Starting 4 seniors and 1 junior can, and does, work if you have the right players. JD Barnett's 1984-85 team started at least 3 seniors and a junior. Shaka's 2010-11 team started 4 seniors and a junior, and went to the Final Four. This year's group was not the right group. If Coach Rhoades learned anything, I hope he learned that sometimes you have to put loyalty to the side and adjust lineups to get the maximum performance out of the team as a whole.I hope coach learned that starting 4 Seniors and 1 Junior doesn’t work. Don’t be so loyal. The best player should play!!!
