The starting backcourt - your choice?



I love Jerry and Edgar (Edgar has pre-emptively cut off all spoken criticism from me with the Shot Heard Round the Commonwealth), but as I look at last year and the one game this year, it seems to me there is very little from a performance standpoint to indicate they should be the starting backcourt over Siva and Knowles.

 

Siva's got turnover problems as a freshmen, sure -- but have you seen that kind of passing from a point guard at UofL since, well, the 80s?  Usually we have a converted shooting guard running the point, and have for decades.  I'd rather take the risk of the turnovers and take his 5-10 assists, thanks very much.

And Preston -- his paragraph in today's College Basketball Notebook says it all:  he could start for most teams in the country.  Preston has the statistical edge on Jerry in multiple categories.  He also appears to be able to play defense with other appendages besides his hands.

 

So -- what is the argument for starting Sosa and Smith?  Experience is great, but actual results would be better and they don't seem to have those on as consistent a basis?
