I mean its worked 3 times out of 4 times in our close games this year. For all we know there was a play involved and Purdue defended it leaving Carr out on his own. Doubtful that's the case but 3/4 shows its kind of working even if its frustrating.But - do "all coaches" just let the guard go 1-on-1, or do they try to set him up by running something - pick-& roll, set some screens, run some motion - do something other than 4 guys stand and watch while 1 guy tries to create his own shot with no help from any teammates?
It's the difference between having a plan, and crossing your fingers.
yes - Carr has talent. He is capable of making things happen. But, I think the odds of it being successful would be greatly increased if the final shot was set up off a play as opposed to hoping Carr can do it all by himself.
Carr is not Jimmie Chitwood. he is not going to hit that shot every time. Just once, would be nice to see them run Merle off the picket fence. the way Gabe was shooting, I would have been fine with a play set up to spring Gabe for an open-look "3."
