It feels like every game moving forward is going to be a new kind of experiment. We have no clue who might get minutes on a given night. On Wednesday, we saw JJ Traynor get extended playing time for the first time this season. Samuell Williamson did not see the floor. We saw a career night from Jae’Lyn Withers. This is a team with a bad record who has the luxury of trying out different things as it tries to evaluate how the squad might look going into next season.
Louisville showed some real fight in the second half, and that is about all you can ask from this bunch during the remainder of the season.
