Shooters shoot. Kam was hitting at the beginning of the game, and kept shooting. Joplin wasn’t hitting at the beginning of the game. They both kept shooting, and results switched for both.

Hard game.
.

Especially since they were the only two whoi could make a shot.

Every game they have scoring droughts usually by chucking threes.
Two points in last 7 minutes.  Believe 1 for 15 from field.  That’s brutal.

Tw points for final 8 minutes, is that even possible.


And yet I was ridiculed relentlessly for pointing this out yesterday. Cannot just launch indiscriminately when we need buckets.
Muggs it is not personal, people like to joke around. As for the offensive droughts, get used to it. Shaka is a D minded coach and up tempo, sone times that type of play will lead to offensive droughts, specially if our point guard is having a hard time shooting from the outside. Kolek hits 2 of those 3's and game would have been different down the stretch. Kolek is great and I love how he plays but needs to be a threat from outside else, teams will adjust like they did last year.

Yeah. This is Markus all over again. Does Kam take some aggressive shots? Sure. What’s the alternative though? A tentative OMax trying to straight line drive into a waiting 7’4” guy? Well…

I'm with you wades. I'm generally ok with Kam's boldness, though I agree with Shaka that some of his "from outer space" shots might need to be reconsidered.

As always, our outside shooting would likely improve if we were consistently more effective at slashing and forcing the D to compress.

I want Kam to shoot a lot. That doesn’t include shots 5 feet outside the three point line with 20 seconds on the shot clock. I think we (and he) can do better.

It's sickening watching another poor shooting Marquette team. Kiosk looks the same as last year, a left handed Driver but he can't score.

Honestly, I don’t trust left-handed drivers either.  They always take wider turns

And when the make the wide turns around kiosks, other shoppers pay the price.

Oh...when he capitalized "Driver" I thought he meant Donald Driver. Which confused me.

Donald likes to drive strange to his bedroom while portraying himself as a family man but that’s another topic
