Here's your answer on why he isn't playing.



For those that can't see the Tweet, Benson says:
ISU coach Dan Muller said William Tinsley, who scored 21 points in last year's game at Loyola, has "got to play better than other guys for an extended period of time in practice" to return to the rotation. Tinsley hasn't played last 2 games and only 5 minutes at Valpo.

benson asking the tough questions!! (i jest) but he asked about tinsley in the presser. basic answer, he has to play better. making shots would help, but he mentions defense and rebounding.

He has so much talent.
Or does he?
There’s a difference between being athletic, and possessing great basketball talent.
Exactly. And if you're an athletic but limited basketball talent, you damn well better be outstanding rebounding and defensively. And maybe pass up the wild 3 and make the extra pass. Anthony Jones.

I'd personally like to see him inside the arc more, maybe back up or share time at Chastain's position.

Many people on this board believ athletic = being a tall/long, wirey basketball player that looks the part.

Is Tinsley long? Yes. Does he look the part? Yes. Is he fast? Quick? Have lateral quickness? Explosiveness? Agility? Could he play football, soccer, or hockey at a high level? What makes him athletic (in the basketball sense)? What are his skills? Seems to me he’s a jump shooter who takes 3/4 of his shots from behind the arc. He’s not going to score off the dribble or with his back to the basket. And guess what?? That’s ok. He can still be valuable but he needs to be more aggressive and work harder without the ball, cutting, crashing, defending, going for 50/50 balls, shuffling his feet, rotating, screening, erc. While he’s at it, he needs to shoot better.

:text-+1: The definition of talent and athletic is another low hurdle at ISU.

With Taylor probably being a RS, Tinsley will be needed to play when the bigs get in foul trouble and Chas minutes are probably maxed out with a questionable knee. Same with JJ playing for Key. Even if Key finds his stroke..knee issue will limit his minutes.

Really like the overall game from Will last night. Much more dialed in on both ends of the floor.
