Pretty sure we would have minutes for him next year, unless he can't play defense.
Needs to be able guard the perimeter and hard hedge on the high ball screen without fouling then rotate back quickly. If he can do that he’ll have more minutes than he’s getting at ‘Ville now.

Got to see/know Wheeler in the local pro-run going up against Nathan Knight/Armondo/Santos, ETC. Really nice kid and tends to play nice on the court also and doesn't have high motor. If he could get some dog in him he would be monster on the court with his size and ability to get up and down the court. Hope the best for the young man and WOULD love to see him come home.

If what you say is correct regarding Wheeler not having a high motor, then I can't see him in a VCU uniform. We have had enough big men over the last 10 years without a high motor, and most underperformed. Maybe that's why he isn't getting any significant playing time on an absolutely horrible Louisville team.

I'm just gonna make this a "Louisville Cardinal Death March Update"

I will be very sad when the Cardinals get their first W of the season

fwiw, Roosevelt Wheeler...15 minutes, 5 points, 4 rebounds, and an assist
