We all know that new coach Steve Donahue's offense is much more reliant on the three ball than Skinner's Flex offense. But the numbers just 10 games into the season are pretty incredible in comparison.
Through the first 10 games of this season, BC has attempted 231 three-pointers, up 81 attempts from last season through 10 games. The Eagles have made 40 more shots from beyond the arc, too. An extra 120 points is always nice, eh?
This year's team is averaging 23.1 attempts per game, up over 8 attempts per game from last year. Four BC players are averaging over four attempts a game this season -- Biko Paris (4.9), Reggie Jackson (4.6), Joe Trapani (4.4) and Danny Rubin (4.2) -- compared to just two players from a season ago (Trapani 4.4 and Jackson 4.1).
Most importantly, the Eagles are making a greater percentage of their 3-point attempts. This year the team is averaging .368, compared to just .300 at this point in the season a year ago. At this point in the season last year, Reggie Jackson was shooting just .244 (10-41) from 3. This year, that percentage is up to a blistering .478 (22-46). Biko has gone from a 5-18 (.278) shooter to a 19-49 (.388) one. Heck, even Corey Raji (7-21) and Dallas Elmore (2-11) are contributing from long-range.
The only player on the roster whose production from beyond the arc is down this year is Joe Trapani -- from .364 (16-44) down to .273 (12-44), though he's averaging the same amount of attempts through 10 games as he was last season.
Hopefully the Eagles keep up their hot shooting from 3, and Trapani regains his confidence and his production from long-range.
