Proud of Josh and the coaches for diagnosing the flaws in his shot and putting in the work to correct them. As a freshman, his athleticism was clear but his shooting fundamentals were atrocious. He was raising the ball too high and shooting with a straight wrist. I had heard over the summer that he had been really going to work on his shot and I saw in the streamed practice that he really looked like he finally knew what he was doing with his shot. Now we have seen him carry that onto to the court in games. As his confidence grows, he will feel like taking the big shots, and I have a feeling that he will make some before the year is out. Good work, Josh! You don't need to be a gunner on this squad, but look for your opportunities and when they come, let it fly!
