I understand that point and agree pretty much no matter what that the season long average will be below average. My point is that they’ve all been above average to great 3PT shooters for a season before (or in Danilo’s case - several different high-level FIBA competitions). This isn’t a “hope they improve!” type statement, but rather a “I think they should be able to replicate what they’ve done before.” Bryce, Seth, Corey, Justin were at 36+% shooters for a season and the team has just cratered. I’m betting those shooters are still in there somewhere.



So you're saying there's a chance!

And on cue, as soon as I mention it, Harvard has a 61% 3pt night.

Ya, why tonight? H's FT shooting was off the charts, as well. Aiken had something to do with that.

Aiken shot 88.4% last season on FT's. Like Brown must do with Hunsaker and Cambridge, Harvard tries to inbound the ball to Bryce in intentional foul situations. Don't know if anyone noticed it, but after leaving the court with a twisted knee, Amaker inserted Bryce with 32 seconds left just to take the inbounds pass, hit 2 FT's and then be removed at the 30 second mark.

Old Bear, just when I was noticing that Harvard had held the vaunted Brown offense to 10 points in 10.5 minutes, I decided that it was much too soon to conclude that Brown had been contained. Brown went on to score 67 points in the final 29.5 minutes. Kudos to Brown's talented guards.

On the other hand, the two games against Dartmouth and the fast starts against Yale and Brown - all spearheaded by impressive defense, requires an intensity that's hard (impossible) to maintain throughout an entire game.

Good Luck to Brown the rest of the way (except for Feb 16th at Lavietes)

Ha - can’t this team just go 9-for-25 each night? Next week they’ll still find a way to go 10-for-39 at Columbia or something.

Special defense and a return to form from beyond the arc...looks like 12-2 to me. 7-3 from here would be a slump!

Thanks HGG, when Harvard shoots 60% (11-18) from 3, and 86% form the line (25-29) they are unbeatable in the League. Towns was unstoppable and Aiken played 20 mins and was 11-12 from the line.
