I could not disagree more. Almost all DI players can hit a high percentage of uncontested, outside shots. It is nigh impossible to find a DI team that can consistently score the ball in the paint.
The three point line is the great equalizer in CBB, and it allows far inferior teams to compete and win. It's how we lost last year, and if we continue to play the defense on the perimeter we have, it's how we'll lose this year.
