and have done zero to improve itI was intrigued by a stat someone posted other night about 3 pt D being bad but not as bad as expected.
I did a little more digging, looking only at conference games. While the 3pt D % isn't horrendous as whole, over the last 5 years we have been last in the conf in allowing number of attempts and number of 3 pt makes almost every year. The best ranking in those 2 categories is 12th. % ranges from 7th in conf to last
it goes to show we are shit at guarding the three
Kenyon has been posting a little on TOS. Here are some bits and pieces. Kris will be a good one as well.
Kris actually had higher vertical and was more explosive coming in. Keegan has improved his vertical by over 4” since getting on campus.
My coaching advice for both of them going into this year was defense and rebounding will get you on the floor. That being said, Kris came into this year as a better rebounder than Keegan. He has always averaged more rebounds than Keegan. While both have practiced well, Keegan has been very consistent day to day in practice. Both continue to grind, but Kris is odd man out. If he is slotted at the 3, he is behind Joe W and Patrick. If he is slotted at the 4, he is behind Connor, Jack and Keegan. Kris is in a position similar to Ahron and Tony as being the odd men out on a top 10 team. My observations on his shot in warmups is it is a lot better. I went to drop off some things to them and Kris was in lifting and getting extra workout in before practice. They both are grinders with bright futures. Kris is one of the toughest players I have ever coached and when his number is called, he won’t disappoint!
He had a 1-on-3 yesterday that he should.have pulled back and didn't.I hate to be the “some of you guys are retarded” guy but sometimes you have to. In game chat is unbelievable sometimes. I know @douglasbader thinks chat does not count, but it does.
The crowd that rips Joe W constantly is retarded. Obviously, he was not great yesterday but he’s been really good this year. He was one on one on the break and some were saying he should have pulled it back. No! No he shouldn’t! He didn’t make it on that particular play but he’s an all I’m a giant douche level player. He should most definitely take it to the rack. More times than not, a good thing will happen. He’ll make it and/or get fouled.
The worst was when people were mad he “let” Myles Johnson tip one in on him late. Johnson is 6’11” 255 lbs. Use your fucking brain. The box out crowd is the worst. Bunch of miserable fucks.
