Interesting that the PLN guys weren’t up to speed on PL tourney. I have the good fortune of a local ASN affiliate on TV, and their guys knew the PL tourney format and made a point of how that benefits LU with the short bench.
It doesn’t feel like conditioning is a problem, so far. Energy has looked good to me. My biggest concern with the short bench is foul trouble. If a couple starters pick up too many fouls early, that will hurt. If we avoid that, and continue our recent hot shooting, anything is possible, imo. 57.5% from 2 and 41.2% from 3 last night. Awesome.
