Should Kentucky shorten its rotation?

02/09/2017 07:45 PM

Following Tuesday’s win over LSU, a frustrated John Calipari discussed his team’s depth.

“Don’t want to shorten the rotation to five or six guys, but I will if I have to,” said Calipari. “I’d like to play eight or nine guys so they all get a chance to play, have fun, morale, all that. But you better deserve to be on that court, or… We’re at that time of the season.”

Kentucky currently has eight players that log at least 10 minutes per game and six who play at least 20 minutes per game. Is it the right move for Calipari to shorten up his bench as this team gets ready for the final stretch of the regular season? TJ Beisner, Bradley McKee and Mark Krebs discuss.
