There may be a more pleasant way to spend two hours than watching this team, but I can't stop thinking that this game or the next is where they turn the corner. So as painful as it is, I'm in line for the punishment. The first 10 minutes of the game yesterday was very telling to me. They shot 3's and they hit them. Wow, I thought maybe we had forgot what that arc was doing on the floor. After the Depaul game I checked on our stats concerning the 3 point shot.
Last year in Nov. we averaged 25.8 3pt shots per game at 32% . This year in Nov. we averaged 16.8 at 33.6 %.
In Dec. last yr we averaged 25.4 shots at 40.1 %, This yr 20.4 shots per game at 30%.
Last Jan. we averaged 23.2 shots at 35.8 % This yr. so far in Jan. we averaged 18.4 at 31.5 %
Overall we are averaging somewhere around 17 3 point shots a game. Our lowest since 1999. The percentages are not off by a bunch overall.( throwing Dec out) I say we need to be shooting more. Just my opinion. i would love to hear your thoughts.
