Peter Benoite, the team captain, played just a total of ten minutes (six in Manchester, four in Vermont) over the weekend. I really wish a sports journalist would look into this and get us an explanation. Is he hurt? Sick? Is he too slow to compete with these teams? Is there conflict with the coach?
Another playing time note: Againsnt Manchester our three point guards, Anderson (our best player), Benoite and Riley combined for 25 minutes in a 48 minute game. Riley didn’t play at all. It looks like the other 23 minutes of PG minutes were split between Williams and Ferguson, but I don’t know for sure. Maybe it was an attempt to compensate for a lack of height in the front court by going big in the back court – but Crookshank only played 24 minutes… so… I have no idea.
