game that I did?? They completely killed us on the boards and defensively at the end we just looked tired down low.....

    Re: Lack of bench is killing us....

    Depth really isn't a concern, but on night like this when the players are clearly gassed and they're taking all kinds of abuse from bigger, faster, more talented players on both ends of the court, they need a break. I really have to question Hoiberg not playing Gibson or Edozie tonight, even if not for 2-3 minutes apiece. Would have been greatly appreciated by Ejim/Hogue/Niang I am sure.

    Indeed. They looked exasperated every time KU got one of their 200 offensive boards.

    And lots of teams are hurt by only being able to go 7 deep.

    -There is a big difference between being 7 deep and 8 deep.
    -The issue is that our 5-7 guys really should be 6-8 or 7-10 guys if we were going to have a chance to compete for the Big 12 title.

    Niang might have a shot if he was not stuck guarding EBIID....

    The lack of a tall player was a bigger problem.

    Niang only played 31 minutes, not a huge amount.
