Just a thought

Post by 72AgGrad » January 8th, 2021, 10:03 pm

This team had some early season stumbles and the loss to BYU will rankle for the rest of the year, if not forever, but I think they have come together and look pretty damned good. I know it is early yet, and SDSU is looming, but we get them at our house. If we sweep that series, or even split, I'll be surprised if we don't, at the very least, make the WWCT final.

Don't discount Boise.....they're looking pretty good. It's a three-team race between USU, SDSU and Boise. We can distance ourselves by sweeping SDSU this week.

Yeah the last 3 teams we have played are bad, but we took care of business and looked good doing it. We are a much improved team from early in the season. If we played South Dakota State now, we probably win by the margin we lost to them by.

4 team race, do not forget CSU, they beat SDSU on the road last week. Should the Aggies sweep SDSU, it is their conference for the taking.

Aggies are playing great, 2 things worry me still.......free throw shooting and can we ask Miller to just not shoot, unless it’s a lay up?

I get the PTSD from last season, but Miller hasn't been bad this season. He was shooting 3's at like a 45% clip up until about two games ago. Right now his average is at 39%, which is still good enough to allow him to shoot it. If he drops into the 35% range or lower, then yeah, we might limit him.

Miller is still shooting 38.6% on the year. But he does seem to shoot better when he shoots less. He should probably be shooting 3 or 4 threes a game when he has open looks. He has had a few bad games in a row but I think he will find his shot again.

Miller is reverting to his mean, which at the end of the season will be around 32% on 3s. Unless he suddenly becomes effective defensively, let others play and take those shots
