A big factor in this is awareness. Watching these game, it is clear to see that our rookies seem to get lost in the moment during close games. We've given up big runs to opposing teams because of this, and it happens more frequently with a rookie in, and Moore in the lineup as well.
I'm all for the young guns getting PT and experience, but it seems we lose the ability to gain a lead with them on the floor. I think they get plenty of burn toward the latter half of the season, if we have a losing record of course.
I'd like to see them get some more playing time as well... at least Nicholson anyway. But overall, I think we have a good group of rookies. Hopefully we don't throw the season away before hand so they aren't playing in meaningless games. Nicholson obviously has some potential. Why not try utilizing him early before we fall too far behind?
