I agree, we were getting him open looks, but his misses were downright terrible misses. I mean, his threes were not remotely close, he had one driving layup where it looked like he had a wide open path and somehow shot the ball off the opposite side of the backboard - I think he was intimidated and nervous, and it wasn't getting better.
I don't necessarily disagree with you, either. But I don't think what JB did was some huge strategical mistake. When a guy is playing horribly, you have to trust your gut, which is either: (1) he doesn't have it today; or (2) let him work his way out of it. JB chose (1), and it worked against OK State just fine. We went smaller, and Duncan had some huge threes. Against Oregon, if Duncan's two near misses were makes, the strategy would again look right.
