I honestly think this was just attributed to a shooting slump. These dudes are missing the wide open shots they were hitting earlier in the year. I don't expect them to shoot 45% from 3 as a team, but man balls clanking off the rim on wide open look after wide open look, you have to think a couple of the losses are different games if the open shots go in. I hope whatever it is they bounce back, using the Nebraska win without 2 starters as the springboard. If nothing else, Carton got thrown into the fire a bit more and has responded pretty well for a kid that young so his confidence has to be building.
Side note...has anyone discussed the insane ability of Carton to time his jumps and block shots? Man he has swatted some layups lately against guys that outsize him just due to his timing and ability to reach without getting into the players body drawing a whistle.
