Get the children to the storm celler, ma, there's a three-point barrage a-comin'! Charleston Southern ranks second in the country in 3FGA/FGA, with a smidge over half their shots against D-I opponents coming from outside (they've also played a pair of non-DI games). Yes, more than half of all their shots. This year they're averaging nearly 30 three-point tries per game. It's one of those teams, I'm sorry to say.
On the bright side, it's not what I would consider a frightening variety of those teams
Saah Nimley (5-8, 158) -- A career 32.9% shooter from three, not that this is going to discourage him. Nimley has been a heavy-workload dude for 3+ seasons and he ain't changing now. As is often the case with players his size, his accuracy inside the arc has been rough--just 38.3% for his career.
Arlon Harper (6-2, 180) -- Much better shooter, both inside and out, in his 3+ seasons than Nimley, and he's about on par, workload-wise. He's posted effective field goal percentages north of 50.0 in every season of his career. Turnovers a bit of a problem though.
Aaron Wheeler (6-4, 190) -- Hasn't made a three all year (0-4) but has been a decent secondary option thanks to effective shooting inside the arc (58.6%).
Paul Gombwer (6-6, 217) -- Likee Nimley and Harper, Gombwer is in his fourth year at CSU, and he's been a good defensive rebounder throughout his career. Always respect these shorter dudes who have that knack for pulling in rebounds. Gombwer is also an above-average three-point shooter for his career, though he prefers to do most of his shooting closer to the rim.
Cedrick Bowen (6-5, 232) -- Not a three-point threat but impressively effective from two during his career (about 59%). Southern's best offensive rebounder.
