Here we go again

A quick look at Wayne State’s stats indicates another team that likes to shoot the 3-pointer. Now, USI coach Rodney Watson has been saying that the Warriors love to drive the lane. But they are not averse to sending the ball back out to shooters beyond the arc. They average 14 3-point shots per game and 36.1 percent from that range.  Four players have hit over 25 3-pointers this season: Ian Larkin, a 6-5 senior, is the top shooter, at 42.9 percent (30-for-70), followed by Bryan Coleman (35.6 percent on 36-for-73), Mike Hollingsworth (34.6 percent on 27-for-78) and Cole Prophet (34.1 percent on 31-for-91). This isn’t to contradict Watson, but it’s still food for thought, especially since USI has often had trouble guarding the arc this season — opponents are taking an average of 19.9 3-pointers per game and are averaging 34.3 percent out there.
