After 198 minutes of UK basketball in the Bahamas with nothing but the same two five-man rotations, Slice Rohrssen, UK’s head coach on Saturday, mixed it up in the final two minutes to try and hang on to the Cats’ close lead against Chalone-Reims. Coming out of a late timeout, Slice sent out the game-ending lineup of Tyler Ulis, Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, Marcus Lee and Dakari Johnson. That group managed to get the job done and escape with the win. despite playing together for the first time.
In his postgame interview, Rohrssen said he made the call to, “keep from getting voted off the island.” Today’s game was the closest of UK’s five in the Bahamas and the only one the Cats could’ve potentially lost in the final stretch.
The decision to mix it up likely kept a For Sale sign out of his yard. BBN wants 6-0 this week.
