At this point in the season, what do you think Pope's role should be? It's obvious from playing 23 minutes in his first game on Saturday that he will be a key player for the Aggies down the stretch.
Here are a couple of comments from Coach Menzies from Tuesday's press conference regarding Pope.
"I think he is a tough matchup and I do see his minutes going in a positive direction. Every game is going to be coached with a little bit of feel, but we will have a style of play where we can go a little deeper into the bench. I don't know but I could see how Herb's minutes could go up and I could see how Hawk or Fred or anyone of those guys who are playing 30-plus minutes could drop a few minutes and be a little more efficient. In a perfect world, that is what I hope for."
It looks like Wendell McKines could sacrifice some minutes, which I think is a good role for him right now as he works on the rest of his game.
