Providing a little hope for our potential matchup with Syracuse's zone

A lot of the talk that we don't have much of a chance against Syracuse's zone (me included in this talk) is centered around the idea that we don't have the outside shooters to beat their zone.

I looked back at our 2012 matchup in the Elite 8, however, and found the stats surprising. That game we shot 4-13 from 3 point range (30.8%), which is not a very good percentage and one that I think our current team can at least equal.

Even more interesting, did you know who made three of those four 3 pointers? A guy we still have on the team, Lenzelle Smith Jr.! He'll have to step up if Syracuse and Ohio State both advance.
