he's had a formula, it includes more minutes for Rotegaard, maybe a few for Scott, and certainly when Mansel is playing that well, more for Mansel
just 3 games, with guys playing 35 minutes, I realize you get to the finals, and all the teams are playing on a bit of fumes, but especially you need guys like Roberts and Traore to have legs with having to play against bigs
Mansel deserved more minutes this afternoon. He played well. Rootegard and Scott should have gotten some minutes. Those 3 games in 3 days will stretch this roster.
I often wonder about Dan. He's well liked. If you watch his decision making he leaves you unimpressed. Whether it's roster management or something as simple as what happened at the end of the first half. UCR had the ball with 17 seconds to play and LB had 5 fouls to give. Instead of taking the air out of the ball via fouls every couple of seconds they allowed UCR to trundle up the floor run their rotation and score an easy 2. All that brain power on his staff and no one helps Dan manage the clock more effectively? Hardly the first time. Anyway, the HOF is safe..but they managed a win. Go LB.
