    I think before the season people were saying we had 5 guys, 6 if Bolton was eligible, and that we really needed 1-2 of Lewis, Griffin, Jackson, Grill or Leech to be legit. Grill, Griffin, and Jackson have been okay, but none are really playing at a level where you can swap them in for a starter without a drop off. Hopefully they use these 3 cupcakes they have left to get Grill, Zion, and Jackson more time. All three look like they’re at least a year away though.

    The lineups with Conditt so far have been him + 4 guards and him + Jacobsen.

    I don't understand why some people say Conditt is a bad rebounder. Jacobson is averaging 7.6 rpg in the 26.4 mpg he plays. Solo is playing 20.6 and Conditt 17.6 mpg.

    If minutes are equalized at Jacobson's 26.4 mpg, Conditt would avg 7.3 rpg and Solo 4.2.rpg.

    IMO Conditt.ahould start at the stretch 4 position and defend the opponent's stretch 4. Let Jacobson play the 5

    Are we sure Foster wants to play another season of morbid 3A basketball?

    He'd be getting about 28 minutes a game if he was here now.

    Jacobson was a real bright spot last year. He looks lost this year.

    IMO.... Jacobson, Solo, and Conditt all have good looking mid range shots - so, since we don't rebound - maybe let them shoot those more?

    We desperately need to run more motion/screens on offense - our 4- out spacing offense just hasn't been consistently good with this group.

    I love Conditt, but, at times, he's like Cam Lard - in that he'll play bad defense, in order to chase a block.

    Without looking at the numbers, I'm guessing a lot of that is due to playing time reduction?

    Just looked and he is playing the same minutes per game. I just think it has to do with his role/position now.

    Michigan out coached everyone in the second half of their games. I really like Howard, and am looking forward to watching his growth as a coach. I think they had a big run to start every second half in the tournament. If we cut that run in half we probably win, but they are great at protecting a lead.

    If Jacobson continues to struggle would not be surprised if Conditt takes his spot. Regardless we need to find more minutes for him because he's really been good so far this season and is a much needed rim protector that will allow our guards to take more chances on the perimeter defensively.

    The thing I wish this team would do from a game strategy standpoint is quit jacking up so many 3 pointers early and establish a post game and dribble drive offense that attacks the rim. That's when this offense is at its best right now and if you establish an inside game it will open things up for better shots on the perimeter if they defense has to defend the paint more. We have the bigs and athletes to be more aggressive in the paint so don't understand why we are settling for long jumpers early in the shot clock. If we don't start knocking down 3's more consistently the scouting report is going to be sag off us and let us have those shots until we prove we can hit them with any kind of consistency.

    TH
    Bolton
    Nixon
    Zion (MJ sub)
    Conditt (Solo Sub)

    Jackson/Grill sub for the 3 guards. I think part of the problem with our bench production/Zion is they play scared; a missed shot and Steve relegates them back to the bench to be lost for most of the 2nd half. Got to let some guys find some rhythm but hard to do with 4 minutes a night. We frequently cut back on subs in the second half and get gassed late.

    Solo and Conditt rarely play together which doesn't make sense to me because Conditt is a true 5 and Solo is a true 4. It seems like a no-brainer to pair them up.

    My hot take is that Tre starts in front of Nixon by B12 play. We need a shooter in our starting lineup if this team is going to make the tourney. Jackson hasn't been great behind the arc but his potential far outweighs Nixon's. Tre just so happens to play great defense too. This is not a knock on Nixon btw, I think he has been solid but at some point Prohm needs to roll the dice a bit.

    That is pretty much the lineup anyways with the exception of Jacobson getting more PT with no reasoning behind it since he isn’t a good enough shooter to be a real threat and not athletic enough to get his own shot or cause problems with driving the lane. Pairing solo and conditt would actually shake things up. With conditt and solo on the floor one of them will definitely get a mismatch. The strength this year is our front court but we are playing like it’s our back court I think eventually prohm will go with conditt and solo. MJ is irrelevant since they are trying to use him like a stretch which he just doesn’t have the tools for.

    Agree on Howard.
    I didn't realize until the camera panned their bench that they hired Phil Martelli to be an ass't coach. That was a brilliant decision.

    after we brick some threes in the b12 this season I can already hear Fran Fraschilla saying his usual "ahhh....you're open for a reason!"
