    Can't wait to watch Thomas. My TV guide says "finals". So if he doesn't make the finals I don't think we will see it. (I hope I am wrong).

    If Tyrus isn't in the college 3 pt shootout then the whole thing is a joke. He should probably shoot them with his eyes closed to make it fair...but it wouldn't matter.

    Agree. He has to be in it right? I mean, he leads the whole country in 3 point percentage now.....how could they not ask him? Then again, I thought Scotty would be in it last year and he wasn't.

    These contests are not designed for players like McGee who makes his shots with huge jumps after catches in the midst of play. Plus, McGee uses up so much time on his jumps that he puts himself at a disadvantage. That is why short women with set shots often do so well.

    I've only seen him in game situations. That will be awesome if he can shoot well from a stationary position also. I suppose that shouldn't surprise me because he is a good shooter from the free throw line.
