As one might say, its a good problem to have. That might be the case this season with nine, that's right nine shooters this year. That is nine players who have the ability put the ball in the hoop. Will there be enough shots to go around? Before you answer that question lets look at what we have returning. The team took 2,071 shots last season. Jamont took 20.9% of our shots last year, personally I would like to see this drop off alittle bit to around 18% and see Jamont improve his assists of 187 of last season to around 250 +this season. That would put him around 8-9 per game average for assists. Charles took 15.7 % of the shots, I think that is just about right, lets just get those rebounding numbers up Charles! Barry accounted for 11.6% and I think most agree that this number needs to increase to around 18% this season. Ben shot 8.5% of the shots and you should see this number grow to around 12% this season. Last but not least is Mr. Varnado, he only accounted for 5.6% of our total shots taken and was a eye opening 65% from the field. His shots need to increase to around 10% of the offense. I think Jarvis showed us the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his offensive skills. So if that accounts for 74% of the shots taken this season. You have to feel that 26% to spread across 4 primary players. Mop up time will account for about 1% so were left with a nice round number of 25%. You have to feel that out of Kodi, Ravern, and Phil, two will get about 5% and one is going to step up contribute in the 8% range. That leaves 7% for Elgin, Brian, and Benock. But Benock is showing signs that he doesn't plan on keeping the bench warm this season. Its the remaining 25% of the shots and how they get spread out that could make a difference this season. Well, if I have to punch the shift 5 keys for the percentage sign one more time, I might be sick. Once again, it could be a problem, but its a nice one to have. I think one of the most exciting things to come is to see who steps up and claims there share of that 25%. But, I think that it is extremely important for Jarvis's and Barry's numbers go up. Like I've said before, when Jamont drives the lane and draws the double team, he will have an array of shooters camping out on the arc licking their chops waiting to get Jamont closer to that total of 250 assists for the year. It will be fun to watch it all unfold. Go Dawgs!!
