#3. Thank you for finally shooting the ball, Miller Kopp!
The first two times Kopp touched the ball on offense for the Hoosiers he hesitated and didn’t look to actually shoot his shot. For a kid that’s shooting a career-high 45.0 percent from three-point range this season, that doesn’t make sense.
Finally, Race Thompson after Kopp passed up on a three and passed to him before he got fouled, the sixth-year senior told Kopp to “shoot the ball” or something along those lines, which clearly stuck in Kopp’s head. Kopp took three shots from beyond the arc and knocked down two of them in a span of three minutes after that happened and it was much needed.
Kopp finished the game with 11 points, his highest point total since scoring 13 against Elon on December 20th, on 4-for-9 shooting and 3-for-7 from three-point land. And guess what, I would’ve been fine if all nine of Kopp’s attempts were from three, just please keep shooting because we need you to fire away.
