Are we playing the right D?
Interesting piece over on Basketball Prospectus on where shots are taken in college basketball. Kenpom wonders if the best style of D is to deny the long distance and close stuff and let teams take mid-range shots all day. Our D cannot do much right lately, but when working Al prefers to pack in the D and let teams try to beat us with the 3. Maybe that is not the answer. I don't expect a change anytime soon, but it is something to ponder in the offseason.
