Does anyone still wonder why Duke worked so hard to chase the Vols off the 3-point line? Three-pointers should nearly always be open shots for most players. Lofton was an exception; Duke's freshman star, Austin Rivers, may be another. The competition as such shouldn't make that much difference in how one shoots the three; if a shooter can make them, he can make them any time. The only difference is how the defense plays them, i.e., whether they allow them to be open or not. If Maymon and the other guys had made a few more of the layups they missed against Duke, the defense might have collapsed more and the outside shooters may have had more room and made a few of them.
