Giving up another easy basket with undisciplined defense.
For some reason, the last two years at Villanova have shown a lot of frustration within the ranks. Key players piling up early fouls, poor shot selection, sloppy passing and a lack of awareness.
Last year, senior Corey Stokes shot 43.2 percent from three-point range, draining 89-of-206 attempts. That is good. Point guards Corey Fisher and Maalik Wayns, though, heaved a combined 277 three-point shots despite only making 84, for 30.3 percent. Things haven’t changed much this year.
So far, Wayns and Dominic Cheek are the top three-point gunners and are shooting 32.5 and 27.3 percent, respectively. The shooting woes are almost welcome compared to all the times they let an offensive player get an uncontested put-back or commit fouls on three-point shots at the end of the shot clock.
