Well ksunimrod, stats can be tricky. See here at ksuheupzu, we run a style of offense that thrives on what we call "low percentage shots". These are the types of shots, usually late in the shot clock, where a guy heaves an off balance 3 somewhere between the NBA 3 and the half court line, and often with a hand in their face. Surprisingly, these shots go in at a much lower rate than more traditional shot choices.

This makes total sense now!  I've been practicing that very move my whole life in driveways and on playgrounds (maybe throwing in a few awkward head fakes too...)  and my percentage is basically the same.  I can only conclude there must be some sort of incentive for recruiting non-traditional students of the game?

When I watched they took a bunch of long twos which is probably worse than the long threes

Shot Quality stats even say we should have 4 more wins right now.

Even when they get quality shots, they don’t make them at a very high clip.

 Kidtrell Blocker 6-foot-5 combo guard

How about your first Big 12 offer from Kansas State?

“As far as Kansas State, one of their assistants had seen me play against Our Savior Lutheran and one of their commits last year and he said I was one player that stood out against like six high-major players and he was at a lower school at the time so he thought I was this high-major guy with tons of offers already, so,  when he came to K-State and seen I was under-recruited and still available, they’ve been on me since.”


Where do things stand in your recruitment as far as possible suitors?

“St. John’s and Montana State have been recruiting me. West Virginia, Alabama also reached out to my coach but haven’t heard anything from there yet.”

Assuming oscar (or Brad :love:) doesn’t oscar anyone important in the off-season, what are the biggest 1 or 2 glaring roster needs heading into 2021-22? This includes both recruits and transfers.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

If Antonio Gordon is actually gone  :crossfingers: do we have anyone worth a crap we could replace him with?

Our biggest need is more roster spots so we can get an actual point guard and move pack off the ball.

He's the best 4 we have and before he got hurt or whatever is gong on, he played his role, d and rebounding, nearly perfectly. He just needs to chill out on the 3s arcs he started doing that.

Healthy Monte Murphy is hopefully worth a crap.

Agree on Antonio, but I think he's gone. Hopefully Murphy can be healthy for a season.

Absolutely agree that we need a valid point/combo that can handle playing on the ball to move Pack off for the majority of the game.

How hard is it to find fringe NBA stretch-4s? We seem to have had success with those types under oscar.

Claws’s are basically impossible to find.  What other stretch 4’s has oscar recruited?

Damn. Another great plan foiled by reality.

Not that he would pick us anyway, but I'm pretty sure oscar wouldn't take a player who left his school the way and reason that Fletcher left Kentucky.

instead of slandering the source, you should try to dispute his article with facts.  but you have none.  get your head out of oscar’s crotch!

I'm not going to trash his bonafides, he could be incredibly knowledgeable about college basketball just young and haven't gotten his big break yet.

I will trash the hell out of his methodology though. He just took power five schools with the smallest high school classes and completely disregarded transfers. It's not 1997, the transfers are a significant part of recruiting.
