A time and score truth I really believe: If the guy who starts with the ball isn’t the guy who shoots the ball, you will get a better shot. Somebody else is usually open.

Watch the final play from the national championship game. The play breaks down when Brady Manek trips, so the second option is Caleb Love. He has 4.3 seconds to make a play, but Carolina needs a 3. Not an easy task. Take a close look as love pulls up for a contested 3. One pass away, in the opposite slot, Puff Johnson is standing by himself. His man is helping towards the ball. With 2.2 seconds left when Love raised up to shoot it, there was more than enough time to make one more pass and get a shot off.

The defense is always attracted to the ball in time and score situations. Somebody is going to lose sight of their man. It’s not an easy play, I get it, because the clock is ticking and you need to get a shot off. But if you practice it enough and train your guys to make the extra pass on time and score situations, I’m sure you’ll end up with better shots.

Everyone is attracted to the ball. Someone is always open. If the person who starts with it doesn’t shoot it, you will get a better shot.
