Okay, now that we've won the regular season outright...does this change your strategy vs. IU?
NCAA Tournament seeding is the only thing that is hurt by a loss and there isn't a huge difference beween a 2 and a 3 seed.
However, a chance to pay IU back from last year. A chance to beat Crean. And just the fact that these are 18-22 years olds and "how much rest do they really need?" are all valid points.
What are your thoughts? Discuss.
My thought, treat it like any other game...with one caveat. If you have ANYONE who's banged up. You sit him. But screw the "trying to avoid injury factor." You can always get hurt or injured so I don't let that change my thinking. However, for someone like Morgan who's a little banged up. I may lean on Horford for 28 minutes and Bielfeldt for 12.
