This is probably it.Defense. In his presser Brad talked about how far AG has come defensively, but you can tell he has more faith in others on the defensive end still. Easy to see he considers his best defensive combination to be the starting lineup. I can't remember exactly if Kipper saw any time the last few minutes (don't think he did), but if he did I think BU likes his length on defensive end especially with the length of NW. He also mentioned during the presser that the plan was for Kipper to get plenty of minutes (again because of NW's length I think), but his quick foul trouble squashed that.
That being said, AG was truly our one offensive weapon in the second half (17/40 pts). We didn't really play great defense down the stretch either (16 pts in 5 minutes given up after Griffin was out). Sometimes coaches can't help themselves. I still think our heads weren't in the game defensively and that has to improve because the next 3 games are tough to win.
