If we are shooting at an average level and defending at an elite level will be very tough t beat. I don;t think this team will ever be in the top 60 in shooting and I don't think they have to be.If we want to be a contender we need to be shooting much higher than the national average. At least in the top 60 imo. Any idea where we rank in shooting percentages?
disagree so hard. we just need to be slightly above average shooting because we win with defense, turnovers, etc.If we want to be a contender we need to be shooting much higher than the national average. At least in the top 60 imo. Any idea where we rank in shooting percentages?
So now I am making crap up. Go ahead - fact check my numbersYou know, the facts are actually available to you if you look for them. You don't have to just make sh!t up.
We outscored them 14-9 in fast break points. So no, this is inaccurate.
Did you actually read my post?
Jacking up 3's means taking a lot of them..... not necessarily that they're bad ones. If you look a stat sheet and see that a team took 100 3 pointers.... that would be considered "Jacking up 3's".... but you can't tell just by looking at a stat sheet what is a bad 3 pt attempt & what isn't a bad 3 pt attempt.You and I agree on taking bad 3 pts. Jackes up 3 ptrs = bad 3 ptrs. Good 3 ptrs = uncontested 3 pt shots as a result of sharing the basketball.
Look at last night's box score below:
LSU beat us 46-30 points in the paint for the.game.
We shot 2-12 from 3 in the second half and 9 -30 from 2 pt range while lsu 17-32 from 2.
17 - 9 = 8 2 pt. fg difference or +16 in the paint for LSU.
There you have it LSU got easy layups in transition from long rebounds on VCU's 3 pts missed in the second half.
This game should not have been that close because we outscored them in the paint in the.first half.34-28.
Lets dive into last year's schedule and look at
Sample of wins from the streak.
Dusquene score 80 - 64, paint VCU 48-28
Mason 79-63, paint vcu 42-28
GW 60-50, paint vcu 34-20
Bonny 85-55, paint VCU 39-21
UR 1st time 80-61, paint vcu 34-24
UR 2nd time 69-66, paint vcu 46-24.
Notice we decisively outscored our opponents in the paint regardless of our 3 pt shooting.
That is our offensive identity.
Ppl.here are like "No DL, we win with 3's, it can't be 2's".
I remind the old times, JD Barnett won exactly the.same way. We got into the paint and outscored the opposition at the FT line 99% of the time. Nothing wrong with fundamentally sound half court basketball. Its is tried and true formula.
That’s last season...
