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.
Ok well, today's game showed that a team who had to depend on the 3pt shot lost while the team who consistently went inside won. I agree with you to an extent but the 3pt shot is a much lower percentage shot than a layup or dunk.
And if a team is kicking your ass in the paint they are going to have the kickout for the 3 pt shot anyway. Last year was a ****ing fluke in the NCAA. That team never shot that well and never did again. Just unlucky odds for us.
