Murray is starter caliber for most teams right now. Probably should be for the Hawks too every game. Playing time has already made him better.
I heard there were some unhappy Iowa fans who believe Murray should be starting over Connor.

He may have, I haven’t much of Iowa’s games so I will take your word; but playing time will only improve you so much. A good coach will develop them into the next level.

Gesell had 205 assists his senior year. By comparison, Bolton has 71 this year. Gesell was another guy called terrible by CyTwins. Monte Morris had 217 assists his senior year. Mike Gesell is no Monte Morris but he also isn't "terrible".

Testifying
There's no point in arguing it because no change will be made, but there is truly no reason Connor is starting at this point.
The minute usage has always been weird. Olaseni started 1 game his entire career and averaged less than 14 minutes. That never made sense to me either.

Fran has always done a terrible job of minutes and playing more guys than he should.

I'd start Keegan. He does need to become a better passer though.
That should come as the game slows down a bit and he gets more mature. I don't get the people that think Connor deserves the minutes he gets solely due to his passing ability. Don't get me wrong, he's not a bad passer, he's good, but 3.2 apg isn't anything to really rant and rave about.

from this point on (assuming Fredrick is a GO) Garza, Wieskamp and Fredrick should all see at least 30 minutes unless in foul trouble. I don't care if Conner starts and finishes the game but I think Keegan should see more minutes overall. I have no idea what to do with the pg minutes at this point. flip a coin

I still don't know why you think he is so good. I understand he was a high profile recruit for a coach like Fran (still can't believe he didn't end up at UIC) but what has he done to make you think he's good?
Silky smooth ball handler, plays good defense, is a better option than Bohannon, and my genius opinion matters.
