Everyone is comparing Washington to Girard but I think the more important comparison based on this game is Goodine. Brycen is on the bench and Boeheim is looking to improve the rotation with Washington getting a shot. I'm not sure this is a long term decision, but until Goodine gets more comfortable on the court we might be seeing more of Howard. Have to feel great for the kid as Boeheim is giving him more of a shot. I am guessing it has something to do with Goodine's play as well as what they've been doing in practice.
