    Thanks for the info. I remember hearing about Nate Watson but had already forgotten.

    I took a stab at a minutes projection with what we have now and getting it down to pretty much a 9 man rotation-which is still large but probably feasible.

    Starters:
    Thompson (24)
    Harris (28)
    Hodges (22)
    Golden (19)
    Nze (25)

    Key role bench players:
    Coles (19)
    Scooby (17)
    Wilmoth (14)
    Bolden (13)

    Get them in where we can:
    Thomas (9)
    Taylor (8)
    David (2)



    Ideally Hodges and/or Thomas can effectively serve as a back up point guard for Thompson.

    Thats kind of what I expect too and I hope we spread out our minutes like that. Even if it might be a little rough to start I'd like to see a big rotation of close to even minutes with frequent subs, kind of what Florida State does. Helps keep us aggressive on both ends, gets experience for younger guys, and will help us find which lineups work before the second half of the season.

    If you go much beyond 8 it really messes with individual and team chemistry. 9 is already pushing it and while there’s something to be said for getting lots of minutes, you want guys to be prepared for what they’re going to be asked to do and who they’re going to be on the court with by the time conference rolls around.

    Okay, I realize that David is not high on everyone's list for rotation minutes and all, but if he's healthy at the start of the season he'll likely get used more than that. If nothing else, he knows where to be on defense and he rebounds, and I doubt that he decided to come back just to play spot minutes.

    We do talk about David like he's totally washed but he started games last season. Our perspective may be different than the staffs.

    I think it’s likely you’re right, I’m just saying what I’d do. There are very few circumstances where Id rather have him than someone else unless he’s completely back to preimjury form.

    My opinion may very well change after/if we see Scooby play, he was being projected as the most ready out of all the freshmen and I would love to believe that he can play both sides well enough. Since this will be a veteran team, unless you're just outplaying someone else, you basically have to know your role and do the little things on the court, and I've come to appreciate David in that perspective.....I just wish he would hit more open shots by now, that's why he frustrates us.

    He doesn’t frustrate me at all. He’s tough, before the injury last year he could REALLY guard. He cuts pretty well and this year he actually shot pretty well. I am grateful for his contributions and hard work. I hope we can reward him with minutes, I am just skeptical that with Coles, Scooby and Wilmoth that he won’t be passed over.

    Agree with everything else you said, but he did not actually shoot pretty well this year. Had one good shooting game where he hit 3-4 threes, and that helped his overall %, which was 35%.

    So he shot 35%.

    What part of that is not shooting the ball reasonably well?

    It will be announced later today and is probably the reason the seniors decided to stay. Brad Steven's has decided to leave the Celtics and will become an assistant coach at Butler.

    It’s a shame IU filled their coaching role before today because it could’ve been a really fun day to mess with their fan base.

    35% FG% is reasonably well? Have to be in the 40’s, which he has never been.
    He did have one good game from 3, which made his 3pt. % 33, which is okay, but other than that one 3-4 game, he was 3-14 the rest of the year, which is definitely not shooting reasonably well.
