New Year, same old problems - short bench, no big men....
The truth about MERCER! Nov 14, 5:36 p.m.
They shot 68.8% (22-32).

In an excellent opportunity to see how ALL of his players are developing in a GAME situation, he plays 8-12 a total of 36 minutes, or the average of 7 minutes each. It should have been more like 20 minutes each.
The same way McKillop did?

It sure would be a hoot to have the starters ride the pine this Friday and watch the rest of the team compete for a win. Never happen, of course.

You never do "Get it"... In an excellent opportunity to see how ALL of his players are developing in a GAME situation, he plays 8-12 a total of 36 minutes, or the average of 7 minutes each. It should have been more like 20 minutes each.
So it doesn't look like K has changed his stubborn ways.

we make 60-70% of the shots at the line and we win the game...

It's still early. So far one game against Davidson and one game against KU. I don't have any problem with the way minutes were given out against KU because KU was a winnable game only if the very best players exceeded or matched their expected number of minutes.
As for Davidson,
12 guys played. Maybe K has changed his stubborn ways about playing bench players in real game situations...

maybe because of all the fouls being called....get to the line. But we shot those horrible.

As a UNC man i have to give it to Duke and say you have an awesome team and hands down the best coach around. As far as this season it is very early and i think you guys will be just fine and have a great chance at number 5. You have a very young team and it will take all season to grow. Good Luck, i am not looking forward to playing you guys this year.

Seed / Tizu... we can lead them to water...

My point, for those not intellectually challenged, was that they don't get to play long enough to prove their worth. Practice is one thing, in game is another. They will never get the experience needed to play more in games if they don't get to...play in games.
Good point, Tizu. Game play IS very different than practice. Have to ask...why did Duke decide to drive to the basket the last 2 minutes instead of looking for the 3? Not asking anyone to be K, but it did seem odd.
