4 open schollies?

Is Tristan confirmed as heading out, or is that just a technicality due to Gabe being a senior who hasn’t publicly said he’s returning?

Great to have him back!
Question - not meant to be dig at him. How do you shoot 39% from 3 and then 42% overall. Don't think you see stats like that very often.

Not sure of the reason, but Jaz went from really struggling to rebound to becoming arguably our best guy on the glass late in the year. Really stepped up defensively as well. He always brought the energy, but he really put it together starting about when ISU had the late 4 game W streak.
This is great news.

If you don’t get easy layups the shooting percentage difference between 3s and 2s isn’t as large as you’d think. Also a bunch of Jaz’s 3s were awesome looks where he was pretty open and that’s a higher % shot than a tough 2.

Hoiball stuff, man.

Yeah Kunz is a set shot guy and outside of dunks/layups a good look from 2 ain't happening.

I'd like to see him let if fly more often next season from the arc.

This is great news.

The other thing I like is that we're able to play small ball with him at the 5 and not lose too much against most teams. That can really open up the offense. Kunc and Tre King playing the 4 and 5 should give us enough size to do some damage while still not getting killed on defense or rebounding. That could be a fun 5 out offense with driving lanes open.
