OPINION: Patrick, Play Your Bench or Step Away

The Georgetown Hoyas (5-8, 0-2) have been struggling to finish games, again, and the starting five consistently looks like they hit a wall at about the 10-minute mark of the second half. Head Coach Patrick Ewing routinely runs the Hoyas’ starters like every matchup is Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Familiar late-game issues like lackadaisical defense, minimal movement without the ball, and poor shooting are directly attributable to weakened legs.

Moreover, the underutilized bench is unable to get into a rhythm and has scored only in single digits for four of the last five games.
