per Marcus:

The misses are adding up, and now the Gophers are on pace to set a program record for lowest three-point percentage.

Gabe Kalscheur is the only player in the main rotation shooting above 30 percent from three (36.2). Brock Stull shoots a team-best 53 percent (8-for-15) from long distance, but the graduate transfer averages only 1.6 points in 8.9 minutes. Stull, who was the top three-point threat the past two seasons at Wisconsin-Milwaukee, could get more playing time now.

“I need to look to him a little bit more, because he can shoot it,” Pitino said Friday. “Dupree obviously isn’t shooting the ball well, but he gives other things besides shooting. He defends and plays hard.”

Hitting 10 three-pointers in the season opener vs. Nebraska Omaha was not indicative of what was to come. The Gophers only reached double figures in threes once more in the next 22 games, going 10-for-24 vs. Rutgers on Jan. 12. On Wednesday against Wisconsin, Kalscheur hit Minnesota’s first three-point attempt of the game, but the team missed its final 12 in a 56-51 home loss.

Opponents have made it a habit to play at least some zone defense against the Gophers to exploit their biggest weakness. Only on a few occasions has that backfired, most notably when Kalscheur got hot.

Go Gophers!!
