I don't see how one down year after back to back 20+ win seasons means the program is in a downward trajectory. If they have multiple losing seasons in a row, that would be a downward trajectory

THIS TEAM HASN'T GOT BETTER UP TO THIS POINT! RUN OFF FIFTY SCREENS JUST TO TAKE A THREE POINT SHOT. A ONE DIMENSIONAL TEAM. IF THEY AREN'T SHOOTING A HIGH PERCENTAGE FROM THE 3 POINT LINE THEY WONT WIN. ITS TK SCHEME! WHEN DOES TK AND STAFF TAKE RESPONSIBILITY ? LETS FACE IT THIS TEAM LOOKS THE SAME FROM DAY ONE. WHEN FANS SPEND THERE HARD EARNED MONEY THEY DESERVE MORE THAN BLAME AND EXCUSES FROM TK! FANS DONT WANT THE PLAYERS COACHING THE TEAM! FANS PAY TK AND STAFF TO COACH! HOW IS IT THAT PLAYERS TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY ON HOW THINGS ARE GOING AND TK TAKES 0 RESPONSIBILITY. THE SMOKE HAS CLEARED AND TK AND STAFF CANT ELEVATE THIS TEAM TO THE NEXT LEVEL. THEY'VE SAID IT AND MADE IT CLEAR THEY ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO DO THE SAME THING. RUN FIVE PLAYERS INTO THE GROUND BECAUSE MAYBE THE BENCH ISNT READY BUT WHO'S RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT ? IF TK COACHING STAFF WAS GOOD THEN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SUPPORTING CAST WILL SHOW? NEXT SEASON WILL BE EVEN MORE EXCUSES FROM TK AND STAFF BUT PERHAPS DECLINING TICKET SALES WILL FORCE A SHAKE UP.
Doing the same thing and expecting different results = insanity .. but let’s go rockets?

WRITING IN ALL CAPS INSURES MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT READ YOUR POST. When your bench guys provide minimal production it's hard to justify playing them more. Everyone on here gets that Coach K likes to ride his top 6 or 7 guys and often there's a debate about whether to try and get more out of the bench. Personally, having mostly been a 6th/7th man in my competitive bball days I want the bench guys to get a shot. It's always fun when that mostly forgotten player makes a couple big plays and sparks the team. Really, I think the part coach misses in this debate is the human emotional aspect of bench play. the guys on the bench are there cuz they are not good or consistent enough to play more, but their teammates are always rooting for them, so when a bench guy contributes the team feeds off that energy. NIU got a big boost from Mateen coming off the bench and hitting a couple tough shots. BG got energy from that latvian kid making a few plays. Kent turned that 20 point deficit around when Williamson came off the bench and got hot from 3. That said, all those guys are 3rd 4th 5th year players. Our bench is all freshmen.

Wright State's freshmen season stats:

F/G Holden, starter now, 28 mins/gm, 12 points/gm, 6.8 RBs/gm; Center, Basile, 15 mins/gm, 6.7 points/gm, 4.5 RBs/game; Guard Calvin, 19.2/gm, 5.3 pts/gm, 2.1/RBs/gm

Wright State record 21-5, first place in the Horizon.

You never know how quickly freshmen will make the transition from high school to college basketball. Some freshmen are not ready to contribute right away. Redshirt freshmen Saunders and Smith are contributing. Maranka is not really ready, but is forced to play a little bit because of the injury to Edu. The true freshman who was expected to contribute right away (Acunzo) is out for the season with a foot injury.

I don't see how this team is better next year after losing Jackson and Knapke. I thought Edu was going to be a big contributor as a freshman, but he couldn't score. Acunzo has a foot injury and those can be very problematic. Sometimes they never heal.

There are probably a few current NBA centers out there who left college early and therefore may have a couple years of college eligibility they can reclaim looking for a place to land. The NBA teams don't seem to want them anymore.
