What to Watch | Getting the three-point rhythm

Despite its 40-point rout, Missouri only shot 22.6 percent from beyond the arc against Incarnate Word. Based on what we Know about Missouri's shooters, That number is bound to have up – Their Combined two shooters is best to have 2-11 from deep. However, Northern Kentucky does not defend the three better.

Northern Ireland at the arm's length. There was no point in this point. Now is a good time out of any.

In their season opening victory, the Norse chucked 36 threes, accounting for 49 percent of their shots. That 's a long – range shooting for 41 percent of their total shots. Just looking at one of the best in the world.

Another interesting wrinkle to the Norse offense is poor free throw shooting. Normally veteran-laden teams are better in this area. Went to 17-32 from the line. They should get into foul trouble
