All About the 3-Pointer?

Look. I am a huge college basketball fan and have been my whole life. If anyone else watched the second half of the Creighton vs. Arizona State basketball game, I would imagine they would have been amazed, along with myself, with how many three pointers were taken. The game was a launch fest in which there was no movement of the ball in the paint or even around the elbows. Not only was the ball worked strictly beyond the perimeter, but also there were no pick and roll motions towards the basket. If all you have to do to coach a top tier D1 program is find shooters then sign me up because that sounds great.

These coaches should seriously look into running actual plays where the pick-and-rolls are actually executed. It is apparent that you can't win a game by just shooting three pointers as you can see because Arizona State shot 7-26 from range. Start working the paint and utilizing the back board if you want to win games, simple as that.
