Benny's coming. If you were a coach in a nip and tuck game, would put a freshman in where he is bound to make a mistake or 2 and cost you the game? You have to go with experience in those situations. I expect Benny to pick up huge PT over the next month.
That is the whole point of a rotation. To get bench guys 10 minutes a game while ensuring they are not playing at the end of the game. And ensuring your starters are fresher and more effective for that last stretch of the game.
It is an accepted practice by nearly every basketball coach in the world.
