My personal opinion regarding the opponent 3pt % is that we over help on defense. At some point if you are guarding man to man you have to expect folks to be able to defend their assignments without helping; the other part of it is that if you are going to double down then come down aggressively and don't be stuck in no man's land between actually helping and guarding the guy on the 3 pt line.
I'd rather force the offense to take a challenged shot inside 1:1 vs leaving someone wide open for 3.
With where things are heading with allowing players to benefit from their likeness this is idiotic and they should just be lenient.
That said, I still think this is idiotic as wouldn't everything had been on the up and up if Chase's girlfriend had gotten the loan directly from the 'family friend' and kept Chase out of the equation?
I agree on the redshirt so that he can get back to more in line with the development he should be at his age. Work on ball handling and jumper shots this year.
No, I said I wanted him to work on his pull ups and finishing at the rim vs 3 pters.
"Muhammad made a team-low 52.4 percent of his shots at the rim and hit just 29.8 percent of his 2-point jumpers, per Hoop-Math. He often lacked control with the ball on drives, leading to poor shot selection, turnovers or stagnation in the offense."
Not saying he has to shoot it at a high volume but be a legitimate threat at least. One of the few things that Keyshawn Woods could do last year that others could not is the pull up mid range off the dribble. My personal opinion is that if you are a threat to pull up then then can play off you as much will better enable a drive to the basket. Just makes you a better all around offensive threat.
Going back to the Thad Matta days I always feel our team jacks up too many 3's. Loved Michael Redd's game (no surprise given my handle) where he could get you on your heels with crossovers and then pull up for an easy foul shot range jumper. Maybe they're anticipating more open looks on the wings and less need to create with the true PG's, but again the team is better with more folks able to take teams off the dribble.
Cherry popped!!! Thanks amigos!
On Sportscenter w/ SVP last night they showed that four times OSU has played MSU when favored by 20+ (IIRC)... and MSU is 4-0 in those games. Hopefully the betting fix doesn't have any influence...
OT, but DJ Funderburke continuing his suspension streak... https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/27739365/dj-funderburk-suspended-breaking-nc-state-wolfpack-policy
Love the commitment and the article! Welcome to the Buckeyes, Eugene!!
Maybe not but he may also have more wiggle than they did, while they had the speed/burst edge.
