They're tied for 241st in the nation in 3 pointers attempted per game at 16 per, only 1 more than Ohio St. They shoot it well but they don't rely on it. I don't know how else I can say it.
You beg the question that reliance on treys is reflected by lots of attempts. It was demonstated today and Thursday by low percentage on threes and two losses. The high percentage on threes is what turns an ordinary team into a threat.
The second half looked better because they drained a few threes. And the Bucks had already done their heavy lifting.
But what do I know. I obviously don't have a clue.
