Three Point Defense


Our beloved T-pups have been in the bottom 10 in three point defense (in terms of opponent's 3pt shooting %) since 2008, and it seems like our losses lately have been because we're getting burned by 3's. Here is our opponents 3pt  shooting  in our last three losses:

3pt%      3pt Points

55.6%    45

50%       33
58.8%    30

And here's our opponent's 3pt shooting in our last three wins

 3pt%      3pt Points

33.3%    12

23.8%   15

34.8%    24

Clearly this trend is killing us. But what is the cause?

Is it Rambis's defensive scheme? I don't know about that one because we already couldn't defend 3 pointers before he got here. Is it personel? That too has changed dramaticly in the last three years (unless it's all Brewer's fault, but I'll refuse to accept that cause of the effort that he gives). Wes, Brewer and Martell have been praised for their defense right? Is it because of our point guard play? Is Rubio and his amazing defense the savior here as well?  Sorry about all the questions, but I've been following CH for about a year now and know that somebody out there will have the answers.
