One of those Freshman had 14 points in the game last night, again practice might be dictating all of this

If you can play you should play

High school is not college or the NBA i agree however being a freshman or sophmore shouldn't exclude you from playing time on the court either. A senior or seniors who have not played up to the level it takes to get into the playoffs shouldn't really expect a coach to just let them finish it out. They should be leaders in that case and say hey i don't mind younger guys gettting some valuable minutes because i know it will help them in the long run. If they are not willing to do that then to me it just shows the selfishness of the out going senior or seniors and not the leadership yhou would hope they would have.

playing time should be the result of competing for it...

The players that receive the playing time should be the ones that have demonstrated superior ability during the tryouts, practices, and games. The best team's practices are competitive in nature in order to determine who your strongest rotation should be and to make it clear that no one's spot should be taken for granted. Playing time should never be given, it should be earned. I don't think that it would be appropriate to simply "bench" say 3 or 4 seniors who had demonstrated ability in the recent past to be a rotation player in favor of a "youth movement" or "the future", but it is always appropriate to play your best players, no matter what classification they are. If a senior has dropped off in his level of performance or never was good enough to be in that rotation, then that senior shouldn't be playing

To continue with Thomas' train of thought, which I agree with...If you're taking your better players (lets say 2 Seniors) off the court to play lesser players, doesn't that deter the development of the other 3 players that were on the court? Kids get better by playing with better players around them.

I still wish I could read the article....

there are too many unknowns....is he playing the underclassmen over the seniors because they're working harder... showing up at practices? If so, that'd be fine even if they're lesser talented players....
