Three point shooting

Post by mydores » Thu Jan 10, 2019 7:32 pm

What happened to the sharp shooter that Ryan was supposed to be? I would set him and play Toye, at least Toye has a little bit of a short game. Ryan and Toye were a combined 2-12 from 3 point land. That's just inexcusable and way too may lost possessions. Even Brown can hit 1 of 6.

If there was ever a team that would have a game with no 3-pointers and end our streak, this is that team. There is no reliable 3-point shooter whom we can rely on when we really need one. This is the weakest 3-point shooting team I’ve seen at Vanderbilt since the one when VBK was our coach and Drew Maddux was our only reliable outside shooter. There was one road game in the VBK era — I think it was at Florida, or maybe at Georgia — we were 0-for in every 3-pointer until the final two minutes. Then Drew Maddux attempted an off-balance 3-pointer that swished through the net. Otherwise the steak would have ended.

Shittu should not be attempting 3-pointers. Maybe he’s just in a shooting slump, but he’s 0-for in 3-pointers this year. His 3-point attempts look really awkward and they are always short.

I thought it was at UT, but I'm not sure at all. Been a long time.

It really is a below average roster of 3pt shooters by our standards. Really, it's a poor jump shooting overall. Ryan is streaky, and really only seems to heat up when we are playing inferior opponents when he is wide open. Toye is similarly streaky.

I've been saying Lee and Evans should start, and both of them struggle from deep. They excel with effort and defense, but their offensive shortcomings allow defenses to not extend and clog the paint.

At Florida. It was one of our very last possessions at the end of the shot clock I believe.

Agree. I, too, was thinking Florida.

I really think Evans will break out if given enough time. He still plays like he knows he's coming out. He has the natural BB skills we need on the floor. Ryan keeps taking crazy out of position shots like twisting or 10 feet beyond the arc. He HAS to set himself more. Really don't have many 3 point shooters or those that can hit on a regular basis. CBD HAS to start running some set offensive sets....these guys can't play one on one offense!
