Film Session: Sheehey’s first half

  • 02/24/2012 8:03 am in

Will Sheehey got off to a strong start in Wednesday night’s win against North Carolina Central, scoring eight of his 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting. The sophomore showed a litte more bounce in his step since coming back from his ankle injury, rising high on his mid-range jumpers and slashing to the basket from the corners.

A look at his first half buckets in the latest edition of Film Session.

Derek Elston gets a steal on the right block and pushes it up the court. He quickly looks to get rid of the ball and sees Sheehey:

And it’s another pull-up jumper with some high lift:

    The third one is my favorite. Thanks, as always, for these excellent film sessions!

  • Hulls actually had an amazing left handed pass on that play.  Why can’t he do that more often??? 

    It should be noted that 2 of these plays actually came off of ‘not smart’ plays by Sheehy.  He went in to nowhere on that 2nd one where he got rejected.  Was really angry about that.  Luckily the block was too hard and we were able to track it.  The 4th one, Sheehy has no business trying to throw it up to Elston, of all people, to lead a break like that.  He needs to take it until someone commits to him…then throw it up closer to the basket.
