Rasheed Sulaimon

I'm starting to get worried about him.. He looked great in the first game against Presbyterian. Didn't take a shot in the second game against Fairfield, though, he still had a major impact on the game with 4 assist and playing outstanding defense. Now last night against Mich. St he only played 12 minutes and went 1-4. More importantly, when it was time to close the game Coach K went with a smaller line up up to match up with Mich St smaller line up and kill time..Sheed was on the bench..K elected to go with Tyus/Cook/M .Jones/Winslow/Okafor. It seems as if Matt Jones has taken his spot. It's a shame because Sulaimon has TONS of potential but it seems as if he doesn't know it. He's a better scorer, defender and ball handler than Matt Jones so I can assume it's confidence issues (like last year). I hope he steps it up cuz Duke needs him to be a 6th man of the year caliber player for optimal success.
