I always thought it was crazy that Bruce gave Steven Pearl 15-20 minutes per game while Jeronne rode the pine. During his first year as a starter (his only healthy year after he transferred from Marquette) he was probably a top 10 rebounder in the country.

The decision between a scrappy but slow 6'5" power forward who couldn't shoot or handle the ball and a broad shouldered 6'7" former 4 star top 50 recruit should have been a no-brainer.

Not that it justifies giving S. Pearl minutes, but Maymon, after joining the team mid-season, had trouble embracing the role that eventually made him so successful. He, and his dad, believed he was a perimeter player, which led to his Marquette transfer. When he became eligible at Tennessee, he shot way too much and floated around the perimeter too often. Pearl played over him because his dad could trust him to do what he asked, and he embraced that role. It took Maymon a while, and a new coach to change his mindset.

You are correct about his dad, I knew he that was the reason for him leaving MU but I didn't know it was the same when he first got here. Not surprised though. Good stuff, Chris.

IIRC his dad called into one of the sports radio shows in Milwaukee after he announced his transfer and said that they expected Jeronne to be a one-and-done when he originally committed there. You're correct about him leaving because he wasn't getting minutes as a wing player.
