I hate to resurrect this from yesterday, but when did it start? Same meh, at best, starting lineup every game and every 2H (unless I’m forgetting one). Almost no effort to see if putting another guard besides Kihei or Reece in with the starters would help at all.
What is the nature of the experimentation we have done? It’s basically – “Gee, I wonder what combination of our two international prospect lottery tickets who never paid off plus walk on will look the most like an actual ACC basketball team” ?
Tony has done vanishingly little actual lineup experimentation.
More stats — 9 of our top 10 lineups (over 64% of total possessions) in the past 5 games have both Kihei and Reece. The 10th has Kihei + Malachi. Is that an experiment ANYONE besides Malachi’s friends and family wanted to see? (Don’t lie).
Our lineup experiments have basically been this: Can Papi be a competent back-up 5? Hmmm, what about now? Ok, but what if we do it against a MEAC team? Ok, interesting, neutral court? Hmm, still no, what if we do it on a Monday?
(Sorry to come off as a jerk, but I don’t think there’s any evidence that Tony has done any meaningful lineup tinkering)
