Glad most on here are so focused on big men on here, but in case you have never watched a Griffs game, we don’t try to work the ball inside (unless it’s to kick the ball back out).

We need 3pt shooters, we lost all (4) of them (Faulkner, Sanks, Molson, Reese). Also, if you’re going to tell me we are all set because Sam Rautins will be raining 3’s, just save your breath.

I guess the one thing that we can say is that Reggie should have the best defense in the MAAC this season because the “defensive minded” coach will have all the big men he has been searching for.

They will miss Faulkner and Sanks when it comes to 3's. Molson was terrible from 3 last year. He took way to many trying to get his PPG up to transfer. Reese wasn't much better. Molson took 205-3's and only made 55 of them, that's 26.8%. Reese took 115-3's and made 35 of them 30.4%. They won't be missed for their 3's. For example Sanks made 49-3's on 146 attempts, that's 33.6%. Molson took 59 more 3's and made 6 more then Sanks. The Griffs best 3pt shooters % wise will now get a chance to take some shots. Hitchon took 56-3's and made 26 of them that's 46.4%. Reese only made 9 more 3's then Hitchon and but took 59 more 3 pt attempts. Molson took 149 more 3pt shot attempts than Hitchon did and only made 29 more 3's. Basically had to take 4 times the shots to make only twice as many. Henderson will also get to take more shots from 3 and he was better % wise by a long shot over Molson and Reese. I think we lost 2 good 3 pt shooters and that's it going by last years stats. Molson's game is not taking 3's by a long shot. He is best driving the basket. Faulkner only made 7 more 3's than Hitchon but it took him 32 extra shot attempts to get that 7 more. We will miss TM for other things then 3's. They are gone and we do need some more 3 pt shooters to step up or be recruited. I don't think it's as bad as you do though. Go Griffs!

Very good observations. Besides not shooting 3’s very well, Reese had attempted only a handful of free throws at the time he was suspended. He had essentially stopped going to the basket, which he had excelled at previously.. And Molson became a total gunner , often settling for forced 3’s when he did NOT have a good look at the basket. There is no doubt in my mind that going to the NBA workouts changed those two players. Instead of working on their deficiencies within a team concept, they turned their focus to their possible future in “the league”. The projected big season fell far short of the mark.

WNY Griff is right on about Reese. In 20 games he attempted 23 free throws! And he was our starting shooting guard. Really? And he could previously go to the hoop for a lay up, or pull up for the short jumper. What happened?

He also was never comfortable accepting the role of team leader. This team had an issue with team dynamics for the last two years. Some of the blame needs to fall on the shoulders of our coaches.
