The article didn't mention Crowder, Wilson or Gardner shooting the three because this was the sentence:

"The Golden Eagles need another guard to show he can hit 3-pointers."

In other words, who is going to replace Buycks as our best three point shooter in terms of percentages this year?  Gardner may take some threes, but he aint jackin' up 100 three point shots.  Jamil shot under 30% from three his one year in Oregon, so I am not sure if we can count on him at this point.  (Although he might definately emerge as that threat.)

I think this is a legitimate concern that they bring forward, and there are really no good answers because the other two guards (Blue and Junior) aren't great at it, and everyone else is unprooven.  (Mayo, Jamail, etc.)

HIJACK ALERT!  The Buycks/3 point comment made me think of Willie Warrior.  Banned?  No longer on the board?  Alive?

I agree though that we need another guard that can stretch defenses. As much as I like the promise of Jae, JW, and DG all stepping outside and hitting a bomb, they strike me as good shooters for their positions.  They have some unique talents and cause matchup problems, but I don't know how often you are going to draw up plays for those guys to step outside or how often they are going to be in good positions to launch. Then again I havent seen the range out of JW or DG yet, and Jae's were almost seemingly all of trailers last year.
Basically agree, except that in the open practice in Cleveland last  year they were practicing jae rotating out as a guard drove, and then a hard pivot and fire out to him for the trey. The game-equalizer late vs. Cuse seemed to be that play. Now that we have more size options, I believe we can deliberately do that more often.
