    It's time to start Morris

    I know he is getting starter minutes, but ISU seems to be stale when he has not been in over the last few weeks. The slow starts to halves happen with him on the bench. I like having Long on the team, but he needs to be coming off the bench, and was much better in that role when Thomas was starting.

    Morris-Kane-Ejim-Niang-Hogue should be starting from here out.

    Especially for road games. Can't dig ourselves in a hole early.

    Re: It's time to start Morris

    I like Morris coming off the bench, but I'd say he's definitely one of our five best players. It won't be an easy decision for Fred.

    Re: It's time to start Morris

    I agree MM should start. Or try starting MT again, I'm sorry but Naz really is not getting it done right now. We can't keep playing catch up in the Big 12, too many talented teams

    Re: It's time to start Morris

    The whole point of bringing him off the bench is to give Kane a break after the first few minutes. If both of them start then our fresh PG would be Naz.

    Matt coming off the bench is not as important to the team

    MT has his stroke back a bit. I'd be fine with that.

    Re: It's time to start Morris

    I think Naz is better coming off the bench, like McGee last year.
    And I agree about starting MM, game seems to flow much better when he is in there.

    Re: It's time to start Morris

    I don't know if you can start Monte because he is sort of he calming presence off the bench along with giving Fred a fresh PG to work with..Naz really hasn't done much lately to earn his starting role though.

    Have Naz sub in for Morris while Kane stays into play point or vice-versa. Why is this so complicated for people to understand?

    Each time ISU made its big run he was on the floor.

    I was kind of hoping Bubu would slide into that role again, but it seems like that ship may have sailed.

    WAT? Monte comes in for Naz every single game.

    There's also that distraction that can give you good minutes, but that has become to political...

    Re: It's time to start Morris

    I think we should play more minutes with three guards (Kane, Morris, Long, Thomas) and two forwards (Melvin, Dustin, Georges) on the floor. Starters don't matter so much to me. I just think our ball movement and spacing isn't as good with three forwards on the floor so much.
