    Lowest Field Goal Percentage on Team

    I was surprised when looking at the stats that Brock Jacobson has the lowest field goal percentage on the team. He is clanking them off the rim at 28.1% field goal clip. That is over 6 percentage points lower than anyone else on the team. For three pointers he is shooting slightly better at 29% which makes him the better from the arc than only McIntosh 28.6% and Clark at 24.5%.

    Wasn't the book on him great pure shooter, but needs to work on quicker release, can't create a shot, but will knock down any looks he gets. Liability on defensive end but can spark offense with his shooting.

    Unless his shooting percentage doubles I don't see him seeing the court after this year.

    He won't play next year unless he loses some baby fat and becomes a sleeker speed cat. Even then, he'll only play during mop-up time. He bulked up too much and now he's too slow to guard anybody. He's not an athletic specimen compared to about anybody guarding him, so he can't get his shot off. Oh well, at least he's a good free throw shooter.

    That's because half of his shots get blocked.

    When he is put in as a shooter he has to shoot.

    Problem is that he hasn't been a shooter so its hard to know why to play him

    He is also coming in at the end of a game when he is cold and is forced to take 3's in desperation when everybody else on the court knows that is what he is going to do. No question he should be on the bench and stay but he isn't exactly placed in the best situation to succeed.

    I think the Brock Jacobson experiment has run it's course. He needs to ride the pine if you ask me. I'd really like to McD get on to McIntosh about taking more of an interest in scoring, either by shooting it or taking it to the whole, and giving less PT to Brock. Most times when he's out there he doesn't seem to be even thinking about scoring.

    That is some of his minutes but most have come in the flow of the game.

    Re: Lowest Field Goal Percentage on Team

    He hasn't had an ideal season, to date. In the time he's played I think he's also proven that he is one of the better passers on the team. Some real nice bounce-passes and looks inside. One of the few guys that moves the flow of the game down low. As for shooting - he'll get there. Heck, he's a red-shirt freshman only a couple of games into his first season. You know this coaching staff, especially in the offseason, will get a chance to work with him and improve the speed of his release.

    I think part of it, too, is that the passes aren't getting to him quickly enough. When he's open it seems like it is a bit lathargic in moving it around the perimiter to find him when he's open. You see some teams really able to spap off quick passes to find open shooters - sometimes go inside out - and we really aren't at that point....yet.

    Plus, speaking of defense, he played more than 20 minutes at Missouri and guarded their top shooter. Also, for a couple minute stretch guarded their top scorer. And, gave up zero points during the game. He'll never be the quickest guy on the court but he can provide solid minutes.

    Re: Lowest Field Goal Percentage on Team

    If you watch him shoot pre-game he knocks them down off the dribble or coming off picks. He is a much better shooter when he catches and releases quickly, it's when he is standing and catches then he looks like he takes a dump and shoots it in slow motion.

    Exactly, McD cited the defensive job Jacobson did as one of the reasons Rashon Clark didn't play much in the second half. Give the staff time to develop his niche role; Jake Sullivan wasn't much for defense either, though he did have a knack for getting his shot off in traffic. It'll come...

    Sullivan had a knack for getting his shot off as soon as he was inside Hilton. He usually made it too.

    It'd be nice if Jake could come back and work with the guards on that. But, some is natural and tought to teach.

    Re: Lowest Field Goal Percentage on Team

    I tend to agree with a lot of what you are saying, but this year was the season for Brock in my opinion if he was going to establish a spot in the rotation. I mean we have three scholarship guards! That is getting doubled to six next year. Where's his minutes going to come from? What's the difference between he and Staiger except Staiger is taller and thus will at least be able to get his shot off easier. Undoubtedly Boozer is more athletic. The 2 spot becomes very full next year and I think Brock is going to be the odd man out.
