I would think that these guys were told on the front end that part of the plan would be to wear down teams with shallow benches. They'll finish with more tread on their tires and a lower chance of injury. I think Petty played too much this year fatigued...It's still a little confusing with the possible rile change but it looks like he and Nimari will be able to play this season.
That's a good point, hopefully everyone with this team will continue to buy and and understand this roster was put together with the intent to make a final four run. We know that Oats will play 10-plus guys but there will be some nights where the rotation will be 10 or less because of matchups. But as you noted, its definitely a good problem to have.
