Young, too, barely went to the Mad Ants, and nor was he used on the big club even as Rodney Stuckey struggled. He managed only 135 minutes as a sophomore, barely a third of what he managed as a rookie, and probably didn’t help himself by shooting exactly 21.7% from three for the second year in a row when billed as a shooter.
