Over the past couple years I have felt Boeheim allows his opponents to attempt open 3 point shots to start the game. Not exactly open, but we play a bit loose along the 3 point line. Sure this probably has to do with our defense picking up the intensity on close outs after we give up a couple early 3's, but i actually feel these makes benefit us. I never mind seeing a team come out and hit 2 or 3 consecutive 3 pointers to start the game. Opponents see the ball go in and fall in love with the 3. It has seemed to happen almost every single game(or what feels like) this season. I know it has happened a lot over the past 5 years or so as well. I doubt JB would admit it, but I bet he doesn't mind it as well. Watch as the season goes on. It never fails, but we quickly adjust.
