    How much different is a FIBA ball? Could see that throwing them off a bit.

    Not only that, but the FIBA ball has a much different feel and texture to it with the panels etc.

    Michael Hurt...3 for 4 from 3. Everyone else took 15 + and made ~30%. As we've been saying for 3 years, shoot the ball, kid.

    He's just 12 for 48 from 3 in his career with the Gophers. Maybe we found the problem though - he's been practicing with a FIBA ball this whole time!

    IIRC he started about 0-15 his freshman year and basically stopped shooting.
