Start this kid at SG instead of Javonte Green.
He'll get a ton of open looks playing with Tatum and Brown, but knowing Brad, Nesmith will play in 2-3 spurts and get pulled after missing one defensive assignment.
Freshmen don't get to play big minutes here at Stevens University (Tatum and Smart are the lone rookies to get > 20mpg since Brad became coach). Doesn't bode well for Nesmith to beat your prediction above.
Well that post didn't age well. Brad must have read it right before the game and decided to play PP 30 minutes.
I would love for Brad to actually give the rookies a shot (especially Nesmith instead of Semi, which is what this thread/my post is about), but I suspect Pritchard's minutes are coming due to Kemba's injury. If Pritchard keeps getting 20 mpg after Kemba is back and assuming Smart doesn't get injured, I'd say that's a very positive development for Pritchard and Brad.
