    The latest player preview from the Indy Star: Rosie Jones

    Sounds like Rosie is going to get a lot of "PG" work. I'd be really surprised if anyone is averaging more minutes than Rosie (Clarke will be right there).

    It's also interesting to ponder if Rosie could be the starting PG for his junior and senior campaigns. He's certainly a very valuable chess piece.

    Good call, Karen. Rosie alluded to Evan Turner a great deal. I doubt he pulled that out of thin air. I think the staff likely pointed to him as one to emulate, from a true forward to the primary ball handler for a #1 seed.

    Brad has shown that he likes using the point forward (Hayward, for instance). Using Rosie in this role, if possible, gives him many more options for lineups. It also creates mismatches on the offensive end of the floor.
