Did porter get hurt? He only played seven minutes the whole game. Or did he just get benched to give Brito and especially Bairstow more playing time.

He was in foul trouble and then we were in a rhythm with him on the bench and there was a point of putting him back in just to put him back in. Same type of thing that happened with Bean in the Nevada game.

I think Brito played better with Merrill, Miller, Bean, and Queta than he does coming off the bench.

It looked like he hit his head pretty hard on the charging foul.

He's played this whole season like somebody hit his head pretty hard. Looks totally disinterested to me.

Totally agree. Brito looks better in the facilitator role than he does as a non-facilitating wing. He also looked better last night in that role than Porter has all season. Let's give that a shot . . . .

I don't agree. I'm not a champion for Porter, but he's been very passionate in his play. Obviously the results aren't there, but he's been upset at mistakes, foul calls, and seems engaged. Of the problems to call him out on, I don't think that's on there.

I saw Coach Smith approach Abel (who was sitting on the bench) at one point early in the 2nd half and ask him something. Not sure what he said, but Abel shook his head and then Coach walked away and Abel stayed on the bench. I didn't hear what the exchange was, but what it LOOKED like was coach asking Abel if he could go, and Abel telling him no. This was me observing from behind the bench, but 18 rows up, so take it with a HUGE grain of salt. I think Abel is hurt worse than he's letting on, and it has really cramped his playing style and effectiveness?

Porter put the back belt stimulator on when he went to the bench and it stayed on him for the rest of the game. The fall must have jacked his back up to where he couldn't play.

I think if it's that bad we should sit him for a week or two and see if he can heal it up. He just can't be effective at 60%. Brito was a more effective version of himself in his stead, and we can give more time to Bairstow and Anderson to develop them in time for the tournament. Which is all that matters now.

I believe he was sick. Coach mentioned something about him not feeling well on post game.

He also seems to get called for charging more than any PG in Aggie history. Not sure what it is exactly, but it seems to reveal some flaw in his ball handling/driving ability, i.e., he seems to just lower his head and drive at times rather than keep his head on a swivel seeking to avoid contact and dishing the ball.
