Kansas Basketball Experiment No. 3: Having Kevin McCullar shoot a ton of 3-pointers
This isn’t necessarily a scheme or a specific lineup the coaches should run, rather just giving Kevin McCullar the green light to shoot a three whenever he feels is right.
Kansas isn’t going to be a good 3-point shooting team this season. When the offense can’t get it going, buckets will be hard to come by. McCullar was often an offensive liability during the 2022-23 season — he shot sub-30% from long range — he showed some promise during the previous scrimmage.
To put it kindly, this game is a shoo-in for Kansas basketball. The final score won’t be close. Therefore, there’s no reason McCullar shouldn’t get some extra shots up, especially if KU continues to struggle from beyond the arc. After all, there’s no better practice than in-game practice.
McCullar might not take a similar step to Jalen Wilson or Ochai Agbaji, but from the looks of it, we are going to see a whole new player this season. His game would vastly improve if he could consistently shoot the 3-ball.
