It’s not having any interior offense. Myles and Cliff contrbute no offense except for high screens and because of that the defense only has to defend the three. So if those aren’t falling the team isn’t competitive. Cliff is only a freshman. Myles has never developed any offensive ability.
Yes teams pack it in and dare us to shoot. With our percentages, that’s a great philosophyMyles has decent post moves when he has space to operate. If you notice, he got off to a good start offensively against MD then was doubled.. and he was neutralized. Nebraska basically had 2-3 folks in the paint all night. We couldn't hit the 3 and the rest was history. Sad part is that this is like a broken record and the coaching staff simply let the players continue to miss from three.
Defense, rebounding, and hustle would make up for our inconsistency or lack of shooting.
Now this team thinks they can just show up and compete on any given night without bringing any of the above.
guys....you watched this game and explain Myles 2 points as him being the focus of the defense ? We got no open threes. Neb did not emphasize defending Myles. They focused very successfully on shutting down long range shooting
They packed the paint to take away the inside game and the so called shooter couldn't make shots to open up the paint!!!! Bad 3 point shooters not great 3 point defguys....you watched this game and explain Myles 2 points as him being the focus of the defense ? We got no open threes.

Players can work on their shooting skills all hours of the day in the practice facility .Sadly,there has been very little noticeable improvement in their shooting 3 pointers or foul shots.Far better recruiting is the answer for future teams.Too much time on social media. Not enough effort. Seems like it’s really all or nothing with effort.
