Film Session: Sheehey’s perfect afternoon

  • 02/18/2013 11:56 am in

Will Sheehey finished a perfect 9-of-9 from the field en route to a career-high 22 points in Saturday’s blowout win against the Boilermakers. That 9-of-9 mark set an Indiana record for most makes without a miss. Sheehey scored on the break and in Indiana’s halfcourt offense — often making smart reads from the wing to sneak around the defense and score.

A look at three smart reads and a 3-pointer in the latest edition of Film Session:

I. Derek Elston sets a ball screen for Yogi Ferrell on the right wing as Sheehey is set up down in the left corner:


As Ferrell crosses over right, Sheehey starts to curl into the lane as Terone Johnson is watching the action on the strong side of the court:


As Johnson looks left for Sheehey on the baseline with Ferrell curling around and drawing the attention of Sandi Marcius, Sheehey fills the open space in the lane:


He catches with plenty of room with Marcius drawn even closer to Ferrell:


And throws down the monster slam:


Sheehey’s ability to see Ferrell making his move while¬†simultaneously¬†leaving Johnson and making his own move to the lane allowed for this jam. This was Sheehey’s third score of the game and the Florida native’s energy — which he thrives off of — was evident midway through the first half here.
