True. But go look at the games we lost even with LJ starting. No bench didn't help us, but even at full capacity we were unorganized and undisciplined. Rose has gotten more out of less talented teams.

"Full capacity". At what point this season were we at full capacity?

You mean the games where Elijah Bryant was out and hurt? Or the ones where Davis was hurt? Or the ones where Emery was hurt and/or sick?

If you want to have a conversation about why we didn't have a bench, that's an honest and decent conversation to have... But it's disingenuous in my opinion to pretend like Rose had a full deck going into this season, much less halfway through.

It's remarkable to me that some of you are unsatisfied with 22 wins and an NIT appearance when we had 1 reliable player all season, and our entire team could count Div 1 NCAA game experience on two hands.
