    re: Little Andy

    While I am certainly no Corbin fan I would say that Jefferson is the only "vet" starting. All the rest are our young guys with the exception of Burkes who needs the ball more to get a rhythm and that is much better accomplished by bringing him off the bench for more touches/shots.

    From PG standpoint, its not like Lucas and Tinsley are stealing Trey Burke minutes at this point. There is no future young players at PG to play.

    Lucas is right about his shot being better than JT. Then again you could say the same about my shot...or pretty much anyone reading this for that matter.

    Our PG situation is going to be pretty dire for a while and it won't immediately fix itself when Burke gets back. He will be out of rhythm and tenative for a while not to mention 6-8 weeks behind what he should have been in terms of experience.

    Just slows everything down from a team progression standpoint.

    We really need Rush to get healthy to get some more outside shooting or teams will repeat last season defensively. Collapse the paint and dare us to shoot.

    Problem is with "vetidous" that Corbin has playing Jefferson,Tinsley, Lucas the younger guys can say goodbye to minutes.I have no faith at all in Corbin ever changing.
