Lol yeah you're definitely not the one being weird in this thread. You're more invested in this than me. It's not that serious.
King should be coming in for Shoon. Jaz can play the 4. Watson. Jones wasn't completely awful today, but he has had multiple stretches in conference play where he has almost singlehandedly let the opponent back in the game. He's not a Big 12 player. It's obvious to everyone but you I guess.
That is only REMOTELY true if you expect Jones to be a big time scorer.
Jones has taken 48 shots in 10 Big12 games and he plays 17mpg. Jones is out there to play physical basketball, defend the paint, set picks and rebound. He has had VERY FEW games this season where he hasn't done a solid job in those areas. Jones' strengths compliment Osun's weaknesses.
Now that we have Osunniyi, Jones, T. King, Watson, Ward and Kunc all healthy it will be interesting to see how TJ spreads the minutes. It appears that Ward & Watson will probably be the odd guys out. Against KU, the Osun/Jones tandem still played 40 minutes. But we played King/Kunc 27 minutes, so the guys who lost minutes were our 4 guards. But that is probably a good thing as they played around 33minutes instead of 37minutes. Fewer minutes for the 4 guards might keep their legs fresh for the stretch run.
