Should Henry Ellenson stop shooting 3s?

No.  Yes, he hasn’t been good at it. (After a 1-5 night in Providence, his season average is down to an awful 25.5% on 51 attempts.) Yes, he has forced up way too many in poor situations. (He’s never taken less than two 3s in a game and only made two 3s in three games.) […]

In the land of giants

Years ago, when the world was smaller, NBA shooting guard Lazar Hayward was a center. Yeah, all 6-foot-6 of him. Those weren’t exactly the Dark Ages of Marquette basketball – the 2009-2010 team went 22-12 in a loaded Big East and was a 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament, after all – but they were, […]
