So this is my first post on TN (I'm normally the type to sit back and read everyone else's comments), but I thought this was very interesting and worth posting.
After paying more attention to National Signing Day streaming on my laptop than the classes that I was in all day, I decided to switch gears and follow it up by going to the FSU vs Georgia Tech basketball game. Here’s a very intriguing stat that I noticed while looking over the box score after the game:
Of Michael Snaer’s last 14 3-point attempts (the last 3 games, or since the Duke game), he’s only missed 3 shots! That’s 78.6%!
As Michael Rogner mentioned after the game in the pre-game discussion thread, the team collectively over the last 5 games (since UNC) has gone 41-87 from 3-point range, or 47.1%!
Here’s another take on that: FSU as a team in that same time frame is averaging 8.2 3-pointers per game! That’s incredible!
So the big question is, what has happened exactly? Is the 3-guard lineup really responsible for such good offensive output, has something finally just “clicked” all of a sudden for Snaer and others, or is it something else? (i.e-weak competition in Wake and GT)
Furthermore, I wonder if they can keep this up, or will the hot-streak come to a halt come tournament time? If it keeps up, it’s almost scary to think how far FSU could go in the NCAA tourney this year!
