    CB shooting the trey

    Do you guys think this is just a couple good games of shooting? or do you think that he worked really hard on his outside shooting to prepare himself for the next level?

    Re: CB shooting the trey

    Both. Mac and Brack have both commented on this in postgame interviews. Brackins said that Coach wasn't too happy with him shooting so many threes, and that he wants him down on the block.

    Mac has said the same, but at the same time said that Brackins has really worked on that part of his game, and that he can't really tell him to stop shooting it, especially if the ball's going in the hoop.

    Brackins has been shooting the 3 very well. Although once we get further into the season and playing some tougher teams, I expect to see the majority of his shots to come from 10 ft. and in.

    He'll have to be a 3 point shooter in the NBA so I don't blame him for wanting to work on that part of his game.

    I imagine the 15 pounds of muscle definately helped his outside shooting just as much as it helped his inside game.

    He let her beat him so he didn't have to pay for it later.

    Re: CB shooting the trey

    If he can keep shooting like this he'd start drawing the posts out of the middle and make it easier for are guards to penetrate and get to the hoop or kick it out for the three.

    It so nice to think of all the scoring opportunities we now have.

    As long as he shoots them like he did the last time he was in Waco, TX, who cares!

    Re: CB shooting the trey

    People don't seem to realize how weak the draft was last year. People know that Craig walked away from a lot of money, but he may not see that high of draft status this year, even if he plays better.

    This draft will be deeper, and Craig will be 23 this draft. In a league that drafts on potential, that is ancient.

    He has to show every bit of his game. He has to show that he has developed more game than he had a year ago, just to fight the age issue.

    I fully expect Greg to allow both he and Marquis to show all that they have. I think both of them want to win bad enough that they will do whatever is necessary to take care of that.

    But for the sake of recruiting, Greg needs to let these two shine. Two draft picks will go a long ways toward helping sell kids on hie coaching.

    I agree. I remember looking at results, and it was really eye-opening to think of where Craig really stood to be drafted. I never remember the draft later, but he really left a lot of money on the table.

    And, well, he's good at it, and it really provides another solid threat in our offense.

    Man, I wish we had a game before Friday........


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: CB shooting the trey

    I don't want Craig shooting a lot of 3s as we have plenty of good perimeter shooters. However, I always thought LE's strategy of having Fizer shoot a couple of 3's early in each game was good as it pulled his defender away from the basket. Craig need to shhot just enough 3's to make the defense respect the threat. HE can doo al lot of damage in the paint when he stays there.

    Sigh

    Craig gave up a lot of money to come back. He wants to win, and he will do what is necessary to accomplish that goal. He will do what his team needs him to do.

    However, he has to think about his future as well. He will not be an on the blocks, back to the basket scorer at the next level.

    Greg knows this, and will allow Craig to showcase his entire game. If that hadn't been guaranteed, then there is no way that Brackins would have returned.

    Re: CB shooting the trey

    I was as comfortable with Craig shooting threes last year as anyone else. He has proven that he can sink them at a respectable rate. True, he's even better inside, but I don't mind the occasional three when he's open and feeling it.

    He only shot 28% from 3 last year but I get your point. He did get hot a few times and if he did work on the 3 a lot in the off season, he could be a much more respectable threat.
