    Jermaine Haley, who averaged 7 points per game went off for almost 30 against NWB. Nick was the king of closing out on shooters with his hands down. I liked NWB but to say he was more deserving of minutes than Wigginton is crazy. Also to think Haliburton couldn’t have been effective last year at PG is insane. You don’t go from incapable of running point to a lottery pick a year later. The ability was there we just didn’t use him in that role because Prohm wanted it to be NWB. I always admired NWB for playing injured but he always seemingly slowed it down on offense. Last years team would have been better if Tyrese was running the show and getting Shayok, Wigginton and THT the ball. That being said, who cares? That’s in the past. No point in arguing about it lol.

    I can’t imagine how bad our rebounding and defense would have been without Babb playing big minutes.

    so what if THT was drafted, he played like absolute dog sh%t for 3 out of every 4 games. When he was on, he was on, but you never knew when that was going to happen. Therefore Wigs should have started. THT was drafted on potential, not how he was actually playing. Heck he was freakin the worst player on the floor against Ohio State, he knew too, look at his post game video, he knew he stunk up the place. He shouldn't have even been out there.

    and slowing down the offense like NWB did, played right into Ohio State's hands, loved NWB, just thought we used him wrong.

    Could you imagine the outrage right now if Prohm had a draft pick coming off the bench.

    The same as wining 12 games with a lottery pick?

    The revision would have been epic. Lindell would no longer be the victim or evil Steve Prohm.

    Tyrese spent his whole summer working on getting his shot off when he wasn't with Team USA. He was much better as a secondary creator off the catch his freshman year. He shot off the dribble twice the whole season, and was thin as a hell. Two big reasons he didn't come out last year. Not ideal as primary ball-handler in a pnr offense. There are a lot of fair questions for Prohm, but the man does point guards as good as anyone, I think he made the right call.

    In fairness to Babb, Haley was scoring on everybody the second half the year, just look at his game log.

    Wigginton played more minutes than THT in games that mattered down the stretch; I think that is telling on who should have been starting.

    No one complained about McGee coming off the bench and playing starter minutes.

    It’s more about who’s playing at the end rather than at the beginning. Hell James Harden came off the bench when he was at OKC. Dion Waiters came off the bench at Syracuse and was a lottery pick. Some players can accept their role that’s in the best interest of the team, some can’t.

    Mc3 averaged the same amount of minutes as Niang and was coming off the bench!!!!!
    See what happens when you mismanaged starters? You lose to Ohio State in the NCAA tournament!

    In man-to-man Foster might be a defensive liability against many teams that go with a wing 4.

    But if Foster is ready to start because of his offense skills, then Prohm may need to experiment with a zone. Having to shoot over a 7' wing is a bit of a challenge for a 6'4"ish shooter.

    At 6'8 Young needs to continue to develop as a wing defender to ensure future livelihood. That said pairing Young with Foster and Conditt with the small ball 4s should allow us to distribute minutes and play man.

    By pairing Young with Foster it allows Foster to defend as a 5 but maintain the freedom of a 4 on O.

    So he played more. So are you saying that THT should have never played?
