I think the local cuisine has 'poi'-soned his shooting stroke

Ooof with the pun! His green light zone seems to be getting larger and larger as his shooting touch has declined. Some of the shots he's been jacking up are way out there. Frankly I wish he'd trim it back a little.

It doesn't seem that the defenses have been any more focused on Cannady than earlier in he season. On the other hand he appears to be stepping up his own defense and getting more involved rebounding. This larger role may be affecting his natural delivery. He'll work it out.



Probably correct assessment; his defense has clearly improved.

DC drew the critical charge down the stretch, not something I'm used to seeing from him. Combined with his clutch rebounding, he found a different way to help the team. And if even one or two of his good looks from outside had gone in, the game would have been by a couple of possessions.

Last two years, the Tigers fate, other than the ND game, was decided if Miller won the opening tap. Now, we are dependent on Eric Von Zipper making the initial post after the odds come out as he sets everything in motion.

It was revealing when the Miami coach stated that the defensive plan was geared on stopping Cannady. He is getting much closer attention in my opinion. It may also help if gets two minutes rest in each half but it is tough in these tight games. He has an amazing motor but he probably needs a blow. Back to back nights in the Ivies will be problematic to play 40 minutes per game. Reality was that he is not sure 60% on 3 pointers for the entire year.

He remains a deadly weapon.

His only three pointer against Akron was on a curl around an away screen, which left him open right at the three point line, instead of 2-4 feet beyond.

I'd like to see a lot more of that, and if they start to switch, the screener has a mismatch down low.
