We have a good coaching staff and you know they're working hard to teach good form and run tough practices. Yet, we still shoot under 30% every game from 3. We seriously may not shoot better than 30-35% in any game going forward from 3. We have the paint offense but we don't have shooters. At this point I'd be happy with 5-6 Big East wins but no way are we making tourney and doubt NIT at the moment.

Game planning against us is simple now. Pack paint with everyone. Leave 3 pt guys wide open and dare them to shoot. That and don't turn it over too much and it's a W.


Mike, our jump shooting has meant nothing today. We missed 11 free throws and 10 layups. That’s 31 pts right there. We are down 9. Forget the three point shooting for today.

At the end of the day if Figueroa and Heron shoot 10-26 including 1-9 from 3, with one assist between them, we can’t win, period.

This offense is putrid. Good D. We'd be a really good team if we were even just mediocre shooters.

Our offense/shooting is bad, but just don't believe it is this bad. If we don't show improvement in next two games I will become a believer...

They need to shoot better. It's going to be tough for them to get any assists, since the rest of these guys have trouble finishing.

I don't disagree with, Mike. Both of your points are valid. If we'd performed well in any 1 of the 3 categories (FT's, finishing layups or knocking down 3's) we probably win..
