Just as a fundamental precept in his coaching philosphy on any level of play? BYU went up on Baylor yesterday by 10 or 12 with 8 minutes left in the first half when Tyler Haws(good for about 20 pts/game if you aren't familiar) went out with 2 fouls , they subsequently lost that lead in about 3 minutes, ended up down by 9 for the half, then lost the game by 15.
I'm just wondering if there is even one example where I can look at the results of that strategy where somebody just let guys play and substituted them based on them being tired(or just regular rotations) and not fouls. I'm guessing not, but that would be interesting to me. I guess I would just be interested in knowing how long guys in foul trouble would ultimately play in a game if left in foul trouble on average more so than anything else. It would be more difficult to judge on any other merits I think.
To me, minutes are minutes. I'd rather build up my lead or stay as close in the game longer than sub out and lose momentum early if I were a coach. It just makes sense from a psychological standpoint to me. Am I off my rocker?
