Yesterday I was surprised that Q didn't get in the game until almost 8 minutes into the game...he's our 8th man :) I know it's how we've used him a lot this year but it's hard to leave him on the bench for close to a quarter of the game especially when the offense was struggling.
I trust in Thad, always have, and I hope he starts getting Q in closer to the 1st TV time out or sooner. Against Wichita St., who doesn't give up many points, and teams like Louisville (if we get there) we'll need more minutes from Q. Even if we lose a little on D, he is so hard for the other team to guard and can stretch out D's so much that it opens things up and gives Deshaun and everyone else a lot more space, even if he himself isn't scoring or shooting that well.
Vs Wichita St I'd really like to see a lot of time with Sam, Q and Deshaun all on the floor at the same time with Craft and whoever is needed for the defensive match-up situationally (Shannon, Lenzelle or Amir/Evan). Sam, Q and De can all shoot the 3 or go around you. So tough to defend.
