Teams bank­ing on lift from more treys

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NEWS - By Ed­ward Lee

Joe Sher­burne, a grad­u­ate stu­dent for­ward for the UMBC men’s bas­ket­ball team, has a sim­ple ex­pla­na­tion for peo­ple who ask him why he takes more 3-point shots rather than drive to the bas­ket for a layup or dunk.

“I just tell peo­ple, ‘I’ll dunk when it’s worth three points,’ ” quipped Sher­burne, whose 45.0 suc­cess rate from be­hind the 3point arc in 2017-18 is the third-best sin­gle-sea­son mark in school his­tory. “So you can have your dunks. I’ll stand be­hind the line.”
