    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?

    Yeah, Beilein discussed that today. He said early in the season you are worried about getting starters enough minutes to build their endurance. Seems to be less of a concern now. I do think we’ll see Johns a bit, but who knows.

    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.
