I agree. Somewhere in the last 30 years this has changed. It use to be 3 fouls in the first half before you sat. Some coaches won't let a player [Sodie} foul out for fear they won't play hard defense.
I believe it started with coach Chaney at Temple. I never saw it before he started doing it. He had an outstanding freshman and he started sitting his players that year. I believe that is when it started.
I agree these guys need all the work they can get, but I kind of wish we'd push it off until next year. Let all the guys play with Tatum a couple times in real game situations and even if we don't have Tatum, I feel like it'd make more of a difference next year when we're a little closer to the NIT/NCAA.
This trip may get us closer to a post season tourney this season.
