    If Bolton can get back up around 35% as a shooter while maintaining his other areas of improvement from his freshman year he will be a very good piece moving forward.

    While his 3PT shooting % is down... he's improved in TO% (dramatically), PER (dramatically), true shooting %, efficient FG%, free throw attempt rate, stl %, etc. Main point is he's greatly improved in many other areas sans his outside shooting.

    If we had an absolute knock down shooter, it'd be perfect. A Naz, Matt, or McGee type shooter. It'd take a ton of weight off of Bolton's shoulders who probably has put pressure on himself to be the shooter on the team. Have to work with what you have though. Bolton needs to keep shooting and getting up good looks. I've actually noticed Bolton's shooting improves when he's aggressive to the rim. I think him getting to the line and getting a bit of a rhythm helps his outside game.

    That I accept. I just don't think "he can work on _____" this summer is always fair.

    Agreed, he certainly seems engaged with teammates during the games.

    I’ve noticed his shooting improves when playing Alabama. Outside of the Bama game, he’s at 13%, with the best outing 1/3.

    Prohm should probably bench him then or maybe even instill in Bolton's brain that he stinks at shooting and shouldn't take three pointers. That'll help him out.

    IMO Curtis Stinson is one of the best players we've ever had. He's about a career 30% shooter. Some guys that's just not going to be a strength. If the other parts of his game are good enough, it's fine. Rasir brings an element to this team we haven't had in a while. Call me a homer but I'm going to celebrate what our guys are good at, not drag them for their weaknesses.

    I can’t believe you want him off the team. He’s not shooting well outside of the Bama game, but you’re being way too drastic.

    As far as shooting at the College level he has proven to be head and shoulders over them as of right now.

    Stinson made a lot more "sense" as a player then than he would now, to be fair.

    That’s great and all, but he’s not a streaky shooter. Disagreeing with your assertion isn’t dragging a player. No one would ever call you a homer, so I’m glad to learn you’re turning over a new leaf and abstaining from now on.

    Like I said, he’s a nice asset. Just not even a streaky shooter right now. Stinson is a good goal for Bolton. He had a solid handle and was able to create.

    he hit 5/6 in a game this year. He’s the very definition of a streaky shooter.

    I see a lot of DeAndre Kane in Bolton's game. He's not as big but he drives the lane well, finishes, and gets to the stripe. He's also an ok shooter like Kane was, good enough but not a sharp shooter.

    I do like that we have an elite free throw shooter this season, like we did with Shayok last year. So nice to have at the end of games.

    At least the looks that Bolton gets from 3-point land are good ones (outside of one early in the shot clock against UMKC). He isn't forcing up 3-point shots. Nixon is definitely forcing them. He will mishandle a pass, dribble once and jack it up over defenders.

    Was walking my dogs today when I got the idea to post my congratulations to Charlie Kolar on making the PFF All American Second Team on a thread about Jalen Terry that hardly mentions him.

    Congratulations, Charlie Kolar, on your selection!!!

    Bolton shot 88% last year and he's sneakily up to 83%. He's the guy.
