    Would be interested to see the OP’s (or anyone’s) breakdown of the philosophical differences between this offense and the offense in Mack’s last year.

    it is clearly becoming a mental block as much as a lack of shooting ability. Both on a bad day should be hitting 20% of shots..not zero percent. In the case of Moore his opportunities are feast or famine but he is pressing(some shots seem to be decent in and out misses). Q is not anywhere near as good as Moore but was serviceable but now it reminds me of when Nick Anderson missed 4 foul shoots against Houston Rockets in 1995 that would have iced game one and was NEVER near the same player again. I am praying that they break the streak tomorrow.

    Steele is not exempt from everything he's ever done but this is division 1 basketball, you have to take and make open shots if you have them. You know what happens to teams that can't make open shots ? They, like the other 280 schools in the country, don't make the tournament.
    Run the table.

    It was a VERRRRRRY weird show, and one that had me rolling my eyes numerous times- the same eye roll that I had as I listened to his post game Press Conference last Saturday. I,m VERRRRRRRY concerned.

    Xavier is Two Hundred Ninety First ranked in 3 point shooting percentage in Division 1 basketball. Why?
    Because lousy shooters keep taking the majority of our shots. And Steele just lets it happen with no change to adjust.
    Hell, man, at this point, just sit Q. Put KyKy and Paul in there with Moore the first off the bench. Screw this "lose the locker room" iish. You lose the locker room by continually losing games, and that's gonna happen unless something changes. Period.

    I don't get this. Not everyone on even the better teams is a good shooter from everywhere. Yes, if you're open you take the shots that you are capable of making in a proficient manner. Our coach is letting players shoot shots that they are not capable of making at an acceptable rate. The other teams know this and that's their game plan. Tyrique is a D1 player, that label doesn't mean he should be shooting 3s when wide open; as best as I can tell, he hasn't taken a 3pt shot in his career (for a very good reason), even though he would be open from there on every possession we have.
    Many things go into coaching and one of them is getting the most out of your player's talents, we seem to be getting the least. There is talent on this team and I believe enough talent to be at a minimum a top 20 team. It is just not being deployed in the best manner, actually, it's quite the opposite.

    MOR, you give us too much credit, we rank 313 in 3pt %; and in games where we shoot 20 or more 3s (which is 10 of our 17 games) our % ranks 345.

    This. So what happens if you bench Q.........Naji and Tyrique revolt? Let 'em and sit their asses on the bench as well. I would expect that revolt to be short lived.

    Just as a data point, Xavier is ranked 235th in the country in 3 point attempt % (relative to X's total field goal attempts).
