Last year we ranked 197th nationally in three-point shooting percentage.  A two point improvement would have moved us to a tie for 55th.  A three point improvement to a tie for 29th.   I do love the idea of having an elite D.  But outside shooting is the glaring weakness.  Without it we struggle to build and maintain leads, which in turn increases the burden on our D.  Shooters, yes, please!

Adding one player is not likely to improve our three point shooting that much, especially considering the available players and that they would be replacing our best 3 point shooter by percentage from last season. Replacing one of our worst defenders with a great defender on the other hand...

Is there interest? Would be pretty funny to leave his dad's team to go the school that let him go... great story!

How good is the Horizon league?

Horizon League as a whole is not good, but Davis is legit.

Haven't we tried enough bad shooters in this program? I mean, 35% FG last year. JFC. I don't care if he saved a school bus full of children we need players who can win games, not more bricklayers.

I’m a prophet!

My take is that Dexter Dennis can probably help win games while laying some bricks.

With the likely number of new guys, getting them all on the same page and making fit is going to be a challenge. Just the growing pains of advancing the program I guess.

Apparently we haven't.  We must acquire all the bad shooters!  Can't hit the broad side of a barn?  We've got a spot for them.

Unfortunately there is a coach who has shown that he can succeed with an undersized, ball in his hands shoot first point guard in Carson Edwards.  Hope he doesn't end up there.

I saw an interview with Coach Davis a few years ago and he said he would love to see his son play at IU
