This team is 127th in the country in offensive efficiency. Moving a guy who can't shoot to the 2 guard (shooting guard) is probably not a step in the right direction. Lyle is hitting 45% on 2’s and 26% on 3’s. Harris is 35% on 2’s and 33% on 3’s. You should have a maximum of one of those guys in the game at any one time (or you risk an opposing defense with two defenders available to help at any time without fear of giving up a jump shot to a good shooter). For what it is worth Harris has an offensive rating of 95 and Lyle has one of 96 in conference games. So Lyle’s slightly better shooting (ugh) makes up for his much higher turnover rate.
Conference play offensive ratings this year:
Looking at those numbers and knowing that the Buckeyes problems this season are offensive, there is no way that I would play a trio of Harris, Lyle and Loving and expect things to get better.
