USC’s improved three-point shooting could lead to deep NCAA tournament run

Before he pulled up from the top of the key two weeks ago, Isaiah Mobley wasn’t exactly lighting it up from long range. The USC sophomore hadn’t hit a three-point shot since Feb. 20. Entering the Pac-12 tournament, he’d only attempted 24 all season, making seven.

As USC (24-7) heads to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 14 years, it’s not exactly known for its three-point prowess, either. No team remaining in the NCAA tournament relied less on threes this season than the Trojans, who made about a third of those attempted.
