Shouldered the job of being a captain of a score of newbies mixed with some dysfunctionals. Scored an average in points that was more than his Dayton and Bradley years added together.

I'll give you this. He appeared to wear down as the season ended, but who wouldn't considering the slackers that he was covering for.
I know people mention on here how someone played virtually every available for a team or in the Cheney days at Temple they played 6 guys all the time. Those people are the exception not the rule in terms of basketball. Because one guy can do it, doesn't mean everyone can. These are kids not robots.

I absolutely believe logging all those minutes took their toll on Josh and especially the freshman. Having an actual bench this year is going to do wonders for this team in terms of giving the starters some rest and keeping them fresh for the season.
