Ten of the 12 players played for at least 14 minutes.

“It'll be a continuous experiment to see who is playing their minutes well and who is getting the job done,” Kruger said. “We just have to keep grooving defensively and keep taking care of the basketball, moving the ball and making good plays for each other.

“We are not set on anything by any means because players will determine that and dictate that as we get on deeper in conference and non-conference play.”
