Rotation Madness

Rotation Madness

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Roy Williams made sure to use Friday's exhibition game against Shaw for what it truly was – a glorified practice. The 10th-year UNC head coach subbed in and out for a grand total of 18 different lineups.

As expected, the starting lineup secured the most time on the court (7 minutes, 15 seconds), while only one other lineup (No. 3 in the chart below) was utilized twice (6 minutes, 31 seconds).

Oddly enough, lineup No. 3 delivered a pair of 11-0 runs, while the starting group was outscored 16-8 in its two appearances.

Despite the sluggish defensive play to open the game, junior Reggie Bullock told reporters after the game that he liked the starting unit most of the rotations due to its length on the wing and in the post.

Here's the rotation breakdown:
