We Live or Die By the 3

The Editorial Board was overjoyed to watch the BU v K-State game as the B went up 51 - 40 with 10 minutes remaining in the second half. Then a lid descended over the rim. Kevin Rogers, in foul trouble all night, fouled out, and Bruce, Dugat, Carter and Jerrells (the Perimeter Assassins) went a collective 2-18 from beyond the arc. When we shoot like that from Three Ball Land, we lose. How we desperately we wanted to title this post "Bring me the Head of Adolph Rupp," highlighting the two coaching legends that we had taken down in a row, but due to poor shooting we were unable to do so.

Again, let me re-emphasize what we need to make a better team: 1. Inside game (Lomers and Mamadou need to work on rebounding and developing some low post moves); 2. Mental mistakes - we make far too many bad turnovers; 3. Take the ball to the rim - with all these guards, surely some more trips to the stripe will help our scoring, as opposed to countless 3-balls hurled towards the iron.

Sic 'em?
