The 2011-12 Wolverines went 24-10 and 13-5 in the tough Big Ten Conference despite using their bench for only 16.7 percent of the available minutes, per KenPom.com. How low is that compared to the rest of the nation? Consider this: only Youngstown State used its bench less (15.4 percent).
It's amazing our starters stayed as healthy as they did last year. As much as you hate to take your starters off the floor, it should help reduce the risk of injury.
Just over a month until the first game vs Slippery Rock (November 9th), can't wait!
