I agree that we have an excellent 3 point defense not to mention how good we are at D in general. But these guys are going to launch some 3's. Their second best 3 shooter, Drew Windler, is a 6-9 forward so we gotta get a hand up. I think the key is pressuring the shots and defensive rebounding. We got this. Go Tigers
