I have zero idea why our shooting %, especially 3's, sucked last night.
And I shouldn't take any consolation from the following, but I do:
#15 X goes into #3's house and loses by 25.
#1 Baylor goes into #10's house, and loses by 21.
Crap happens. I hope we are better than we showed. We sure have the chances coming up to prove it....he went up late, and I was already up there.

"You can sense some teams, when they get down, they'll hang... When (Xavier) gets down, they're going for broke. They're gonna shoot three's. They're going to come after you. They're going to speed it up. And if it works, good. But if it doesn't, it looks bad. I respect that... That's how they beat us out there (last season at Cintas Center)."
Here is what Jay Wright said, in full. I dont think it was meant as any sort of backhanded knock or dig, its just that we go for broke, and it either results in an impressive win, or a really ugly loss without much inbetween

I don't have an issue with launching 32 threes. I love it, but make the extra pass, drive and dish, etc. Give your team the best chance to make it.

a lot of the 3s were pretty open (which is fine obviously), but some were quick and would have been nice to get the ball in the lane more, whether by driving or by passing it inside to a big.
