  1. Suddenly, Kentucky can't shoot

    Eamonn Brennan

    You wouldn't call Kentucky a good shooting team -- at least not by the typical definition of the phrase. For example, the Wildcats shoot about 34 percent from 3. The team's most frequent 3-point shooter, guard Aaron Harrison, is 25-of-88 on the se...

    Eamonn Brennan

    In Saturday's 58-50 win over Louisville, Kentucky guard Tyler Ulis scored 14 points on 5-of-8 shooting in 26 minutes. That number is more impressive than it looks, given the 59 possessions the two rivals shared. Even then, it doesn't quite get to ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Here's a question: What happens when you mix two teams that average 29 percent shooting from 3 and 46 percent shooting from 2 on offense, both of which play some of the sport's best and most physical defense, both of which rank among the 20 slowest t...

  7. Can Branden Dawson do it all?

    Eamonn Brennan

    For Michigan State, last season was The Season. I mean, just look at that starting five. Gary Harris, one of the nation's best freshmen in 2012-13 -- a truly one-and-done-level shooting guard who stayed for Year 2 -- was playing better on both end...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Penn State was unlucky last season. As Mike Portsheller and Josh Reed (aka the Big Ten Geeks) wrote in College Basketball Prospectus, 3-point shooting can be a bit of a lottery, and the Nittany Lions caught the wrong end of it on defense last season....
