    Its cool that they're trying to send a real team to be the USA rep, but honestly, couldn't they've found a more talented team to do it than Northern Iowa? There weren't ANY major conf schools that we're willing to give it a shot? When NIU gets crushed people are gonna claim "the experiment failed" when likely we just sent the wrong team.

    Do you watch college basketball? Do you really think the shot is treated as if it doesn't exist in the college game? Hell, Jay Wright's own team was bombing their way to the Elite 8 a few years ago.

    I think the bigger problem is USA basketball doesn't do a good enough job putting the team together and picking enough shooters. That may have been your point, and if it is clearly I agree. I just don't think the shot is ignored by American coaches.
