I guess I have to take back what I said last game thread where it appears Boynton is just getting down to playing his best players and not worrying about playing too many guys. Playing D. Williams, the big kid and Flavors while up 19 was a huge mistake that gave WVU the momentum that our young team was unable to regain. I cringed right away when I saw us going down the bench. This isn't rec league. Up 19 in Big 12 game with that much time left is not a time for charity. I guarantee you this one hurts bad for MB because he knows he's the one who showed to a young team we were taking the gas off the pedal.
In Boynton's defense he had a very short bench last night and with a 19 point lead was trying to buy some rest for some guys, but in retrospect it led to a huge momentum shift.
It's a tough conference with great coaches. The good news is every game has gone down to the wire, so we're not getting blown out. What disappoints me is the lack of basketball intelligence our players have. Obviously that goes back to coaching, but at some point the players have to understand the concept of not running over the defensive player when driving to the basket.
