Worth reading 3.12.19: trading frees for threes

If you read only one thing about the Vols today . . .

. . . make it this, from the Times Free Press:

That’s the most concise description of the key for this year’s Tennessee basketball team that I have seen. It’s not just that the team took too many threes against Auburn, it’s the opportunity cost associated with doing so. If you look at this table from Bart Torvik, you’ll see the drastic difference in ranking between the team’s field goal percentage and its three-point field goal percentage. When this team works inside out, its ceiling may well be the championship, but if not, they’re playing with fire.
