We need 3 shooters

I think everyone needs 3 shooters, it's not just us. Solid defensive teams can find a way to shut down 1 scorer, and Good defensive teams can find a way to shut down 2. It's hard to shut down 3 if you have good floor spacing. If you have 4 or 5 then watch out.

Jerome + Guy + Hunter
Harris + Brogdon + Gill
Hauser + Huff + Murphy III
Alexander + Staples + Burrough

Yes, we won a bunch in 2020 with Defense, but I don't know that this team could replicate that.

We have Franklin + Gardner and we need a reliable third. At 4-2 overall and #49 Kenpom, I would grade us out at 11-9 in the ACC and 5th or 6th overall. If we continue to progress (and progress faster than other teams) then I could see 13-7 and the 4th seed like we are projected. If someone like Clark, Miličić, Beekman, Stattman, or McCorkle becomes a reliable 3rd scorer good for 10+ night in and night out then we could do even better.

  I don't think the defense is their issue. It's the offense -- AmericanHero247 11/24/2021 09:20AM
