I really think there is something to this, so far at least.

When he makes his first shot or two - look out. When he doesn't, so far, the points have not come as much.

Very small sample so far - but it would be fun to track this - shooting % of the first three shots of the game in relation to total points.

Said to my wife after the first one fell "this will be a good night for Lucca". Had no idea how good it would be.

Losing overshadowed his performance - but it simply was amazing. Many, many props to him for...

A. Becoming a Cyclone
B. Staying in Ames
C. Showing his potential last night
