    I bet none of them will ever have a season where they shoot this bad. 3 for 22 is comically bad. The doofuses (said affectionately) shooting for the lawn mower aren’t that bad.

    this is a BAD shooting team who now has zero confidence that any shot is going to go in. That turns a bad shooting team into a horrible shooting team. And that’s why prohm can’t just tell them to stop shooting. In order to have any chance to revert to the mean they’ve got to at least think the coach has their back.

    Regardless, if sub-33% 3P becomes the norm, the modern offense will become antiquated.

    To your question, should that be the goal?
    I’m agnostic.

    It will adjust over time. In 2008 they moved the line and percentages dropped and scoring dropped. Took a few seasons and then it rose to where it was higher than ever again. Now they moved it back again.

    I’m going to propose something absolutely crazy.

    What if Prohm started the same guys that he believes are the best options for us at the end of close games, instead of falling behind 20 before putting in his best team?

    That would require a coach who has a clue what he’s doing.

    It's pretty hard to determine who your best 5 will be until you see them play in the game. Then you ride the hot hands or in our case the not ice cold hands

    Conditt, Solo, Griffin all greater than Jacobson.

    Lewis, Grill, Jackson all greater than Nixon.

    Lets let Jacobson and Nixon put us in a huge hole, then try

    It’s very clear that we are a better team on both ends with Solo on the floor. And I think Lewis is a better option than Nixon or the freshman.

    Grill isn’t better than anybody right now. Has potential but absolutely kills the offense when he is in because it’s 5 on 4.

    We know exactly what we're getting with 2 of the guys in the starting lineup. And it's been apparent for a while now.

    When Prohm moved Conditt into the starting line-up, it was the right decision to have Solo come off the bench. Both Jacobson and Young were playing at the same level offensively, but Jacobson was doing a better job on the boards.

    Now that Conditt is starting, he is struggling. Now that Young is coming off the bench, he is on fire.

    Prohm is in a difficult position because other than Halliburton, our top 6-7 guys are just average players who are inconsistent. I think the best Prohm can do is to start the hot hand from game to game. I would start Young & Lewis over Jacobson & Nixon.

    Bolton and Haliburton are our only two sure fire starters. After that it's almost a guessing game

    Young’s been playing better but he’s always been focused on boxing out. He hasn’t always been great at getting rebounds but he’s always put effort in getting an opponents rebounder out of the play.

    I'm pretty sure the Monstars stole Jacobson's talent from last year.

    That's a bit like saying a guy who hits 25% of his shots is a good shooter because his shooting form is good.

    Solo is an effort guy- but when we play small our post guy needs rebounding production.
