PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Is one of THEE most asinine things I've ever heard.

Its an idea a few "experts" have come up with that states that its harder to shoot in a dome than it is an arena because of a lack of backdrop.
October 20th: National Kenneth Guiton Day
I have seen statistics that seem to back up the idea.
Tyshaun Taylor is a believer.
^^^Hopefully he's still a believer after tonight.
Faux, just because last year's Final Four was perhaps the worst in college basketball history doesn't mean it was the dome.
And if there's anything to the Tyshawn Taylor dome theory, he's struggling in domes because its in his head now that everyone is talking about it.
"It was the domes fault" is a poor ass excuse for playing poor basketball. If you are an elite, big time basketball player there is no difference between a dome and an arena.
Scoonie Penn was just 10 of 40 for his career in domes I believe. Dude could ball.
I'm not just thinking of last years Final Four. I think Reliant Stadium (last years location) is particularly bad for basketball but it isn't just last year that I'm basing this on. I'll try to find something on the interwebs later.
@Jake: Tyshawn apparently hadn't even realized it until a reporter asked him about it right before the UNC game... not saying domes are a huge deal, but after having played in a bunch of different venues, those with the higher ceilings and deeper site lines behind the hoops were harder to shoot at. It definitely took some getting used to.
Deshaun didn't realize it until the first FF practice!
