I've often been accused of oversimplifying things...but we just don't have the shooters. I said the same thing last year. This year we have Dartis, but he is 9 for 39 in the last 5 games from 3. I think we've got some good basketball players...good overall effort, good defense, ball movement, etc. We just have to knock more down.

I remain hopeful that our freshman guard trio of Roderick, Brown & McDay are better outside shooters than they have shown. I think all 3 will improve this season and into next. As it stands now, we have a roster of guys who mellow in the low 30s from 3 and don't do much better with mid-range jumpers.


You know, in his Senior Year Nick developed into an effective inside-the-arc shooter that turned him into a more complete player. I'd like to see Dartis do the same thing, although it might be too late for him to change.


He was doing this more until his hips failed him.

I think Noah McCarty just got away with another push off.

It's interesting to me that NIU has a guy (McCarty) and a women's player (Woods) who seem to push off constantly. Not saying other teams don't have the same, obviously it's a common thing. But for whatever reason, I notice the chicken wings and hooks a LOT with those two NIU players. Woods on the ladies side, especially. She finally got called for it in the game here this year late in the game when she raised the chicken wing to an Ohio player's face.

The most blatant example of this was back ten years or so ago when our women's team had a home game against Michigan. They had a big center who literally shoved the defender out of the way on just about every play, and it was never called. She would put her left arm out, shove the defender out of the way, and complete a short hook shot or layup. She would probably have completed a lot of them without the shove, but it certainly increased her shooting percentage by quite a bit.
