Charlotte (3/4/20)

Recommended Posts

Last game of the regular season.

 

Clinched the regular season title, so from one aspect the game doesn't mean much.  Should we rest our guys as much as possible, or try and keep the momentum going into post season play?

 

The real conference championship awaits in Frisco.

They should approach the game like this:

Everybody should play but give the younger guys more time.  Remember we have out off day saturday, so we have longer than any other team in our POD till conference tournament.  So we need to play everyone but we should use a longer bench then normal.

I feel like we see a lot of bench production, but them still playing like this is a very important game. 3-1 in pod looks better than 2-2

We're still playing to get the highest seed possible in the NCAA Tournament. To me it's simple, everyone plays. 

Keep playing to win.

Rest Hamlet, Gibson & Reese a little more than usual.  Give guys like Jackson & J.Simmons (didn't see either of them touch the floor yesterday) a few more minutes than usual.   Reward Bell with a ton of minutes for his play on Sunday.  I think we can still win.

With a full week before our 1st conference games, I wouldn't rest them at all. My biggest concern is rust heading into CUSA tournament. We've lost our last two games after 7 days off. Play to win. They have a full week to rest after that which is a lifetime for a college athlete in the condition these guys are in.

We have not secured an NCAA bid.  Our resume still stands as a bubble/at-large.

Ideally, IMO, we get up by 20 then find a way to rest our guys as much as possible without losing control of the game.

Charlotte is playing to get a bye, so I seriously doubt we rest the starters that much. Not to mention, why would you want a starter rusty going into a 7 day lay off before a quarterfinal

Who wants rust? In my mind, I'm thinking we play this game to win, and you don't start thinking about rest until about 10 minutes left depending on how the game is unfolding.

I wasn't necessarily asking about rest because I thought they needed it...more so that I was afraid of an injury in a somewhat non-necessary game.

I'd like to see 15-20 minutes each for Smart, J. Simmons and Draper...we're likely going to be mostly a 6 man rotation in the conference tournament/beyond, but it'd be nice for those three to have some good game minutes and maybe confidence if needed. 

also maybe design a few added minutes of Gibson on the ball...the offense tends to sleep without Hamlet and Mo just hangs out on the perimeter when he's in as the 2. Gibson isn't the play-maker and facilitator Hamlet is at the 1, but he's so quick and can get to and finish at the cup. could probably get away with a small line for a few minutes with Mo as a selfish 1, Bell and Jamiah attacking the rim and Smart and DJ spotting up for kick outs.

Why would it be a six man rotation?

Eight played against WKy in the biggest game of the year. Admittedly I don’t know how many minutes DJ or Smart played, but especially DJ usually gets meaningful minutes.

No reason to even consider us as a Bubble/At-Large. Agreed winning these 5 straight could improve our NCAA seeding to 10/11/12. Even if we beat Charlotte then lose in the CUSA Championship we might be semi mentioned in last 4 four in but I doubt it. CUSA down year aside from WKU/LA & we have no quality wins. If we could've pulled off VCU, Utah State, RI, & or OU we might've been a legit bubble team.

Because in tournament play your rotation condenses. Your top guys play as many minutes as they can, and the rotational guys get whatever is left. Regular season is a marathon, single-elimination tournament games are sprints, or something like that.

I think you have a point, but I was pretty uneasy watching Mo being primary ball handler the few times it happened on Sunday.  He seems little bit "sloppy" (for lack of a better term) with the ball and even lost it once or twice to WKU, thanks to some of their quick hands.
