"We just keep rolling the guys through," Mullen said. "I don’t know if one has jumped out or has fallen behind. We’re going to keep playing them." Then, he added, "I like to play the young guys and keep giving them reps so the comfort level will increase moving forward.”
Those young guys would be redshirt freshmen Dontavian Lee and Aeris Williams. Both have played second-rotation behind juniors Ashton Shumpert and Brandon Holloway, though more on their lack of live experience in the full offense than any lack of ability. Now with home games against Troy and Louisiana Tech, those young guys ought to get more comfortable.
And, hopefully, make the coach more comfortable with giving them larger roles?
