Tre Jones may be the best guard defender in the country. Can tenaciously press full court by himself. Our guards are tall and we don't have any single guard that can handle the ball for 40 minutes. Frank is prone to turnovers and sloppy passes, and Eli & Buddy won't be able to get by Jones.

Will Battle play 25+ minutes at PG? Will Jalen get a shot at redemption and play great, or will he be on the bench the entire game?

Really hoping Jalen gets a chance on the floor on Saturday and makes the most of it.

What are the odds on whether he even takes off his sweats and shirt?

Are you suggesting that the guy who leads the team in turnovers per minutes should go up against the "best guard defender in the country"?

I think JC is going to get some minutes. How many depends on many factors primarily how he does. Of course, hoping he does well with them.

I think JC gets some because of several factors:
The pressure is off a little. Lville win was huge.
Developing JC may reap benefits later this year, but for next year it is huge. Even if it is a disaster, the 2 minutes can be used as a learning tool (and got to hope he is moving beyond those turnover machine performances).
It seems like it would really help JC's motivation. Posters here are reporting he is taking it hard. I hope JB doesn't lose the kid, just so much potential.

me too! I definitely hope Jalen gets on the floor and makes the most of his time and only that will help his chances to play and that's what I want for him
as for a prediction for the Duke game I would say he gets 2 to 4 minutes
