    I have a funny feeling that this team's ups and downs will come from behind the arc. I mainly have that feeling because it doesn't seem likely that we are going to muster up a consistent offense in the paint with the guys on the roster.

    So what is the secret to having a consistently hot 3 point shooting team?

    1. Have good shooters
    2. Get them open

    It isn't really much more complicated than that.

    Chris Lofton shot 500 3-pointers a day during the off-season. Practice makes perfect.

    (I will say long-distance shooters are also the most fit guys on the team. Your legs have to be there over the course of 40 minutes if you want to shoot well and consistently).

    It is amazing how many wins Pearl just because of Lofton's legs.

    Unfortunately I think we're largely deficient on point #1

    We've struggled quite a bit with point #2 at times, too.
