Re: Parfait Bitee

And I'll never forget that shooting clinic that Jimmy put on at Duke the following year. I think he went 8-10 from the arc and most of his shots were well behind the three-point line. That packed house at Cameron Indoor was stunned by his performance. Such an amazing shooter. Perfect form. He sure w...

Re: Parfait Bitee

Bitee shot almost 52% from the arc his senior year, and he also became a much better distributor. Ulmer is one of my all-time favorite Rhody players. He had 2-3 highlight reel dunks every game and was probably our best rebounder his senior year. As noted above, it's amazing that Baron couldn't get t...

Disagree. I like the foul up 3. Hate seeing teams shoot a potential tying 3 and hate seeing teams make 3's. Making a 3-pointer is very common these days.
