If DW is getting 20 + mins a game then we are in for another losing season..I support DW, b/c he is an Illini , but he has done nothing to warrant those type of minutes since he got here...We needed TJ and AG to get most of his mins last year and if they don't play more this year then we will see the same record as last year..Ayo Trent Giorgi will all play over 20.
Feliz and DaMonte are the next most likely. Put Kofi here due to our “need” also.
Then it’s a toss up between Griffin Jones and Kipper as to who gets minutes. This is where we really need improvement
If BBV provides solid backup that’s icing on the cake.
Some here look at DW with orange-colored glasses but the reality is he is a liability on the offensive end and far from a lock down Defensive player as some say or hope for..
My guess is Ayo, Trent, Giorgi and Kofi average 22-28 mins and Feliz,Jones and Griffin get 15-20 mins...DW and Kipper should get @ 5-10 mins maximum..
JMHO, and I have watched and replayed games since DW got here and this opinion is my own and not to single DW out, but many here think of DW and hope for more HRF play from him...That isn't happening and we need to give TJ and AG a FAIR shot at extended mins as they actually can score and make the opponents defense respect them..
