For this KU basketball team, not shooting 3s is the bigger risk

It’s time to trust these Kansas Jayhawks with three-pointers.

That’s hard, I know. KU fans are used to March heartbreak following bad shooting nights. Coach Bill Self has been quoted over and over about how a poor three-point shooting game often coincides with the end of his team’s season.

And yes, the Jayhawks could miss a lot of them again in their most important game later this year. It’s possible. Anything is.

That’s not as likely as you might think, though.

KU has good three-point shooters. A lot of them. Roughly halfway through the season, Frank Mason is at 55 percent, while Lagerald Vick and Svi Mykhailiuk are both at 44.
