Put 'em in coach: 5 players who deserve more minutes

Terry Whisnant II (6'3 FR) , Florida State: 11.2 mpg Last year's Mr. Basketball in North Carolina, Whisnant entered the Seminole program with the well-earned reputation as a high-volume scorer. He admitted that defense wasn't his strength, and in Leonard Hamilton's system if you can't run the D you don't play. But Whisnant brings a couple things to the table that the Seminoles need (not to mention, FSU junior Michael Snaer has stated that Whisnant is a sponge for learning about the system on both ends of the floor). FSU is 248th in 3-pt%. Whisnant is already 2% above that, and this takes into account that he began the season like a deer in headlights and shot 1-10 out of the gate. Once he saw back-to-back shots fall against Charleston Southern he seemingly found his confidence and and since hit 9-20 (45%) from beyond the arc. The other glaring weakness to the Seminoles offense is a 26.5% turnover rate, which ranks 334th nationally. Whisnant's rate is 12.7%, and he's the only active player below 23%. To top it off he's generated an impressive assist rate (20.1%) which is rare for a spot-up shooter.
