Agree but 5'9" is still 5'9". Kihei shot 37.5% on 2's & 3's last season.

He took 184 2's compared to 72 2's last year (shot 36.1%). Marginal improvement. He can't finish among the trees like taller players. Speed & strength help but he's still got to put it in the hole.

If we can look back a year from now and see Kihei took about 80 2's and 95 3's and averaged 8 plus assists then the Hoos probably had a great season in 2020-21.

Check out the link to Stepien Shot Chart - Put Kihei & look at the 2019 results through 1/12/19. Don't know why there's no 2020 data (unless the service is suspended) but given the relative consistency of Kihei's shooting percentage, the data is relevant IMO. Kihei had 5 baskets inside the lane to go with 14 misses. Suspect this past year similar to his first year in shot selection.
