Monday afternoon at Pratt Pavilion, he worked an arc, just inside the 3-point line, from corner to key to corner and back again.
Shot after shot, with a rapid-fire pit crew rebounding and feeding him basketballs.
This wasn't one of Tennessee's perimeter guys attempting to remedy an oh-fer day at Alabama. It was a player who has scored nearly all his team-leading 121 field goals within arm's reach of the basket.
"Man, it's tough,'' a winded Jeronne Maymon said. "You've got to make consecutive shots in order to move on to the next spot.
"I could make four and miss the fifth one and I've got to stay at the same spot and start over again.''
If you can't recall Maymon making or even taking a lot of 18-foot shots in 27 UT games this season, it's because he hasn't.
He's averaging 12.3 points — and a team-high 14.1 in SEC games — and virtually all of them come in the paint. Or at the free-throw stripe because he is UT's most-fouled player.
"For him, it's just the next step,'' said coach Cuonzo Martin.
A step he won't take until next year.
Maymon is a 6-foot-7, 265-pound junior. He's in his second season at UT, a transfer from Marquette where he cut bait nine
games into his freshman year.
Between Marquette and Tennessee, Maymon is 0-for-7 on 3-point attempts. But don't write him off.
Martin on Monday compared him to Michigan State's Draymond Green. That's high praise.
"They're very similar,'' Martin said. "The key right now is Draymond has a better stroke from the 3-point line.''
He didn't always. Green made only two treys in his first two years as a Spartan. He made 37 as a junior and is clipping along at 38.6 percent as a senior.
Martin is an even better role model. He was nonexistent beyond the arc his first two years at Purdue, then blossomed into a prolific and accurate 3-point marksman his last two years.
"I've said from day one,'' said Martin, "the next phase of Jeronne's game is really knocking that 3-point shot down.''
For now, Maymon is playing to his strength, literally and figuratively.
He's averaging 7.9 rebounds, has seven double-doubles and has narrowly missed four others. After seeing very little playing time as a sophomore, he broke out in Maui in November with a 32-point, 20-rebound explosion against Memphis.
He is the team's MVP, it says here.
Extending his offense beyond the paint has always been on the table. It was, according to his father, Tim Maymon, the primary reason he left Marquette so quickly.
In Martin's system, Maymon primarily plays inside but he isn't anchored there. He frequently handles the ball at the key and has success driving the lane.
I wondered if this is the role he envisioned in leaving Marquette for Tennessee.
"I didn't envision anything,'' he said. "I just wanted to get on the floor.
"I'm a ballplayer. Wherever Coach Martin wants me to play, that's where I'm gonna play.''
Next year he'll probably shoot more from where Coach Martin wants him to shoot. He's got all summer to work on it.
"My shot is fine,'' Maymon said. "I've just got to be more confident in myself.
"It would add another dynamic to our team.''
Maymon is already adding several dynamics to his team. One more wouldn't hurt.
