Who does everyone want to see win the spot? Simpson had 9 assists in 18 minutes tonight. Brooks and Simmons combined for 1 assist in 23 total minutes. I felt the offense flowed best with Simpson, followed by Brooks and then Simmons. At the very least if Simpson becomes “the guy”, we know we’re getting a tough on ball defender who can push the break and get others involved.
I’m sort of hoping JB gives Simpson even more of a chance to lock down the position before the big non-conference games. There was no flow whatsoever to our half court offense in the first half tonight and I don’t think the constant shuffling of those 3 guys helped. I know now is the time to see what you’ve got, but Id like to see Simpson get 25-30 minutes like the other 4 starters did tonight before Maui and see what the results are.
