    Why does every team go crazy from 3 at the end???

    I mean this getting really ridiculous. West Virginia erased a 20 point lead by making prayer after prayer, Kansas banks one in at their place, Texas big goofy international guy hits one as time expires to tie, and then last night Johnson was making contested 3's five feet behind the line. I mean really is anyone ever going to miss one at the end of the game against us?!

    On a side note, is this the worst deffensive team statistically in the last decade? Sure feels like it.

    This X 1000. Can someone with some free time look into the 3 point shooting percentage "down the stretch" of our heartbreaking losses? Everyone's gotta be shooting about 90% behind the arc against us and a lot of them are contested, deep shots.

    When we give a clinic on 3 point shooting, i guess they learn something.

    I just chalk it up to the fact that God hates ISU. The body of evidence to this point is pretty overwhelming.

    KU hit shots that they don't normally hit, that's for sure. I think our game plan played the odds on that and lost.

    So did Okie State, Texas and KU in Lawrence. Even WVU went ape **** but luckily it wasn't enough.

    Edit. Even Gray from Tech hit 2 killer 3 pointers in the final 3 minutes in that loss and he's a ~19% 3 point shooter.

    Re: Why does every team go crazy from 3 at the end???

    It seems worse than it is because we're getting the initial stop but can't secure the rebound. When they crash 4 to the boards and know we aren't going to try and get out in transition there's no threat so why shouldn't they crash the hell out of our undersized lineup?

    Throw in the fact that we continue to go under screens to give open looks and it isn't a secret why opponents shoot the lights out against us down the stretch. An energetic team can make up for some fundamental issues. When you're fundamentally bad and tired on top of it it's a nasty combination.

    Some of the three's KU put up were extremely well guarded, and probably qualified as bad decisions before they swished through the nets. It is what it is.
