Winning the conference tournament and going to the NCAA tournament is definitely not a waste, but if we want to win a game there one day you have to win more than 9/10 games during the regular season.
The point is devaluing the importance of the regular season and just going with three games in March is all that matters just isnt the approach Id want the team to take anymore.
I don't think anyone on the staff cavalierly dismisses the regular season as if it didn't matter. Truth be told it appears some of the kids that were recruited and the coaching staff needs to take a look in the mirror...didn't or will not pan out. That has led to almost no depth, and tired legs for starters etc.
The coaches job is to put the team in the best position to win games, unfortunately that has meant heavy minutes for starters. Look at Clark's numbers last 4 or 5 games...how are you gonna put him in there? He's just not helping the team. I'm as disappointed as anyone in the lack of depth...I for one did not see this lack of depth coming. Maybe it's on the coaches that they aren't preparing the depth of developing it but every time I see them on the court, it's not good.
