Cougs Manage Split in Bay Area

Playing without sophomore Reggie Moore, who has been suspended indefinitely after being cited last month for possession of marijuana, the Cougars managed to overcome a nine point halftime deficit in a 61-58 victory over Stanford.

The Cougars, 13-5, have an important three game homestand against Arizona St, Arizona, and Washington to round out the first half of Pac-10 play.
In those games, I'd like to see Coach Bone insert Brock Motum for more minutes, at least 20 minutes per game. Motum is shooting 67-percent from the field and 46-percent from beyond the arc, but he is averaging only 14 minutes per game during Pac-10 play.
Motum does more than just score points; he spreads the defense with his long range capabilities. The Cougars went to Motum early in the second half against Cal and he provided five quick points, then found himself back on the bench, replaced by Abe Lodwick.
I understand Lodwick is a catalyst for the Cougar defense, but I don't see why both these guys can't be on the floor at the same time!
