ucla better figure out that 3 point d in general. 284 in the country.



After looking at some numbers the 175th ranked team in 3 point % last year was at 34.2% as a team. This year its down to 31.8%. I wonder if thats the drop in % the ncaa was looking for.

Are they looking for a drop? I assume they're trying to increase spacing and discourage pack line defense.

This.


It's all about encouraging more spacing on the floor.

i think all of it right?



The NCAA says the rationale behind the decision is to:

make the lane more available for dribble/drive plays from the perimeter

slow the trend of the 3-point shot becoming too prevalent in men's college basketball by making the shot more challenging, while at the same time keeping the shot an integral part of the game

assisting in offensive spacing by requiring the defense to cover more of the court

I never read about it. I am very skeptical that #2 will happen though.

UCLA lost at home by ten to Hofstra #139 in Kenpom

Last time they lost a home game to a team ranked 139 or worse in Kenpom was 2013 when Ben howland was the coach...

not necessarily a huge deal if we get Eason but 6'9 Center Nigel John who JB has been actively recruiting and has visited UC has just committed to Utah State.

At this point it seems like either Eason has already secretly committed here and is just waiting until december (21st I think) to officially committed. Or Brannen has just been very bad at recruiting big men. Hopefully it's the former.
