A lot has been made of the Orange basketball team's depth this season. While there are certainly 10 guys who could contribute significant minutes on a nightly basis, Jim B has a habit of maxing out his rotation at 8 and I don't see that changing. But this comment I saw on the ESPN preview for tonight's game against VaTech.
Not saying they can't lose...we all know how Syracuse can be. Howeverrrrrrrrr, they probably have tougher games in practices running 5 on 5 than a VaTech squad will be able to attempt.
Jim B might not stick with a 10 man rotation much longer in games that count, but having 10 legit guys to run against each other in practice is just as good. Everyone will play hard. Everyone will get better. Everyone will compete because they know a spot in that top 8 is on the line.
