Game conditions dictate if Matta goes past 8. Foul trouble by bigs dictate Mc Donald's playing time and Amedeo will play if we need instant offense. I think Matta decided to wait till halftime to discuss a new game plan rather then putting instant offense in.
It tells us everything we already know.....this team has won in many different ways and it is never truly consistent.
I think the Italian Stallion is interesting and could provide a spark but it is way too late in the season to be upping his minutes, especially at this crucial stage of the season.
Same with Trey.....I would like to think Matta could work them in for spot minutes here and there depending on match ups and the flow of the game but at this time of the season minutes for those guys will be hit or miss.
I am more concerned with DT......this has been discussed before but he has played a shit ton of minutes throughout the season and i think it is starting to impact his shooting %
If you look at his games, starting with Jan 26th against PSU he has shot over 40% two times in the last 9 games..... teh format is screwy but after the score is minutes played then the FG's made/attempted then the %

The previous 18 games he shot over 40% from the field in 15 of those games....many in the 50's.....
I am concerned with that stat and it just means that we need others to step up that much more the rest of the way out.....
