Marquette may be the worst three point shooting team in the conference, but Jamil Wilson has been hot lately from beyond the arc. In the past two games against Butler and Seton Hall, Jamil is 7 of 10 from three. He was 3 of 5 against Butler and 4 of 5 against Seton Hall. In the Butler game all his threes came stopping Butler runs, including the start of the second half when Butler scored 8 of the first 9 points to go up 8. In the Seton Hall game Jamil started out on fire hitting his first 4 and all within the first 5 minutes of the game.
If Jamil is able to knock down 3s consistently it makes him that much harder to guard with his ability to get to the basket. The biggest thing is he’s made these threes in transition and all have been good shots. If he can get confident in his outside shooting it adds another dynamic to Marquette’s offense that will help open up looks for Davante and Chris.
Hopefully Jamil will continue his hot shooting from 3 because they are going to need it facing off against Creighton, the three point leaders in the Big East, who make about 11 a game.
