    Shooting is it. And it’s been a problem for awhile but hopefully getting some injured guys healthy will help.

    Whenever we're healthy, I'm ready for a lineup of all the guys that didn't play last year...the 4 transfers plus Thomas.

    We shot 3-21 (14.2%) from 3 pt, they shot 10-23 (43.5%), tells you all you need to know.

    Looking forward to see how we look with Ali Ali starting instead of Taylor. JT is just not good.

    Credit to Shrews, he knows how to run an offense. They had MANY wide open, in-rhythm 3’s, and players who shot them confidently. Good ball movement.

    Hindsight is 20-20, but it is interesting to think about what the last 5 years would have looked like with Shrews instead of LJ

    Simas hasn’t been a whole lot better. Made some weird decisions for a guy who has shown a pretty high basketball IQ.

    Fwiw, Nova was 0-16 on threes in the first half against Delaware State tonight and 5-27 overall in eking out a 10-point win.

    I think if you said coming in to the game that Butler only needs to shoot 30% from 3 to win we would have taken it. Frustrating result in the end, assuming we don't complete a miracle comeback, but I don't see any reason to be discouraged about the team moving forward because of it.

    I don't know if stagnant is the right word. There's been too many fast breaks where we came flying down the court in transition and took really bad shots or threw the ball away. It's early in the season & plenty of time to work that out.

    The bad perimeter shooting is another story.

    Our guard play is to streaky and it was that way last year also

    We haven’t had a consistent big time scorers since Baldwin

    I know it’s one game but dang this game hurts as there is nobody at this game and I think penn state looks like bottom half big ten team

    Harris/Taylor/Hunter: 1-13 from 3 point range in a game we lose by 6. That's the difference basically right there.

    Yeah we never quit, but we made some dumb shots and decisions to kill what they had going...

    Exactly…not beating anyone shooting 21.7% from 3. That shouldn’t surprise anyone. That it was still a game is a big positive.

    That Butler has shot poorly from 3 all 4 games this year js…highly concerning. Gonna be a frustrating season. Need Ali asap.

    Well, we didn't make it super easy on them and PSU didn't cover the opening spread.

    We took some questionable early shots, but we also only had 5 turnovers. I'm actually quite ok with that. At the end of the day we just needed guys to knock down shots and other than Bates we didn't do it.
