Hoping to see some more of Coleman-Hawkins and some of the others deeper on the bench. I don't like the idea of heading into big ten play with a 7 man rotation.

I was hoping to see more Grandison last night to be honest, I feel like he gives quality minutes when he's in. I really hope Hutch can get back this season, he could be our version of Flagler from Baylor, who was an absolute game changer last night.

We haven't heard anything concrete about Hutcherson, other than he is out with a bad back, have we? I think I read that he went to California? (maybe) to see a specialist?

Anyone close to the program or that read a lot more than me online have anything to share??

Grandison doesn't look completely comfortable when he's in the games the last couple but he also has been in for such short stretches it seems like it might be hard to get in a rhtymn. I mean he had 2 minutes last night and think he had 2 assists. Like you I have seen some nice things out of him and was hoping he could play a slightly bigger role than he's currently in. I'm glad we scheduled this game to hopefully further see which of the bench guys deserve more minutes.

He is from California so he has gone home (taking online classes) like many students have. While he is at home he is seeing local docs who have been dealing with his back issues for several years. He has played (pretty effectively) with the bad back since junior year in high school. He'll probably never be 100%, but that doesn't mean he won't be able to contribute.

Are we one of the worst free throw shooting teams? Why are we not addressing this concern? I'm sure they practice them a lot, but does anyone take time to talk about technique? Anyone see anything wrong with an individual player's form? There are lots of teams that make all their free throws. What do they do different from us? Those are free points that we consistently pass up.

Hutch is from NJ. Grandison is CA.

Hope we work on half court offensive schemes, also working against a zone, might see some this year. Seems like we might be changing some minute allocation. Giorgi if he continues, is going to help immensely.

Didn’t feel like this was going to be a meaningful opportunity to retool but it was at least something before the Duke game. Maybe watching tape and figuring out how to break that kind of coverage Baylor put on us will be time better spent...?

That certainly leaves a lot of resume building opportunities... I still don’t know what team we have this year. Still a little disappointed with the Baylor loss but I also don’t think we are going to face a tougher opponent this year. If we can pull off a win against Duke I will feel like we deserve the top 10 ranking and will want to see us schedule another tough game later.
