White should sit the bench for the majority of minutes each game. He is timid and looks lost.

Not sure what took so long for Reggie to implement a zone defense last night. For 3/4 of the game, the swiss cheese man-to-man defense was giving up easy layups and dunks. I was hollering for a zone defense before the first half ended.

Hitchon played 24 minutes - a little over half the game - and scored 29 points. This one's easy - play him!!! I remember when he signed up from Canada and a number of us expressed that he was basically a total unknown. Well, now we know.

Play him!!!

I agree that he needs to play more - if physically capable of doing so at this point. But he was far from an unknown. Actually, he's probably the best recruiting win of any guy on this current roster. Niagara, Iona, Quinnipiac, Drexel and Rider were very involved. It ultimately came down to Canisius and Siena. Hitchon was a big signing.

All of this points to the Griffs having a long season ahead.We are a poor shooting team, and the freshmen do not appear to be good enough to contribute much against quality opponents. To say nothing about our lack of rebounding and interior defense. Play Johnson,Hitchon, and Brandon as much as possible, and hope the rest can fill in somehow. Go Griffs.

I agree Hitchon signing was huge. He's probably the most under utilized impact player in recent Griff history. Only got him because of Larry Blunt, a friend ship they made while they were both at Athlete Institute in Orangeville Canada. Actually surprised Hitchon didn't go with coach blunt to Drake. Says something about the kids loyalties after signing, he didn't bail on the Griffs. Hope he is healthy and ready to go and will finally get the minutes he deserves. If he's tired take him out for a couple minutes then get him back in there. Eventually each game he should be able to play more until he's at 30 plus a game like Fritz. The 24 minutes he played last game was the most he's played all year, in a single game. Averaged 14 minutes a game until last game. I hope 24 minutes is the least he plays per game going forward, fouls permitting. Go Griffs! Beat Siena!

Hopefully the reason Hitchon wasn't playing a lot was do too he was still recovering from injury. Seems OK now, as a fan I want to see him on the floor. Better chance of winning games. Hitchon seemed OK for the last 3 games or so. Hope he is ready to go for the rest of the year. Go Griffs! Beat Siena!
