Bobo better take note and work on this bottom issue as there is so much great about our team but this area is in ICU mode. Come on Bobo and get this fixed ASAP Find us a specialist Shooter who is our Mr. 3 man.

Was going to do more regarding coaching responsibility theory based on the Free-Throw % compared to Field Shooting %, but I lost my spreadsheets accidentally. My theory is that the players can make charity stripes with practice, while it is the coach's job to encourage shooters and have shooting sets to get the shooter open. I speculated Bobo has forgotten this element and is not aware it is his job to have the players run sets to get the open shot and actually shoot it. When they do shot a shooting set the others will know the process to be ready to rebound based on tendencies of the shooters. I will let this go for now but we really need someone working on the offense as Bobo is doing so much to be perfect.


Interesting, that according to Ken Pom, our offensive rating is #14, so TalkOption, it doesn't seem nearly as dire as you like to claim it is.

https://kenpom.com


We get so many extra shots and have a sharp free throw %. FG% ranking for the season reveals how proficient we are in the fundamentals of shooting. Adjusting for these numbers is what the Ken Prom is using, while I am specifically talking shooting percentage not the offense in total.

Ken Pom is using total game stats, O and D along with ball control etc. Please note the differences.

Unless there is a town in Pennsylvania called San Diego that I don't know about.


No, but there is a Moscow!


Why is my East posting routed as a musing when this bs is granted relevant? Your restrictions of my postings on a public board are questionable. Your actions regarding my musings are amusing to me.

Is there discrimination here against me? LOL

Might want to file a complaint.

To be soo good at free throws and so poor at 2s and average at 3s when our players are able-bodied shooters point to the ability to get an open shot consistently. A simple solution to cure our weakness would be to run screens and in and out sets along with having a sharpshooter specialist. No bench sharpshooter is stepping up and they know we need this position filled. Our practices could provide the players who are to be relied upon but nothing to date. Train a player to specialize on 3s only and have him come in on offense late in the close games. Bobo is not getting this done or our players are not fulfilling this basic job. Gee, I wish JC and Dax would have brought a player along to be this guy but no results to date. I think our seniors know this game well enough to have found someone who could replace them if they are sitting. No mention of the 3 sharpshooters. Job position is unfilled at the close of the season.

Who will be the SHOOTIST?

What really is so darn confusing is the facts that the guys can shine at the charity stripe and yet be so confused in shooting from the field. We must be the oddest team with such a high FT% and a lousy FG%. This indicates Bobo is not getting his talented players into sets where they can shoot the open shot. My comprehension is limited but the facts do indicate we have talent but not the smarts to use them judiciously. Our gym rats must be screaming angry to accept the piss poor shooting they are taking and need to understand that the courage to shoot your shot is mandated and expected. Stop the bs flatfooted resting plays and get moving creating the screens (like Kansas did) for our players to shoot it open and win it all.

I expect a paycheck for all my work if we win! LOl

3 PT %

158 West Virginia 34 games 79.6 PPG 8.8 3PM 25 3PA 299 3PM 847 3PA .353 3P% 645 2PM 1329 2PA .485 2P% 1.24 PPS .503 FG%

Basically, we are stable in the threes. The two are were we fail and JC going inside is not the answer unless he had a kick out player waiting as they see JC go inside they are open for the kick out pass for an open 3. This play is needed desperately late in the game.

We are average in 3s and so far below average in twos. 36th in 2 attempts and 39th in 3 attempts. I think we could focus more on the 3 point shots as the money shot pays off points wise.

Kansas is 36th in three attempts at 857. But they focus on this offensively and are so much more proficient than us .403 compared to .353

Just follow Kansas's sets for the offense and we are NC.

Only because of our hustle do we get all the extra piss poor shots, we just waste them constantly with no understanding that shooting is the essence of the game. Not having the third shooter is causing the team to fold under pressure. Our opponents only have to defend against our senior guards and keep Sags busy. Sags is ok but not consistent. Having timid shooters is our undoing and this glaring weakness should never have been to carry on for so long. Bobo is to blame for this mess and he needs to step up and make this a priority. Encourage our young shooters and stop pulling them when they miss.

Yes, we should know based on practice who is good and who is not. Please tell me you are making the shooting a #1 practice. Lowest in the field, Bobo. Get the players who can shoot on the court and then train them on D. Makes better sense than turning over the ball so often with wasted shots. Why hustle on D if you are unable to convert?

If we do not have shooters forget it. Murray State is a hot shooting team like Kansas. They are ranked 25th, at 48.5 http://www.espn.com/mens-college-bask ... s/team/_/stat/field-goals

Marshall will probably go further than us as they have great shooters. Ranked 38th with .549 We are so bad that the phrase "bad" means #217 out of 351. I believe this is the lowest ranking shooting team in the field of 68.

Nothing changes as the lame ass guys pass up shooting for bs plays. They are not prepared to step up and fire. Bobo must not like our guys missing but that is the nature of the game. Wake up and let them shoot the ball. Stop losing, playing simpleton offense. I think Bobo needs an offensive assistant to help his D minded game plays cause nothing changes on offense late in the game.

Looking at the losses for answers and you notice Carter going in with no outlet passes to our players who are flatfooted. No sets were called and our guys are clueless when he does this move.

Also, bad passing that is giving the ball away and no chance to score when we are behind. In situations of deficits, you need to play with certainty and our players are playing like they can afford a loss of the ball and refuse to just SHOOT it when they get an open look. K did the shooting and they were hot, good for them but we do not even try to balance their open shooting. We are unable to bring it at the end like K did to us repeatedly this season. The game's end is where the win/loss is going to be decided and they have a routine and we have no plans. Just so frustrating to watch our players flatfooted and wasting time with a last-second attempt. So often this is repeated that I can not watch the garbage anymore. Our team is not elite in the least from the games I have watched. Our shooting is so far below average that the trashmen (bench) refuse to pick it up. No shooting drills like I suggested in order to put the pressure on our shooters. If they can not shoot against each other for recognition and playing time then they cannot shoot in games under pressure.

Section124: talkoption is ruining this site with stupidity. Are there are any stupidity bans on this site?Wrote this a while back.
ere for the Beer
And you write this garbage:

1. Because Konate is commonly in foul trouble.
2. Because Miles, unfortunately, has lost all confidence as a shooter.
3. Because West and Ahmad are playing terribly.
4. Because this team continually gives up WIDE open threes.

Hey Yo-Yo head, only you are allowed to complain? What a putz brain, go back to sleep or play with you putz puzzles cause you are not welcome here with your twitter bs.

Bob, K likes to shoot 3s. Please tell you guys to stick with them even beyond the 3 pt line as they have NBA range. All these open 3 shots are lack of instructions and make us look stupid, as when we have an open 3 our bench team will not shoot as they are still learning. Hell, I can outshoot them in positional shooting. Simply never will change as we cannot run on offense and our D is so so against good teams.

Better forget the D and practice the 3s.

Bob needs to study K's films to get a clue how to move the players around and not have them bunch up and stand still while the handler JC tries to go inside against the bigs and force a shot. Just moronic playing. No sets from JC and he is the leader. K will always be better as we are too stupid to watch them and learn.

K moved the ball with Harlem Globe Trotters circling the court and creating open looks, while we bunch up and have no clue what is going on! This is not a match as they are so confident in their shooting and have the guy sitting at the line waiting for the pass and our defenders allow this time and time and time again!!! Moronic Bob, simply dumb. I have seen enough lousy playing. These guys were out coached by BS and our guys had no idea what was going on.

Never again will I believe we have what it takes as the sets they ran were creating so many easy 3s with shooters willing to step up.
