good to see Gibbs have a nice game and the team bounced back some after the poor Miami effort. It was also the 10th time this year that we missed 20 or more three pt. shots in a game. We are currently 279th in the country in three pt. shooting% but are taking threes at the 52nd highest rate in the country- obviously not a good combo.
Shoot your way out of a slump?
And one thing I don’t understand. The announcers discussed Brey's admission that he is struggling with whether to change the offensive scheme to try to get something going even though he recruited players who he thought fit his free-flowing read and react offense. Cory Alexander said he thought Brey should stay the course, and that eventually the younger players, including Harvey, would start feeling more comfortable in the system and start converting the open looks they are getting.
I think you can make good arguments for and against that approach. However, I don’t understand why we never push the ball. Why not try to get the ball upcourt before the defense is set and get some easy looks and conversions to build the confidence of a young team and one whose few veterans are struggling at the offensive end?
