Buckles to get his second start of the season


At his press conference today, Coach Pitino announced that he was going to start Rakeem Buckles in place of Jerod Swopshire "to get more defensive presence" in the lineup.  Whatver.

Buckles has problems staying on the court while not committing numerous fouls. If he can keep from putting his hands on people and if he can move his feet, then perhaps his athleticism will make this a good move.  Swopshire has been regressing, no doubt about that, and it's disappointing because we began to see some potential in the second half of the Kentucky game.  That said, we've been getting little or nothing from our two starting forwards recently; playing three-on-five a great deal of the time.

Don't know if this is part of a solution (Jerry Smith is still starting?). But everyone seems to realize that a loss at Seton Hall will condemn this season into the sewers.
