Tre Williams has played better than that 9. whatever would seem to suggest. He's had his moments and he can't shoot free throws too well but dang... I would actually like to see him shoot a few more 3's - he seems to have a decent touch. It's not like our guards outside of Cooper can shoot so why not let him give it a go.

There are several things harpooning his PER. The FTs as you mentioned is a small part -- 47%. The drop in his FG% after the 1-8 is a part. The fact he now is the team leader in turnovers is a part. That it is all considered against how many minutes they play and our offensive pace so if they play 30 minutes and aren't productive, its just a recipe to sink.

Looking at some numbers this year vs last year:

MPG: 29.9
2FG: 51.9%
FT: 47.4%
TS: 52.1%
EFG: 51.8%
ORB: 4.6%
DRB: 19%
TRB: 11.7%
TO: 25.8
USG: 35.1%

MPG: 24.7
2FG: 55%
FT: 42.2%
TS: 54.0%
EFG: 54.7%
ORB: 7.2%
DRB: 13.6%
TRB: 10.4%
TO: 17.6%
USG: 30.2%

TL;DR: He needs to continue playing his game around the rim, he needs to increase his FT% to at least 60%, he needs to rebound much better, especially on the offensive end, and he needs to take better care of the basketball.

I guess losing Barnes hurt, huh. I had hoped that the transfer guards had helped more. Larry, obviously, needs more time.
I would have hoped Tre would have worked less on his outside shooting and more on his post moves. (At least that's what it looks like)

Yep. Losing Barnes hurt - you knew it would though. As frustrating as it could be to watch him sometimes (for me anyway) he competed at a high level and was basically a 4 year starter - you don’t easily replace that any year. + the very big loss of Williams who was an undervalued player especially last year once he was fully healthy.

Lansing had a lot to replace and atleast for now it doesn’t look like he was able to.

Jake has fallen off a cliff since the ball dropped on 2021. Cooper has been steady, Tyreke has done what he's done every year at State, 2 steps forward, 1 step back. My biggest surprise has been Tre. He has been essentially nullified for a couple weeks.

Key leads the team with a 52.9% 2FG%, Coop leads the team with a 46.2% 3FG% and both are shooting 90.4% and 84.6% from the line. Our offense absolutely must resolve around them the remainder of the year. Every single big is shooting inside the arc at 50% or less. Oh, and Hankins's offensive numbers in limited minutes should get him more PT to see if he can do it against a longer sample size.

If schedule and quality of opponent matters, then hopefully we see these numbers begin to climb.
