    He is 4-26 in his career (.154).  He isn't a 3-point shooter.  Good form on a shot doesn't make it within a player's range.  Defenses give him the space because he hasn't shown he can make them.

    ...and therein lies the problem.  He has to shoot them in order to prove he can.  If he does not shoot (and make them) defenses are going to sag and the lane will be more congested than a New York city street.  I can guarantee all that wonders, MJ would not be shooting them if the coaches did not know he could make them.  Coaches do not put players in a position unless they know they can succeed.  This is the same issue we have with all of our shooters right now sans Glynn and Tai.  Nobody is hitting the open looks BUT they need to take them and MAKE THEM.  That is the expectation.

    I think it definitely should be the expectation.  My issue with Gill and McVeigh (and I think Roby and Horne will be in this category) is that they are streaky shooters.  You have to evaluate them early on when they are in the rotation and pull them if they aren't heating up at all.  Jacobson, to me, has been really underutilized offensively this year because he apparently doesn't think he can get to the rim.  But it seems like every time he makes a concerted effort to get to the hoop via dribble penetration, he actually gets there and finishes or gets fouled.  He's a skilled player.  It's like he's forgotten how much muscle he has put on.  That's the difference between he and Morrow right now--Ed knows how strong he is.  If Jacobson can't find a post presence or even a dribble-drive presence, we're better with Jordy getting more of his minutes and Ed sliding over to the 4.  

     

    But for Gill, McVeigh, Roby, Horne, and Jacobson, you gotta be a D1 player and shoot the rock if you're open in rotation, and we gotta live with the results.

    Reading this thread you would think the Huskers got run out ot the Gym last night, instead of losing by TWO points after missing a good chance of Winning.  Seems like criticisms abound of anything Less than Perfection!

     

    Single possession wins/loses will always draw a lot of analysis
