Mark Turgeon was honest throughout his first five seasons at Maryland about his inability at times to settle on a rotation, frustrating some fans with his insistence about coaching by feel rather than formula.
It took Turgeon little time this season to find his starting lineup, one that has included three freshmen for all but the first two games. Coming to a similar conclusion about his bench is a different story.
While junior guard Jaylen Brantley's minutes have been pretty steady since he established himself as a reliable backup to Melo Trimble and Anthony Cowan, the minutes of the rest coming off Maryland's bench have fluctuated greatly.
