Almost 80 minutes a game for Pressey, Dixon, and Bell

I don't know if Dixon or Bell starts. I expect in the preconference portion of the season they will both get some starts at the 2. Reportedly Dixon plays better defense in practices than Bell so we'll have to see if Bell steps up his defense in games. When Pressey comes out of the game then Dixon will slide over to the point guard spot, just like the last two years. Ross will split time between the 3 and 4 although he could play the 2. Early in the season we'll see the freshman guards get some minutes but that will decline in conference unless foul trouble is an issue. I think the real question is where does Brown take minutes - from the 2, 3 or maybe occasionally the 4 spot if they do a 4 guard approach? Bell is supposedly more athletic and he's a couple of inches taller than Dixon but we know Dixon goes all out 100% of the time. I trust the coaches to make it work.
