I find myself asking this question just about every single game.  Tonight it really got to me.  How does Andre Dawkins not get to play any more than he has, much less not even get a single minute tonight?  Is there any information on this?  I've never heard of (what would have been) a McDonald's All-American player being shut out in minutes during a blowout.  I keep thinking Coach K has got to be upset with him about something, but nothing has come out that I have seen.  There's no excuse for Jordan Davidson getting to play in that first half instead of Andre.  I just can't believe his lack of playing time after looking like a promising freshman guard so early in the season.  I'm just looking for answers, anyone have any?
