Decided to make a FanPost because I didn't know where else to put this little tidbit.
Frank Kaminsky has been integral to the success of the Badgers. He's a top-of-the-line skilled seven-footer who can do many many things with the basketball in his hands. One of those things is shoot the three.
However, over the course of the season Kaminsky has been growing more and more tentative to shoot. He rarely pulls the trigger in rhythm and seemingly has to convince himself to shoot when he finds himself open behind the arc. This had been based solely on observation, but his numbers through 29 games also seem to support this narrative.
Note: The 6-for-6 game vs UND exaggerated the magnitude of the decline in attempts and percentage, but the trend in attempts is just as pronounced when that game is removed.
In my opinion the offense needs Frank to be more assertive when he's open, especially off of the pick-and-pop. If he's wide open, he should shoot. Look for Frank to string a few 3s together over the last two games and the B1G tourney. A little confidence could boost this offense into juggernaut mode and increase the chances of that magical run we've all be hoping for.
On the other hand, Gasser is lighting it up lately and taking more shots as a result.
