Coach Jamie Dixon said star guard Ashton Gibbs needs to stop passing up open shots. Gibbs is 0 for 9 from 3-point range in the past three games. He attempted one 3-pointer in the loss to USF and three against Louisville, and one of those was a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Here are Dixon’s quotes from the post-game:
“This isn’t a short-term thing. This is where he passes up open shots and shot fakes and puts it down. We’ve wanted him to take more 3s for a while now. This isn’t just this year. This is something we’ve talked about often.”
I will have more on his topic in Monday’s Trib.
