a 47% 3 point rate on 4 attempts a game. that's so cool.

What's really remarkable is how often he takes the first shot (and scores the first points) of the game for us. He came out of the gate like a veteran, not a freshman.

I’m also curious how many shots he has hit when the game is within one possession. He seems to have a knack for those (if such a thing exists).

The funny thing about it is that I used to cringe when he took a three. His shot is sort of flat and he looks slightly misaligned. His shot looked fair, but not as pure as others (Betley). Well, it's hard to argue with the results.

I know what you mean - he kind of launches it off of his shoulder.

I’m a little late to the game, but I’m also a big fan of Washington!

If anything, I’d like to see a bit more of him as he is our most reliable 3 point shooter at this point, I like his on the ball defense (team defense still needs a little work), and I feel like he is starting to realize that if people overplay him outside that he has the speed and athleticism to get to the rim or FT line (he is also our best FT shooter).

This might be a little unpopular but I think Washington should play a little more mins and Silpe a little less. Silpe has been good on def but ineffective on offense since Nova (his ORATs don’t tell a good story since then). Not a knock against Silpe as I’m a fan, but I think a little less time is optimal.

I think 15 mins for Silpe and 30 mins for Washington would be a good mix. Most importantly, based on what we’ve seen of Washington, 51% of time played is just too low barring foul trouble.

Best thing about Bryce is the rate of his improvement in all aspects game-game. He’s still a freshman, but he’s really taken some of the sting out of losing Betley.
