There is a very high probability that Marquette will be a worse 3P and FT shooting team next season.
Wojo inherited an empty cupboard.  He needs 5 years to rebuild. Things will look a lot better by 2025.

1- Markus was also very inconsistent from 3. MH had 7 conference games of 18 in which he shot over 40% from beyond the arc. Doesn’t sound terrible (for his abilities of course), but 4 of the 7 were the last four games of the season. For the first 14 conference games of this season Markus shot over 40% from three in only 3 games, including 3/12, 4/12, 4/18 type of performances.

2- That said, with regards to the “driving and initiating contact” I believe you are right, we will see much much more of that next season. Thing is though, that is when you will also see a ton of the “we can’t shoot for crape!!” and “this team can’t shoot free throws!!!” posts all over this joint.

I have to be honest.  I have heard a lot of criticisms about Markus, but "inconsistent from 3" is certainly a new one.

As Jaybee loves telling us, it's about ft rate rather than straight up percentage.  Markus was great at drawing fouls and great at making his fts and he will be missed, but if the team identity becomes more drive orientated rather than three point shooting, our ft rate can skyrocket. 

Something to keep an eye on.  Buzz loved to stress paint touches, I broadened it up to just getting inside the three point line, and last year there would be stretches of  as many as 4 or 5 straight possessions where the ball never got closer than 22 feet 1.75 inches to the basket.  Just passing around the perimeter, high ball screen, and Markus 3.  That won't work now that Markus is gone.  We'll still have to shoot our 3's at a respectable clip, but we should be more selective about when we chuck.

BTW, the 3 point line was 22 feet 1.75 inches last season.

Last night Koby and Symir went on instagram live and were answering questions. Some asked how koby's thumb is.

He said that is thumb was feeling good but if he gets hit hard there in a game he might need to come out for a couple plays. Said he hurt it last year in practice when someone ran into his hand during a shooting drill.

Both were asked about DJ and both seemed really happy he is here

Koby didn't say he thought he needed surgery?

I wonder if as elective surgeries get postponed that he’s going the Theo route of just dealing with it instead of missing time.

I was hopeful a lot of his struggles were thumb related. Maybe it will heal some with time, but was hoping we’d see him with ab healthy hand.

A recent article (don't recall which one) definitely said that Koby, Theo and Greg all needed surgeries they were unable to get at this point. 

Speaking of which - just send these guys to Minnesota to get these surgeries.  Elective surgeries open back up next week in MN.  Need all three of those guys healthy from day 1.

Yeah, I think it was when Wojo was discussing every player on the roster a week or two back. Which is why I wondered if Koby had mentioned it about himself, which he apparently didn't, which is a little surprising if he actually needs surgery.

Milwaukee isn't far off. Surgeries that weren't being done are now taking priority for COVID testing over some symptomatic patients. Hospital budgets are getting hammered and the only way to balance the profit margins is surgeries.

Theo posted a picture on his Snapchat in hospital robes, could be getting surgery?

I'm not thrilled with Wojo's results but lay off Koby.

Koby is busting his but to play as well as he can for our team. I'm sure he is a first class person like Wojo and the rest of the team. Outside of wins and losses this is a coach and team we can be proud of as MU fans.

You know my dentist is a really great guy and respected by everyone. The only small issue is he can not fill a tooth but he is a first class person.
