The UH men’s basketball team got a well-deserved day off from practice today — they still had study hall — to recuperate from their two-game road trip. Up next for UH: Hawaii Pacific at the Stan Sheriff Center on Saturday.
Rainbow Warriors coach Gib Arnold threw everyone a major curveball against BYU on Saturday with his starting lineup of Bobby Miles at the point, Bo Barnes at shooting guard and Trevor Wiseman at small forward to join regulars Joston Thomas and Vander Joaquim.
The coach noted that while the three freshmen (Miles, Barnes and Wiseman) played similar minutes as usual starters Hiram Thompson and Zane Johnson, things could continue to change.
“Who’s starting and who’s not really doesn’t matter to me, nor should it matter to any of my guys,” Arnold said today. “Matchups play a big role in that. Guys who are giving it every day in practice, guys who are playing defense, showing tough stuff, that plays a big deal into who plays and who starts.”
Be interesting to see who gets most of the time with the first team at practice tomorrow. I’ll provide an update then — along with whether junior point guard Anthony Salter is back with the team following an expected meeting with Arnold.
