Enough has been said about the OU and KU games. I'll try to focus on what the overall numbers tell us. On to the notes...

  • Justin Mason - You have to start with Mason considering he leads the team in +/- per minute for the whole season. In Big XII play, it's not even close: he leads the team (all the main players in the rotation) in +/-, +/- per minute, and +/- per game. Wow. Looks like it's safe to say he's still the "glue guy" on this team. While it's clear he shouldn't be paired up with Dogus Balbay, I think these numbers suggest he should still be in Rick Barnes' main rotation, and he deserved more than the 3 minutes Barnes gave him against Kansas. Heck, I'll go as far to say I would not be disappointed if Barnes kept him in the starting lineup, and replaced Balbay with J'Covan Brown.
  • Gary Johnson and Avery Bradley - Maybe Johnson should stay in the starting lineup. It looks like the starters vs Nebraska will be Balbay, Brown, Bradley, Damion James, and Dexter Pittman. While I'm fine with this rotation, when you look at the Big XII numbers, Johnson has been 2nd only to Mason in all the +/- numbers. Also, I should once again add that he's still leading the team in Pomeroy's offensive rating. Bradley, on the other hand has put up one of the worst +/- numbers to go with Balbay and Jordan Hamilton. Makes you wonder if they'd be more effective coming off the bench. Bradley started sensationally in Big XII play and then has tailed off, and then ending with a disappearing act against Kansas.
  • Starting lineup - Based on these numbers (focusing mainly on the Big XII stats), I think I'd go with a starting lineup of Brown, Mason, James, Johnson, and Pittman. The only offensive "liability" here is Mason, though he's still a capable driver, a solid defender, and leads all our guards in offensive rebound percentage. Brown has three different options to go with, and he showed he can knock down the open shot against Kansas. Off the bench, you have bomb of energy, speed, and defense, with Balbay, a tremendous talent in Bradley (I think him coming off the bench would also help him relax), and Hamilton's explosive shooting. What are your thoughts on this?
