    Brandon Johns day! Seemed like every question was about Johns :laughing:

    You mentioned in the preview that it’s unrealistic to expect 20 minutes out of Johns and DeJulius. I was thinking something like “if we’re up by a lot at the under 8 we’ll see them with the other rotation players for a bit before the bench empties at the under 4:00.” Does that seem reasonable?

    Others have mentioned it, and I agree that it would be nice to see Johns and DeJulius get some minutes with regular rotation players. Seems Beilein empties the bench and there’s just no equilibrium out there with the five freshmen or a mix of freshmen and walkons. I’d like to see how those two function when they’re playing with guys who understand what’s happening out there.

    The other issue is that it might be even more pertinent to get Isaiah Livers minutes with the starters … especially at the 5.

    No video of Johns but some quotes from him and Beilein on him here:

    Very few people watched player pregame videos in the past, so we’ve been just shooting video of Beilein before games.
