What Jake did was exactly what was drawn up and intended. They work on this with Jake a lot in practice. Refs, especially in college, tend to swallow whistles late in games so a jump shot to win is not a bad percentage shot. Jake can get his own shot and is obviously very comfortable in that 16-18 foot range. You have two bigs in the game to rebound in case Jake goes a little early and there is a second chance opportunity. Also, it gives an option for a pick and roll if Jake is struggling to beat his man one on one. Results aside, I didn't have an issue with that shot at all.

but what you said here really doesn't have anything to do with what i was saying.

jake did what he had to do. and to his credit he made a tough shot. we make it difficult on ourselves. we have shooters, there is nothing wrong with using them to space the floor.


19 footer with a hand in your face is the worst shot in basketball.

It really a bad play design that worked. It’s the seem play he had Cane run at the end of the Florida game. Cane got by his man and then Gary’s man stepped up and Cane tried to pass to Gary which end up being a turnover. Rewatch the end of that Florida game and you will see. The short post should only have one post player on the opposite side of the drive so his man have more space to cover. He should never have a post player on the same side as the penetrator. Bad design that worked.
