Think you could make the argument that UVA offense has relied too heavily


on jump shooters in the past, also producing ugly offensive performances when they were cold from the floor. If nothing else, this team seems to have multiple options at converting post-ups and drives. The 3-pointer remains crucial in today's game, and could be an issue when other teams get hot behind the arc, but, the ability to convert high percentage 2-point shots and press opponents in the paint and off the dribble will pay dividends and maybe negate some outside shooting. At the least it should certainly given outside shooters better spacing.

How many times over the last two years did we see the UVA defense hold opponents scoreless for several minutes, but an inability to get shots to drop from outside limited UVA's ability to open a wider lead as well? We need 3 point shooting, but probably not to the extent we have been forced to rely on it in the past.
