Williams was hot but most of his shots were open looks. Frazier still playing less than 100%. If USF wasn’t so so bad we’d be in last place. We’ve lost our way. What was looking like a potential good season has turned into another disaster. The team looks like they mailed it in.
Saying most of Williams' shots were open looks is a little unfair. On one of the 3's he was fouled and it still went in. Several others were from 25 feet. Nobody is going to be chesting up out there. I don't think Williams even hit the rim on any of the 3's; it was incredible (90% from the field and 100% from the line). The disparity of 3's and free throws was more than the difference in the game. The defense was good enough to win. The offense worked to get good shots but just didn't make them. Cornish put up an open 3 that missed the basket by a foot. Reynolds is trying to shoot his way out of the slump and, as you state, Frazier is just not healthy.
With the level of talent on this team, they need 85%-90% performance to win and the other team needs to make a few mistakes. When that doesn't happen, like last night, it's going to be a problem. Before the season started, I heard Dunleavy say several times that he hoped to win about 15 games with this team. His assessment seems pretty accurate.
