8:30 left in first half and WYO is 8-11 from 3. They are torching the nets. WYO is looking strong right now.
WYO has hit 12-17 3 pointers. WOW! 57-39 WYO at half.

Guess we're not the only team having trouble defending the three...
I want to know how seemingly every team has guys that can hit open threes....except us :-(
Have we lost the three point shooting battle in every game this year both in terms of numbers made and percentage made? I don't know that's why I ask.
Defensing the three - Consistent Hard close outs with a LARGE sense of urgency is & ALWAYS with a hand up (pretty much other than Joe) is what we have lacked all year IMO. Shooting the three- our offense has produced open shots but we haven't hit them - EB is very inconsistent this year & no by else has stepped up consistently (perhaps Dane is about there). Just my opinion.
Actually, Wyoming shots a lot of three pointers. They are 35th in three pointers made but only 261st in percentage made. By comparison, UNM is 344th in three pointers made and 313rd in percentage made.
The team that could torch us is Air Force. They are 73rd in three pointers made but are 18th in their shooting percentage. Good thing we only play them once!
“Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.”
EB is 10-22 since conference season began on three pointers. I feel comfortable that he's back to the same form he was last year. At this point I think he and Dane are our only true three point threats.
We have to shoot more 3s, period. At least 20 per game. Even if we only make 31% which is our current average. Some of the missed 3s turn into offensive rebounds because they rebound off so far. It is not always a dead possession. It will loosen up the inside making post play for Tim easier and he will wear done less.
