3 Pointer Season Trend

How good is UNLV at shooting the three? Take a look:

Who attempts the most threes?

782554Boise StateMountain West25
1253510New MexicoMountain West26
1394501TCUMountain West26
1695481Air ForceMountain West24
1826475WyomingMountain West26
2207443San Diego StateMountain West26
3218368Colorado StateMountain West25

Conclusion: Although arguable that the attempts are higher because we have played more games than the rest of our MWC opponents, we take the most threes but are middle of the pack in making them. The three pointer is the most difficult traditional shot in basketball - hence they are worth more points. Unless UNLV can make more of them, or play better defense (limiting our opponents scoring while we are missing), the Rebels should take fewer threes or be more selective. 

I had this chart generated, interesting stuff.

As compared to last season
