    If you want players to return in their Sophomore year, you give them some PT. If Schutt has underperformed miserably in practice then it is up to Jaden to work hard and get better. Some Duke fans think both Schutt and Reeves will go transfer portal. I have no idea.

    If we had better shooting from the eight guys in the rotation,there would not be this thread. I am for seeing Jaden get some minutes.

    Jaemyn Brakefield was given 12.5 minutes per game as a freshman. And yet...

    Yeah. I doubt our coaching staff is intentionally holding a knockdown shooter off the floor.
    My brother averaged 8 minutes a game and 9 points a game his senior year. He's the best shooter I've ever seen. Just an unbelievable marksman. And he got 8 minutes out of 3A High School in North Carolina where his dad was the coach because he couldn't stay in front of a corpse. I saw him go 18 for 21 from 3 in an honest to goodness high level rec league game. A lot of guys can shoot. But not everybody can play.

    I recall Winslow saying that Allen was a "dog" in practice. Still he played only garbage time minutes for the bulk of January and then got more minutes in Feb and particularly March- and that was nowhere near as deep a team as this year. So there is a case where a knockdown shooter was held out as a young team was developing. Not sure if Schutt is that good- but he could be improving and with Blakes 80% and Whitehead out- there are some minutes out there. Sometimes shooters rise to the occasion.

    We're talking about practice. Not a game. Practice!

    Heís got to show heís a much better shooter than Grandison to earn minutes. Jacob plays good D and is a glue type guy. He shot 41% from 3 last year. I donít see Schutt taking minutes away from Proctor, Roach or Grandison this year. But I do think he will be in the rotation next year unless both proctor and Roach return. Then he may be a transfer risk with Blakes, Foster and McCain also in the mix.

    Like I said earlier in the thread, I'm not sure this is true.

    Assume Young and Lively split 40 minutes, and that Roach, Proctor, Filipowski, Mitchell, and Grandison average 30 mpg among them. That leaves 10 minutes. Maybe all ten go to Blakes. But he's only played 5 minutes in each of the last two games, so maybe Schutt gets a few of them. If the minutes go Flip 32, Proctor 32, Roach 30, Mitchell 26, Grandison 26, then Blakes and Schutt will split 14 minutes. My point is not to split hairs over minutes, but to show that Grandison can play big minutes and there might still be room for Schutt, if Coach Scheyer thinks he can handle it.
