Selby update?

As far as Selby goes I was curious about the situation as well so I asked around in the chat room for this game and a dude in there claimed he's friends with Releford and that he said Selby should hopefully be cleared to play this week sometime. Take that with a grain of salt of course.

Other than our lack of 3 point shooting and post defense, we should be pretty good. I hope Selby can shoot threes or EJ can develop into a consistent 3 pt threat.

It won't be. Reed and Morningstar have been making threes for their entire college careers, they aren't going to suddenly stop because they had a bad pre-season game.

I think they will get more polished, for sure. The defense should get better - Self likes to build that slowly throughout the season. I wasn't overly excited about the production of some of the unknowns. Releford and Little didn't exactly look like anything special. I would have thought Robinson and Elijah would have looked better, but they don't seem to have progressed very much since their freshman years (a far cry from what we got in 2008 from Collins and Arthur).

I also am not sure why he gets so much credit for being a 3-pt threat? I know we always hear about how much of a sharpshooter he is in practice, but he hasn't hit one meaningful shot in a regular game. And I have zero faith that he ever could or would.

Not to be down on the guy, but I get tired of people saying that he can shoot the three. I don't give a rats ass if he is 200/200 in practice, he shoots about 1% in real games (not mop-up duty garbage where those guys run and throw the ball around like it's on fire).

I think its because Teahen was regarded as a 3-point threat coming out of HS, and that's why we recruited him, a la Tyrel Reed. They hoped he could develop the other aspects of his game.

While he hasn't made a big shot in a meaningful game, he hasn't missed one either :D

Like they said in the broadcast last night, look at Tulsa team that went to the E8. Self has run, even at KU, including 2008 when we won it all. Just because he isn't Roy, and likes to play defense, doesn't mean he doesn't run.

I don't think its fair to say they "never shoot great from the outside", because 1) the stats prove the opposite, and 2) its generally everyone's biggest weakness, because it ain't easy to do.

Remember the Roy days, he HATED 3-pointers. Just because step 1 of Self's offensive philosophy is to get the ball inside, doesn't mean he doesn't want them shooting 3's - he just wants them to be open 3's.


As for their biggest weakness this year? who knows, its only been one game.

once again ... if you don't say outside shooting, you're not being truthful

Self is "go inside, generate offense from your defense" type coach

shooting outside is a necessary evil

our teams don't shoot outside much and since they aren't used to shooting from the outside regularly then when the pressure is on you struggle.

I don't know...I think our 3 point situation has vastly improved over the Roy years. It seemed that Roy had 1.5 designated 3 point shooters, and if they got in a funk we were screwed. Now we have 3 or 4 who can take the shot.
But you can't rely on the 3, it won't always be there.

So maybe you will be somebody to finally answer the question since all the other homers won't.

Zebedee DuBois
11-03-2010, 04:09 PM
I don't think the biggest weakness has necessarily been 3pt shooting...although I am sure there are nights when that was weak.

If you are truly asking what "I" think is a weakness...it has been some mental things. Like "killer instinct" or "taking an opponent lightly". Last year's team, as a team, hadn't faced the adversity that the 08 team had, and so didn't think a bunch of kids from UNI could do that to them...that is mental. Whatever it takes to fix that - that is our biggest weaknesss

Shogun

IMO, its preparation come tourney time. It seems were ALWAYS fine in regular season, but once the Tourney starts its like were an entirely different team. I dont know what can be said or done about it because the team constantly changes. But like Last year, we shouldnt have been beaten that easy, we need to treat every game like we're playing for a title. If that makes sense.

since when? shooting 3's has been our problem for years.
No, it hasn't. It's been a strength for years now.

They were 7th in the NCAA last year in 3PT% (1st in Big 12), 63rd in 2009 (3rd in Big 12), 14th in 2008 (1st in Big 12), 22nd in 2007 (3rd in Big 12), and 44th in 2006 (2nd in Big 12).

Seriously, this stuff isn't even hard to look up.

yea, cuz one player and one shot means everything.

KU is a low post/passing type team ... they don't run and gun. Self doesn't want it, Self doesn't coach it.

use it or lose ... we don't use it so we lose it. Our outside shooting(even FT shooting tbh) usually gets worse as the season goes along.
None of this is backed up by factual evidence, and most of it goes against what has been commonly observed by most fans.

#1. A low post/passing type teams needs good 3PT shooters. That's why KU has recruited so many of them.

#2. There is nothing "run and gun" about three pointers. Even the most restricted offensive teams can take a bunch of them.

once again ... i don't hate Self :spock:

ok, so in you opinion what is the weakest part of KU's game?

and

what has been the weakest part of KU's game during Self's tenure?

EVERY TEAM has strong and weak parts of their game!!!!!!!!

what is KU's?




note: if you don't say outside shooting then you're a liar.
If it's outside shooting, Self is pretty much the greatest coach of all time, because they've been an elite shooting team throughout his tenure.

ok, then you tell me ... what has been KU's biggest weakness?

Playing down to the level of the competition.

That's every elite team's biggest problem, though.

FT% has been a huge weakness in recent years, but that happens when your offense runs through bigs like ours. Last night was really impressive in that regard, though...it's impossible to stress how important free throw shooting is late in NCAA games.

I'm just saying that picking a statistical category is pretty crazy, considering how good we've been.

this is not about Roy, this is about Self

So maybe you will be somebody to finally answer the question since all the other homers won't.

In you opinion, what has been KU's biggest weakness under Bill Self?

gotta be something ... jersey's?Cheerleaders?

c'mon, name something.

first, as I said before, 3-point shooting is an easy thing to pick on because its hard for everybody. AND, the stats don't support your opinion.

second, its hard to name ONE weakness they have had over a 7-year span. We had a lot of issues with perimeter defense last year. In 2006-2007, we couldn't dribble-drive our way to a good shot in the half-court. I can't say we had any weaknesses in 2007-2008, we won it all. 2008-2009, we didn't have any scoring depth (but we had Sherron and Brady knocking down 3's, when someone else could create and dish it out)

Yeah I'd have to agree w/ this. We have been much better at 3 point shooting under Self and we had some great individual shooters in the Roy dayz.

my bad :sulk:

While I would disagree that 3-pt shooting is a weakness, it's definitely not a strong point of KU. I'd be more likely to say it's a weak part of our offense, but it doesn't keep us from winning. That's why I think labeling it as a weakness is going too far.
