In a loss to Air Force last time out, Fresno State got more production at the offensive end from backup point guard Allen Huddleston than it did from starter Aaron Anderson, for a third consecutive game.
Huddleston scored 11 points with three assists against the Falcons and over the past three games has played the majority of minutes at the point and is averaging 15.3 points and 3.0 assists, while Anderson has not scored and does not have an assist.
But the Bulldogs are likely to keep the rotation intact on Wednesday when they play Nevada-Las Vegas in a Mountain West Conference game at the Save Mart Center.
‘’Allen has been more productive here of late, but I like our rotation,’’ Coach Rodney Terry said, after the loss to the Air Force. ‘’We get some bench scoring and a lift off the bench when Allen comes in and I do think it takes some pressure off of Allen at the start of the game to be able to come in and get a feel for what’s going on out there. He can come in and not have a lot of pressure on him. He can come in and play relaxed and get in the groove of the game.
‘’It think it helps him and I think it helps Aaron, as well. I think Aaron tries to set the tone for us from a defensive standpoint and I think our guys have a lot of confidence in him from a defensive standpoint to start the game. I think it helps us in that regard.
‘’I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that rotation and the way we’re doing it.’’
