3-point Folly

The 3-point shot is a dangerous, oft-unreliable, option for basketball player. Such is the lesson for today.

While Kelenna Azubuike turned in a decent game this afternoon, Patrick Sparks long-range touch was off and the mighty Wildcats were routed by Florida. To make matters worse, Duke holds off Georgia Tech in their game and emerges as champions. Blech.

Yet when the outside shots drop through the basket like Skittles from the sky, even the Raptors can win. Swish. It’s a sweet sound when it works. Clang, when it doesn't.
