    Now, coach Sidney Lowe might have to start worrying a little more about how much his players have left in the tank.

    Five players are averaging more than 30 minutes per game. The first-year coach says he's resorted to shortening practices to save his players' legs.

    He's also hoping to find more contributors off the bench heading into tomorrow's game at Miami.
