Yeah, I wouldn't glean roster/rotation nuggets from that piece.
FWIW, BU's Indiana all-stars debut last night was rather meh. Comer on the other hand, played very well for Junior team.
Yea both BU recruits came off the bench to log just a few minutes and only a hand full of points. Hope they log more and show out against KY this weekend.
In the All-Star games it usually depends on the coaches and how they allocate the minutes. I'm dating myself but I remember Larry Bird not getting very many minutes back when he played in the All-Star game.
FWIW, Thomas in his 12 min was +7 and Taylor in his 12 min was I believe a -3. Comer was very impressive, I think he had the best +/- on the juniors at a -7 for comp IUs CJ Gunn I think ended with a -30 or more
Box Score for Butler Commits/Targets in the Jr. vs. Sr. game
Pierce Thomas: 12:03 minutes, 4 points (2-for-2 2P, 0-for-2 3P), 4 def rebounds, 3 assists, 0 turnovers, +7
Jayden Taylor: 14:40 minutes, 6 points (2-for-6 2P, 0-for-1 3P), 5 rebounds (3 off, 2 def), 3 assists, 0 turnovers -13
Tayshawn Comer: 20:52 minutes, 16 points (6-for-8 2P, 1-for-3 3P, 1-for-3 FT), 2 def reobunds, 2 assists, 3 turnovers, 2 steals, -3.
Since it was referenced, Gunn had 6 points on 2-for-13 and was -36 in 22:48.
Difficult to summarize if Thomas is still bothered by the hamstring issue.
Thomas with 11 points off the bench tonight.
Taylor with 6 points on 3 for 3 shooting last night.
And PT was a perfect 3 for 3 from behind the arch.
The Star posted an image that Thomas may have injured a finger in the 2nd half? He only played briefly (4 minutes). Taylor played well again.
Must have been the Butler Medical and Training Staff at work.
So what you’re saying is Luke Brown had the highest +- of any player in the game………………………
Maybe we trade someone with Stetson?

Glad for Luke Brown and he did impress with his passing game as I knew he was a scorer but didn’t realize he was as good of a passer as he is.
I will note most all Kentucky kids were low D1 or D2 players and Luke still showed he was susceptible to speed guards.
Think Luke is at right level to be a starter fairly early on in his career. Think the speed of guards in Big East might always be a pretty big hill for him to overcome.
He could likely develop by Junior/Senior year as being a 5-15 minute a night player in P6 conference as the scorer off the bench and you would play zone defense most of the time he played.
I’m still fine on passing on him!!!
